Our key projects

Where Covestro pushes the boundaries of sustainability

The best proof of our commitment to sustainability is the many projects in which Covestro has been able to realize trailblazing ideas for more efficient and resource-saving technologies together with its partners. We present some of the most impressive developments and collaborations here.

Sustainability at Covestro has many faces. We are promoting it by expanding our basis of raw materials, continuously optimizing the production process in all our plants and enabling our customers to design their production processes in a more efficient and sustainable manner.

Almost all innovations by Covestro follow the aim of bringing together the economy and ecological aspects in order to benefit our environment and also support our customers’ business success. This is why the key projects we present here can only give a small insight into the broad field that is “sustainability at Covestro”. You can find additional exciting stories here!
