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.
