Cove­stro wins Green Sup­ply Chain Award

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - ENTERPRISE -

The Shang­hai En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Bureau named Cove­stro, a world-lead­ing sup­plier of high-tech poly­mer ma­te­ri­als, a Star of Green Sup­ply Chain dur­ing the Shang­hai 100+ En­ter­prises in Green Sup­ply Chain 2016 award cer­e­mony recently.

The au­thor­ity thus rec­og­nizes the com­pany’s con­sis­tent ef­forts to man­age its sus­tain­abil­ity mea­sures across the value chain. Awards were pre­sented to 30 com­pa­nies in seven cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing the Star of Green Sup­ply Chain, In­no­va­tive Prac­tice Award, In­dus­try Pi­o­neer Award and In­no­va­tive De­sign Award. Cove­stro was the only chem­i­cal com­pany among four in the Star of Green Sup­ply Chain cat­e­gory.

“Sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment for us en­com­passes the prin­ci­ples of ‘peo­ple, planet, profit.’ This means we strive to mit­i­gate the neg­a­tive im­pact of our ac­tions on the en­vi­ron­ment, ad­vance so­ci­ety and at the same time cre­ate value for the com­pany,” said An­nette Wieden­bach, head of com­mu­ni­ca­tions, pub­lic af­fairs and sus­tain­abil­ity at Cove­stro Greater China.

As both a do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional cen­ter, Shang­hai plays an im­por­tant role in the eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of China. In a bid to use the mar­ket’s lever­age to pro­mote en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity, the Shang­hai En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Bureau launched the Shang­hai 100+ En­ter­prises in Green Sup­ply Chain Pro­gram in 2016 and in­vited multi­na­tional com­pa­nies, State-owned en­ter­prises and pri­vate firms in Shang­hai to sub­mit pro­pos­als to the city’s en­vi­ron­men­tal au­thor­i­ties.
