Supporting sustainability

The transition to a carbon neutral future requires a radical social transformation, including in how chemistry is applied. Through our four Growth Platforms, we are supporting a more circular future, investing in renewable materials and biotechnology, battery materials, green hydrogen, and thermoplastics composites.

We’re committed to addressing the biggest challenges facing global societies, from pollution to resource scarcity and overpopulation – in a sustainable way. Our Growth Platforms are designed to help accelerate the path to a sustainable future, providing breakthroughs that open new frontiers for the planet and its people.

Investing in the future

Through our venture capital arm Syensqo Ventures, we invest in early-stage startups that create sustainable advanced materials with the potential to make a positive difference.

We invest in startups globally, across four areas that not only match our expertise and reflect key global business trends but also progress our own sustainability goals. Our portfolio team is focused on new technologies in areas including cleantech, healthtech and biotech.
