Polyurethanes Contribute to Sustainability 

Polyurethanes are one of today’s most versatile materials. Polyurethane manufacturers produce innovative, life-enhancing products and technologies that play a unique role in making the world a more sustainable place and can help solve some of our world’s biggest challenges. By helping natural resources and materials last longer, polyurethanes play an important role in promoting sustainability, reducing waste, and achieving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The industry is putting the power of polyurethanes to work in order to unlock solutions to society’s biggest challenges in a safe and sustainable way. Importantly, most polyurethane products and product components are durable and long-lasting – often lasting for the life of the product, without replacement. For example, rigid polyurethane used to insulate refrigerators last the lifetime of the refrigerator and flexible polyurethane in automotive seating lasts the life of the car.

American Chemistry Council

The American Chemistry Council’s mission is to advocate for the people, policy, and products of chemistry that make the United States the global leader in innovation and manufacturing. To achieve this, we: Champion science-based policy solutions across all levels of government; Drive continuous performance improvement to protect employees and communities through Responsible Care®; Foster the development of sustainability practices throughout ACC member companies; and Communicate authentically with communities about challenges and solutions for a safer, healthier and more sustainable way of life. Our vision is a world made better by chemistry, where people live happier, healthier, and more prosperous lives, safely and sustainably—for generations to come.
