The report highlights the company’s approach, contributions, and progress related to its four cornerstones of sustainability: people, products, planet, and performance. The report also establishes Avient’s sustainability goals for 2030.
“Supporting sustainability in all its forms is a defining issue of our time, and we are proud of the many contributions our associates at Avient are making,” says Robert M. Patterson, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Avient Corporation. “With the establishment of our ambitious sustainability goals for 2030, we continue to meet the needs of the present, while helping to ensure future generations have the ability to do the same.”
This is the second Sustainability Report issued by Avient. Enhancements to the previous report include:
- Increased data and transparency in areas like environmental data, safety performance, and employee demographics
- Addressing the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) frameworks, and commenced alignment to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
- Broader and updated case studies
- Easier navigation with hyperlinks and an interactive table of contents
“At Avient, our focus and investment have never been greater when it comes to sustainability,” Patterson adds. “Our endeavors represent both an important responsibility to our planet and people, as well as a significant growth opportunity for our customers and company.”
