WILMINGTON, Del.— Chemours has issued its first Corporate Responsibility Commitment report, detailing the Wilmington-based chemical firm’s 2017 actions and outcomes.

In addition, the report lays out the company’s commitment as 10 goals it has targeted for completion by 2030. The goals span eight areas: safety excellence, vibrant communities, empowered employees, climate, water quality, waste, sustainable offerings and a sustainable supply chain.

As part of the social responsibility initiative, Chemours has signed on to the United Nations Global Compact. It joins more than 8,000 companies who have pledged to operate responsibly and in alignment with universally accepted sustainability principles.

“Chemours is a performance-driven company dedicated to making chemistry as responsible as it is essential to everyday life,” Mark Vergnano, Chemours president and CEO, said in a statement. “We are already taking meaningful steps toward achieving our 2030 goals and will report our progress every step of the way. We are fully committed to being a new kind of chemistry company for a world that demands more.”

Chemours is a publicly held spinoff from DuPont. Its core products include its line of Viton-brand fluoroelastomers. The firm has about 7,000 employees and 26 manufacturing sites serving roughly 4,000 customers in North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Europe.
