Johnson Matthey is a global leader in the production of specialty chemicals and technologies that confer environmental, energy efficiency, and health benefits to its customers. Approximately 90% of total sales are derived from products with sustainability benefits. For example, the company’s catalyst products enable chemical reactions to be carried out under milder conditions, reducing the amount of energy and toxic chemicals required. Johnson Matthey’s emissions control catalyst systems are fitted to roughly one-third of all cars produced around the world, reducing harmful nitrous oxide and particulate matter from vehicle emissions. Other chemical catalysts are used in the production of clean fuels and the conversion of bio-based renewables into energy.
Johnson Matthey continues to capitalize on business opportunities driven by climate change by developing products that help its clients respond to more stringent environmental and emissions regulations. In 2007, Johnson Matthey created a Sustainability 2017 framework to reduce the company’s direct environmental impacts and drive ongoing product sustainability improvements. Its goals include halving its carbon output and key resource consumption per unit output, sending zero waste to landfill, and doubling earnings per share. Johnson Matthey is on track to achieve most of these performance targets and we will continue to monitor its progress.
