Contributing to a more sustainable future
Global sustainability issues have always been at the core of SONGWON’s business strategy, built on the organization’s commitment to preserve natural resources and maximize their efficient use where possible. Today’s customers want solutions that can support them to reduce their environmental footprint by cutting consumption during manufacturing and reduce the weight of their products. They also seek products that are more easily recycled or include recycled materials.

SONGWON’s product portfolio, technological expertise and history of innovation enable the development of materials that can help customers tackle a wide variety of environmental issues. SONGWON’s products make plastics more durable allowing easier recyclability and reducing waste. They also support the development of stronger materials with lighter weights which require fewer resources. By helping customers select the most suitable stabilization systems for their applications, SONGWON is positively helping to reduce emissions and waste streams over the life cycles of its customers’ products.

Contributing to plastics recycling is an important issue for SONGWON, its customers and the environment and has led the organization to develop several strategies for polyolefin automotive compounds. It is also collaborating with various project partners along the product value chain relating to the circular economy. Furthermore, the company also looks inside in a continual drive to optimize processes, more efficiently source and use resources to reduce SONGWON’s environmental impact and explore solutions to improve the recyclability of plastics. One of its most recent successes was to become one of the first chemical companies in the world to package its products in 20kg PE-bags made with 50% recycled PE sourced from its customers.

To lead the development of the SONGWON’s global sustainability strategy and ensure that a sustainability framework is embedded and aligned in its corporate strategy and planning, SONGWON’s 1st Chief Sustainability Officer, Olivier Keiser was appointed in April.
