We see a sustainable futureFinancially, environmentally and socially, sustainability is rapidly becoming a businessimperative. Our customers require it. Our investors expect it. Our communities demand it.Our world deserves it.As a leading global chemical producer, Huntsman clearly recognizes our responsibility todevelop and manufacture products that are sustainable and to do so in ways that make asustainable and vibrant world possible for future generations.By driving innovation and growth, we create value for all our stakeholders today, constantlymindful of our impact on tomorrow. Across the globe, we demonstrate our genuine andlasting commitment to sustainability by developing efficient new products, perfectingeco-friendly technologies and reducing our own carbon footprint. For example: • Vydro® polyurethane foam substrate, an efficient growing medium on eco-friendly green roofs, weighs up to 70% less than other substrate systems, retains up to 30 times its own weight in water, helps improve urban air quality and reduces stormwater runoff. • As the demand for clean energy increases, manufacturers of wind turbines look to Huntsman’s amines for their hardening characteristics, which enable the production of longer blades, resulting in greater generation of clean electricity. • Huntsman’s resins are used in automotive fuel cells that create electricity without combustion, making electric-powered vehicles cleaner, quieter and more efficient than their fuel-burning counterparts. • Efficient dyes from our Textile Effects division enable textile producers to manage their “water footprint” by dramatically reducing cycle times and cutting process water and energy consumption by 50%. • Quality TiO2 pigments from Huntsman, designed for use in light- and heat-reflective paints and coatings, help reduce energy consumption and keep homes and buildings cooler and more comfortable. • Worldwide, Huntsman’s manufacturing plants are actively managing energy consumption, minimizing waste and reducing emissions. A participant in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Save Energy Now program, Huntsman has committed to reducing energy use 25% by 2020.
