For decades, both Bostik and our parent company, Arkema, have made focusing on the future a part of our corporate vision. Sustainability has been a key area we have been looking at for well over 30 years. As noted in the Brundtland commission report of 1987, Arkema stated long ago that sustainability meant:
“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Often considering how the environment, economy, and society intersect, we see how sustainability influences the choices we make for our business, our disposable hygiene customers, and product consumers today and tomorrow. At Bostik, we are continuously working to:
- Deliver sustainable solutions driven by innovation
- Better understand how our adhesives impact the sustainability goals of our customers
- Manage our product development activities as a responsible manufacturer
- Cultivate an open dialogue and close relationships with our stakeholders
Reducing our impact on the environment involves a variety of moving parts. Everything from the supply chain during creation to disposal of the finished product after use must be taken into account and work together—often called a lifecycle assessment. Our teams look for opportunities from every angle, and research continues.
Collaboration Is Key to Success
To achieve greater sustainability in our operations and yours, working together is essential. Sharing a common language and an understanding of areas of interest is the first step. Together, we can partner in crafting sustainable solutions that meet the needs and expectations you have, we have, and end users have.
