As a global leader in innovative sustainable solutions, we collaborate closely with our customers to help them achieve their sustainability goals. Through material science, formulation expertise, and deep market knowledge, we partner with our customers to develop solutions that achieve the sustainable attributes desired at the performance level needed for the application. Two impactful ways we help our customers is enabling solutions that advance a circular economy and/or reduce their carbon footprint.
As the world continues to shift from operating in a linear economy to a circular economy, Avient is proud to be a part of the solution. 循环经济旨在消除废弃物和污染，延长产品和材料的使用周期，并再生自然系统。
通过我们的设计专业知识和材料科学，我们帮助客户减少材料使用，实现可回收性或回收成分，并提高物理性能。With resources like Cycleworks™ Innovation Center for Plastic Recycling and the newly launched Color Prediction Service, Avient continues to strengthen our expertise to enable our customers to meet their sustainability commitments.
In alignment with our customers, we set a 2030 sustainability goal to enable 100% of our materials for the consumer packaging market to be recyclable, reusable, or compostable. While we continue to make progress on this goal, we recognize that only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled by endusers.* Through our alliances and partnerships, we remain committed to ending plastic waste in the environment though global investments and projects.
