The company aims to assist in developing innovative solutions to sustainability issues, including product safety, food waste, and plastics recycling
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, October 30, 2017 – The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) announced today that ExxonMobil Chemical Company has joined as a top-tier member, joining over 100 TSC members working on creating more sustainable products for a more sustainable planet. TSC translates the best sustainability science into business tools that are used all over the world to create more sustainable consumer products.
ExxonMobil Chemical, which has one of the largest manufacturing capacities in the world, will join projects in several active TSC sectors including food, beverage and agriculture, textiles, home and personal care, packaging, electronics and more. Because of its sizable chemical and manufacturing footprint, ExxonMobil Chemical will be active in many of TSC’s sectors and advisory committees.
Euan Murray, TSC Chief Executive, states, “Creating more sustainable consumer products requires the collaboration of companies up and down the supply chain with a common goal. We welcome ExxonMobil as a leader in manufacturing and now a leader in sustainable solutions across the value chain. We look forward to collaborating and learning from the ExxonMobil sustainability team.”
The company is committed to conducting business in a manner that is compatible with the environmental and economic needs of the communities in which it operates, and that protects the safety, security, and health of its employees, those involved with its operations, customers, and the public. In addition, by working together with TSC and other partners, ExxonMobil Chemical will develop broader, innovative solutions to issues such as product safety, food waste, and plastics recycling.
“Sustainability is fundamental to economic growth and prosperity and is deeply embedded in our business line strategies,” said Dave Andrew, vice president of Sustainability, Chemicals and Downstream, for ExxonMobil Chemical Company. “As a leading chemicals company, we believe technology innovation and collaboration will be critical to solve the complex sustainability challenges society is facing globally. We look forward to working with The Sustainability Consortium and its members to accelerate sustainable solutions.”
