Kemira has joined the Renewable Carbon Initiative (RCI) to partner with leading companies and accelerate the industry shift from fossil carbon to renewable carbon and raw materials.
Becoming a member of the RCI demonstrates Kemira’s commitment to advancing innovative sustainability practices with a focus on promoting circularity and a bio-based economy.
RCI champions the transition from fossil carbon to renewable carbon for all organic chemicals and materials. The relevant sources of renewable carbon include biomass, CO2 and recycling.
Sampo Lahtinen, SVP of Growth Accelerator says: “In order to fight climate change, we need to curb our consumption of fossil resources. Collaboration with this unique network of experts and like-minded companies in the sustainable chemical industry supports Kemira’s long-term sustainability targets. We are gradually increasing our biobased and renewable product offering and thus reducing our own environmental impact. In turn, we also encourage our upstream value chain partners to lower the carbon footprint of products. Through partnerships and direct actions we can help our customers achieve their sustainability goals.”
The Renewable Carbon Initiative (RCI), founded in September 2020, is a group of more than 50 pioneering companies from the entire chemical value chain from raw material to end-of-life.
