Ecovyst Inc. (NYSE: ECVT) (“Ecovyst” or the “Company”) today announced the release of its 2022 Sustainability Report, “Cultivating Change: Sustainable Innovations for a Greener Future.” This report features 2022 data, including HSES, greenhouse gas emissions, energy, water, and waste results. It further reflects the progress we have made toward achieving the goals established in Ecovyst’s inaugural Sustainability report from 2021, released in June 2022.
“The value we add for customers creating sustainable solutions has inspired our focus on continual advancement in sustainable product development. In 2022, about 83% of our R&D investment was dedicated to products linked to sustainability, keeping us on track to achieve our goal of 90% of R&D innovation linked to sustainability by 2025. At the same time, we strengthened our business practices during 2022 through investments to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, improve our health and safety practices, and foster career development opportunities and inclusion for our employees,” commented Kurt J. Bitting, Ecovyst’s Chief Executive Officer.
“We are committed to supporting cleaner fuels and sustainable technologies that help save energy, protect clean air, conserve water, and reduce waste.” Bitting continued, “Our Catalyst Technologies business develops innovative catalyst supports, functionalized materials, and catalysts to facilitate the production of bio and sustainable fuels and enable more efficient plastics circularity value chains, while our Ecoservices business contributes to the circular economy through its focus on beneficial reuse of spent sulfuric acid, destruction of waste, and power generation.”
