Some of the highlights of Archroma
achievements in 2018
Archroma joins The United Nations
Global Compact Initiative
Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals,
has become a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact,
joining the world’s leading voluntary corporate social
responsibility initiative, with more than 9,500 participating
companies from 160 countries.
As part of its deep-rooted commitment to lead the way toward
making its industry more sustainable, Archroma formally pledges
to support and promote the UN Global Compact’s 10 principles in
the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and
anti-corruption. This is fully aligned with Archroma’s
Sustainability Policy and Code of Conduct.
In its 4 years of existence, Archroma has already made a
recognized contribution to its commitment to make the industry
more sustainable. The company introduced several innovations
aiming to make textile or paper manufacturing more sustainable,
such as its biomass-based EarthColors range or non-fluorinated
Smartrepel® water-repellent finish. Archroma also implemented
advanced, resource-saving manufacturing processes at several of
its production facilities, such as its zero discharge facility
in Jamshoro, Pakistan.
“Archroma shares the UN Global Compact goal to contribute to
a more stable and inclusive global market and help build
prosperous and thriving societies. We also believe that
advancing the cause of sustainability is an ongoing effort, and
that being a participant to the UN Global Compact will help us
to walk further down this path and to convince those in our
sphere of influence to join along,” comments Alexander Wessels,
CEO of Archroma.
