Sustainability objectives

Due to its location in Gouda it is vital to sustain our relations with the city and its inhabitants. The Croda strategy on Sustainability, including Responsible Care, fits very well in this objective and as such the Quarterback project is a significant contribution to the strategy. The startegy consists in:

  • Reducing natural gas consumption
  • Reducing electricity consumption
  • Reducing water consumption
  • Reducing chemical usage
  • Reducing noise
  • Reducing transportation of product

The flagship target to decrease CO2 emission by 25% was achieved by using a combination of increased energy conversion efficiency, improving the chemical production process itself and using biogas from glycerine to replace natural gas.
