Sustainable product innovation

We know that product innovation and sustainability go hand in hand. We assess the everyday impact of our products in two ways: intrinsic, referring to attributes such as renewable raw material content or “cradle-to-gate” carbon footprint; and extrinsic, which refers to the social, environmental and financial impacts our products have in use or as they biodegrade at the end of their life.
