The world is changing rapidly and enormous challenges lie ahead of us. Covestro helps in tackling these challenges through technologies and products that benefit society and reduce the impact on the environment. Being curious, courageous and colorful, the company strives to make the world a brighter place.
Climate change, resource scarcity, increasing mobility, urbanization, changing demographics - fundamental global trends like these may seem insurmountable, but these trends don’t have to be daunting.
Covestro prefers to look for the opportunities they represent. In short, these challenges will become the signpost to the future because they will guide the way the company and its people act in tomorrow’s world - how the business is developed and how it will innovate - advances that have been a feature of Covestro’s history.
A simple, yet bold vision
This route to the future cannot happen without a simple yet bold, overarching vision: Covestro wants to make the world a brighter place. The company will fulfil this vision through its mission of inspiring innovation and driving growth through profitable, leading technologies and products that benefit society and reduce impact on the environment. It exists to create material solutions that push the boundaries of what is possible.
Values which inspire innovation
During this journey, Covestro will be guided by three values which represent the way its people think and behave:
The company is proud of its past but it doesn’t stop there.
Its people are always seeking to do better, so curiosity drives them to listen to customers and suppliers and respond with creative and unexpected solutions. They are open to new ideas and hungry for progress. Curiosity is the engine that drives the business forward.
Covestro looks to the future and sees opportunities where others see limitations.
Where others ask ‘why?’ the reply is ‘why not?’ Courage permeates the entire business, from partnerships to business models. It can be done because the company stands on a platform of knowledge and experience that gives it the courage to push the boundaries of innovation.
In a corporate world which can be dull or uninspiring, Covestro values different viewpoints and diverse ideas.
It is optimistic and resourceful and uses every color in its palette to create solutions and solve problems in innovative ways. This value is also reflected in a colorful visual identity which reflects optimism and symbolizes dedication to innovation and the rainbow of opportunities which lays ahead - a vision of the world as a brighter place.
