How do we know?

Our externally verified case studies show the sustainability and performance benefits offered by our products in a variety of real-life applications. They demonstrate the carbon dioxide (CO2) savings achievable by using our bio-based solutions, as well as which United Nations Sustainable Development Goals they are contributing to. All case studies present the CO2 savings taking into account the initial CO2 footprint our material has.

We are serious about sustainability

Case studies are just one way that we show our customers and partners that we are serious about sustainability and our commitment to become Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030. We also conduct Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) on our products to determine their cradle to gate carbon emissions, produce up to 100% bio-based products and continuously work on new innovations that are assessed against our sustainability goals.
