Innovation and sustainability are embedded in the culture at Avient. As a specialty materials formulator, our proven ability to innovate materials that enable our customers’ sustainability goals, while delivering performance, is a key differentiator for our company. In fact, our sustainable solutions portfolio has grown nearly 3.5x since our baseline year 2016.
As we have transformed from a commodity company to a true specialty formulator, our guiding principles are outlined in our Sustainability Promise. Our people and material science expertise drive our innovation pipeline. We have enabled our innovation strategy through continued investment in R&D, Sales and Marketing. 我们用来衡量创新成功与否的标准之一是我们的“活力指数”。该指数显示过去五年内推出的解决方案在我们的专业销售额中所占的百分比。In 2022, our Vitality Index reached 33%, validating the strength of our technology portfolio.
