As a 2011 signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), we support the UNGC's Ten Principles – which cover human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption – as well as the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We work to align our corporate policies, procedures and guidance documents with the Ten Principles, which we see as complementary to our own business values and goals, and strive to incorporate the SDGs in our product planning to progress Huntsman's contribution to a more sustainable society.
The United Nations has a sustainable development agenda for 2030 that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets supporting those goals. We believe the chemical industry has a key role to play in progressing the SDGs and creating solutions for a sustainable future.
Our commitment to enrich lives and help create a sustainable future, while doing no harm to people or the environment, is well aligned with CDP’s vision and mission "to see a thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term." With hundreds of investors and trillions of assets represented, we recognize the strong desire from the investor community for companies to disclose through CDP.
In 2019, we participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project. While we previously responded to CDP’s Supply Chain questionnaire at the request of customers, 2019 marked Huntsman’s first response to CDP’s comprehensive climate change questionnaire, which has evolved to align with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.

We continue to explore ways to better meet the increasing demands of our investor community for comparable, consistent and quantifiable environmental, social and governance (ESG) information, and we will continue to look for ways to elevate our sustainability reporting to better meet the needs of our stakeholders.View Huntsman’s CDP Response
