Closing the Loop on Plastic Waste

Climate change, population growth, unsustainable lifestyles – surmounting global challenges like these require embracing the circular economy as a guiding light. At Covestro, our goal is to embed circular economic principles into the fabric of our operations and be a trailblazer for the entire plastics industry. A globally leading high-tech polymer manufacturer, Covestro has set a vision to be fully circular. A core component of achieving that vision is focused on joint solutions and collaborations with entities that share a similar goal for a more sustainable future. From innovative mattress collection initiatives to advanced and chemical recycling solutions, Covestro and its collaborators work to set the foundation for a new way of working. Closing the loop on a sustainable future is best done by preparing the next generation workforce with the skills needed to approach manufacturing with an eye on circularity, leading to collaborations with top-tier universities like the University of Pittsburgh, where the Covestro Circular Economy Program is launching.
