Sustainability

The future, through chemistry

As a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, Chemtura Corporation is committed to Responsible Care®, the chemical industry's voluntary initiative to protect the environment, ensure the safety and security of its operations, and safeguard the health and safety of employees and the communities where we live and work.

To help ensure that we uphold the standards of Responsible Care®, Chemtura has adopted methodologies for tracking, assessing, and reporting our performance in numerous areas, including personal health and safety, operational safety, operational performance, generation of hazardous and non-hazardous waste, and water usage. We consider these indicators to be the vital signs of a healthy company in our industry, and we are dedicated to continuously improving our performance in these areas.

Within the Great Lakes Solutions business we strive to create technologically advanced products for applications with environmental benefits - from compounds to control mercury from coal-fired power plant emissions to our innovative Emerald Innovation™ series of polymeric flame retardants. We work proactively with our customers to ensure that once sold, our products are transported, stored and used following best practices to achieve the lowest possible potential for worker exposure or release to then environment.

We work hard every day to be a force for improving the sustainability of our planet. We have come a long way on our journey and as we look ahead, we see endless possibilities for a better future, through chemistry
