Value Chain

The key to generating economic value and lasting impact across the value chain depends heavily on partnerships with both suppliers and customers, and developing innovative solutions to improve our collective sustainability performance.

In addition to addressing the environmental, social and economic impacts directly resulting from our operations, we also understand the opportunity to drive performance in these areas across our value chain. This includes looking upstream at our suppliers and identifying ways to improve efficiency and influence the development of responsible practices. It also means supporting our customers downstream to help them achieve their sustainability goals and standards. 


Advancing Our Customers

We are constantly working with our customers to find innovative solutions that will help them advance their own products. In many cases, this allows us to work with customers who have their own ambitions for sustainability by developing products with superior efficiency, durability, or cutting edge applications like those for renewable energy.
