International fuel additives company Infineum on Thursday (22 April) shared its first corporate Sustainability report in conjunction with Earth Day.
Infineum said its purpose is to create a sustainable future through innovative chemistry and this report is an important milestone for the organisation.
The report has been developed in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and includes Infineum’s sustainability agenda, targets, and path to creating a more sustainable future.
It also sets out some of the progress the company already has made and details sustainability goals and targets for 2025.
With this report, the company aims to bring clarity to its ambitions on many fronts, including HSE, product development, supply chains, operations, colleagues and community.
“The world is changing quickly. We must all embrace sustainability in order to maintain our quality of life as human beings, to retain the diversity of life on Earth and to enable the Earth’s ecosystems to thrive,” said Trevor Russell, Infineum CEO.
“Innovative chemistry has a vital role to play in this and, in our particular industry, we must provide the products needed on the journey towards the electrification of mobility while at the same time helping to make the internal combustion engine as clean as it can be.
“I am pleased to be introducing our first sustainability report, in which we share details of how we are driving towards that purpose. We are making lots of progress, but we know we have a way to go.”
“I have a vision of Infineum being an organisation that markets innovative products to solve the sustainability challenges of the world. This report begins to outline how we are making that vision a reality and I am incredibly proud to be publishing this on Earth Day,” added Maurizio Abbondanza, Infineum Technology & Sustainability Director.
