H.C. Starck Releases First Sustainability Report

October 15, 2013

H.C. Starck recently announced the release of its first sustainability report, thus strengthening its profile as responsible corporate citizen in the specialty chemicals industry. The report contains information about the company’s economic, environmental and social performance, along with the principles of its corporate governance. In addition, the company’s product range for increasing the sustainability of high-tech applications is included.

The report also details the company’s own contribution to the long-term supply of conflict-free raw materials, including the conservation of resources. The report meets the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and was awarded a “B” rating by the GRI, which confirms that H.C. Starck has firmly integrated sustainability in its day-to-day business.

“We are very pleased with the positive evaluation of the first sustainability report ever in our company’s history,” said Andreas Meier, president and CEO. “Sustainability is a core element of our company’s strategy. It incorporates our entire value chain–starting with the long term supply of conflict-free raw materials and modern, environmentally friendly production facilities and processes to our responsible employee management and the delivery of our products to the customer.”
