Trinseo | Climate Change

Climate Change

There is an urgent need for sustainable products that is backed by consumer-driven demand that companies take responsibility for their environmental footprint.

Trinseo’s commitment to protecting the environment is central to everything we do. We continuously evaluate our environmental impact and improve our processes to promote resource conservation throughout the life cycles of our products and prevent adverse environmental impacts and waste. We follow the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® Product Safety Code guidelines, which require companies to include product safety and stewardship as part of their management systems. Our business plans are based on this standard, and annual self-assessments assist in monitoring progress and performance.

Climate change has a significant impact on our world – from extreme weather conditions to rising sea levels. We acknowledge the urgent need to address climate change and support global efforts to combat it.

Our Climate Change category is just one part of our 2030 Sustainability Goals, which together, will help us achieve a more sustainable future for our company and the communities we serve.

2030 Sustainability Goals

Of our 15 Sustainability Goals, the first three are dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint by focusing on our decarbonization strategy and increasing our use of renewable resources.

By 2035, reduce our Scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity by 35%
We have increased the amount of electricity generated from non-fossil sources from 18% in 2020 to 22% in 2021. Our renewable energy comes from biomass, wind, solar, and hydroelectric sources, which make up 12% of our total fuel sources.
We are actively developing a strategy for Scope 3 emissions management. Throughout the year Trinseo has worked to develop a baseline understanding of our Scope 3 emissions as a way to institute tracking and reporting.
