“Sustainability can be defined in many different ways,” said Ron W. Gerrard, Corporate Sustainability Officer. “At Huntsman, we think in terms of the three pillars of sustainability – people, planet and profit. How Huntsman’s five divisions approach this ‘triple bottom line’ is a unique reflection of their individual business drivers and stakeholder concerns. So when we talk about sustainability, the conversation takes many turns. In our 2012 report, we offer the various perspectives from our division presidents, our associates and external stakeholders.”
In its 2012 report, which generally conforms to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) 3.1 guidelines, Huntsman is reporting on 14 metrics, including 10 from the GRI Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Conversations About Sustainability also includes Huntsman’s Communication on Progress to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Huntsman became a signatory to the UNGC in 2011.
