Arkema Becomes Member of World Business Council for Sustainable Development

Chemical and materials manufacturer Arkema, Colombes, France, has announced that it has joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and is working in partnership with this network to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world.

With its unique specialty materials expertise, Arkema contributes through its innovative solutions and the management of its activities, to addressing four major issues of today and tomorrow: growing urbanization, scarcity of resources, climate change and the challenge of new technologies.

In line with the Paris Agreement, Arkema adopted an ambitious new climate plan at the beginning of the year, contributing to a global warming target of “well below 2°C” and thus committed to reducing its overall GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions by 38% by 2030, compared to its 2015 levels (Science Based Target) – regardless of the increase in its production volumes.
