Horizon 2025 Targets

Setting our strategic direction

In 2019, Huntsman rolled out Horizon 2025 targets with a robust plan for making Huntsman an even safer, more sustainable and more successful company.

The Horizon 2025 strategy articulates our company-wide direction for environment, health and safety, and is a crucial part of Huntsman’s growth and expansion into more downstream businesses and operations.

The strategy is aligned with the global Responsible Care® initiative and includes an ambitious set of specific, company-wide targets for Huntsman to achieve by the year 2025. Progress made to-date is denoted in green within each target.
