Global IMCD Sustainable Solutions Framework Programme

Our commercial teams and technical experts have been promoting greener, healthier, and more sustainable products and formulations across all eight Business Groups for several years now. We streamlined and aligned this approach within the Global IMCD Sustainable Solutions Framework Programme. The new programme ensures that our Business Groups serve the needs of their respective markets while staying aligned to our overall approach to promoting sustainable products.

The IMCD Sustainable Solutions Framework is a key programme in our sustainability strategy. It demonstrates our added value as expert, co-innovator and market influencer. 

The programme benefits our customers, principal suppliers, and our teams

At IMCD, we are committed to taking our customers' sustainability challenges and working toward solving them. Whether the priority is CO2 reduction, recyclability or any other challenge, together, we can explore all the sustainable possibilities in one place, at one time. Sustainable Solutions makes it easy for our customers to know where to start with their sustainability goals and educate themselves on the core sustainability trends. We are then there to provide the consulting they need when making decisions and the technical support when implementing new solutions. 
Sustainable Solutions allows us to consistently market the value our principals' sustainable materials bring to our customers and increase the visibility of their materials around the world. With a one-stop resource for information, we can strategically align with our principals' sustainability goals and best position their materials to our customers.
