Huntsman Performance Products Signs Charter for Sustainable Cleaning
The Charter was presented at ACI’s Annual Meeting &
“As a supplier of essential chemistries to the cleaning products industry, Huntsman is in an ideal position to help create effective, sustainable and sustainably-made cleaning products,” said Dr. Chiu. “Huntsman does a great deal towards ensuring our business operates sustainably. For Huntsman, the next logical step is to help create sustainability standards around which entire industries can operate.”
The Charter requires signatory companies to report on four environmental-performance metrics: energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, water use and waste generation. These metrics are then compiled in ACI’s annual sustainability report to show the progress of the industry.
Companies are also required to formally commit to the ACI Principles of Sustainability and work toward implementing Essential Sustainability Procedures and Activities (SPAs). The SPAs address all aspects of cleaning product manufacturing from material use to the eventual disposal of packaging.
“Leaders throughout the cleaning product supply chain recognize that
operating sustainably needs to be a part of the company’s DNA. The ACI
and its member companies have made great strides in sustainability
performance, and the Charter provides signatories with a path toward
tracking, implementing and communicating sustainability initiatives,”
The ACI Charter for Sustainable Cleaning is one of many initiatives Huntsman is taking to track and innovate sustainable performance. To learn more about Huntsman and sustainability, please visit www.huntsman.com.
