Because the high-quality plastics and their components that our company develops and produces are the key to a sustainable future.


This is Covestro’s purpose: purpose of Covestro: We want to make the world a brighter place.


This powerful purpose permeates our entire company. It sets the basic direction, and we devote all our energy to it. In this way we demonstrate responsible action for society and for future generations. At the same time, we combine our commitment to the preservation of the natural foundations of life with our efforts to create lasting value - in accordance with our sustainability principle "People, Planet, Profit”.


In particular, we are making every effort to implement the Circular Economy, the great social and economic transformation project to make the world climate-neutral and protect its shrinking resources. We are fully committed to the circular economy – this is our vision that concretizes our purpose.


Guided by this long-term strategic vision, we are anchoring the principle of circular economy within the entire company in order to realize it comprehensively. At the same time, we want to become a driving force for circular thinking and action in business and society. We will pursue this path with commitment and consistency. In the interests of our customers, suppliers and consumers, with a view to politics, science and capital markets and, last but not least, for the benefit of our own employees.


Our mission dictates how we will achieve the Covestro vision: We want to promote innovation and growth with profitable products and technologies that benefit society and reduce the impact on the environment.


In this way, we continuously strive to reduce energy consumption and emissions in our production processes. Our products, which are needed in many important areas, make the lives of many people more environmentally friendly and healthier, safer, more comfortable and more efficient.


We do all this in line with the three core values of our company: we are curious, courageous and colorful. With this unique philosophy we push boundaries and strive for the better - day after day.
