Archroma, a global leader in colour and specialty chemicals, has become a signatory of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, joining the world’s leading voluntary corporate social responsibility initiative, with more than 9,500 participating companies from 160 countries. The company is committed towards making the industry more sustainable.

Archroma has formally pledged to support and promote the UN Global Compact’s 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. This is fully aligned with Archroma’s sustainability policy and code of conduct.

"Archroma shares the UN Global Compact goal to contribute to a more stable and inclusive global market and help build prosperous and thriving societies. We also believe that advancing the cause of sustainability is an ongoing effort, and that being a participant to the UN Global Compact will help us to walk further down this path and to convince those in our sphere of influence to join along," said Alexander Wessels, CEO of Archroma.

The company has introduced several innovations aiming to make textile or paper manufacturing more sustainable, such as its biomass-based EarthColors range or non-fluorinated Smartrepel water-repellent finish. Archroma also implemented advanced, resource-saving manufacturing processes at several of its production facilities, such as its zero discharge facility in Jamshoro, Pakistan. (RR)
