Albemarle CEO, Kent Masters, said, “Our annual sustainability report is an opportunity to share the progress we have made on our key environmental and diversity targets. 

“Albemarle is a values-driven organisation that strives to operate with transparency and integrity. As we continue to execute against our growth strategy and innovate around new products and technologies, we are dedicated to doing so with people and planet in mind.”

The reported progress towards sustainability targets include:

  • Bromine and Catalysts businesses are on track to achieve goals to reduce GHG emissions by 35 per cent by 2030, in line with science-based targets
  • Albemarle is restating GHG targets to align with the company’s new global business structure
  • Albemarle introduced a new air quality goal to reduce 90 per cent of sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions by 2027, with a 2022 baseline
  • Albemarle introduced a new scope three target to engage with suppliers to collect 75 per cent by 2023 and 90 per cent by 2024 of the company’s raw material carbon footprint data; setting the foundation for a future scope three reduction target
