A Global Leader in Sustainable, Eco-Efficient Business Practices

Sustainability at Sun Chemical

Sun Chemical is constantly working to promote sustainable solutions. Our approach to sustainability guides the way we develop, manufacture and distribute products, as well as how we work with our customers and suppliers.

Working with industry leaders and in line with DIC Corporation’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, we are reducing global CO2 emissions by increasing the use of bio-renewable and recyclable materials, while promoting the value of these activities throughout the supply chain. Our emphasis on sustainability continues to be fundamental to our innovation and product development and is gaining broad support from our customers.


Sun Chemical takes a phased approach to our sustainability efforts and uses a roadmap to improve the eco-efficiency of our processes and products. Every year we publish a sustainability report which shows our progress in achieving our eco-efficiency goals and helps us establish actions to improve, recheck and remeasure. We invite you to request a copy of our latest Sustainability Report.

Our Sustainability Policy

Sun Chemical’s sustainability policy stresses its responsibility to raise awareness about environmental issues in the industries it serves. Product stewardship and risk management are also important components of the policy with a commitment to take an analytical-based approach to its efforts.

Providing customers with enhanced sustainability of their processes and end products is the ultimate goal of Sun Chemical’s sustainability policy. In order to reach that goal, Sun Chemical will use rigorous development processes and analytical tools to evaluate and improve the eco-efficiency of both its manufacturing procedures and products.

This data-driven approach in the policy means Sun Chemical will be able to set improvement targets for its processes on energy and water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and solid waste emissions as well as develop products with a structured approach that includes risk management and eco-efficiency improvements as criteria.

Sun Chemical reports this data and its ongoing progress in achieving its improvement targets annually in its sustainability reports. Request your copy of our latest Sustainability Report.
