8 Innovating for a Sustainable Future What is Sustainability? For Croda its simple, doing business sustainably means doing business the right way. The right way by our people, the environment, the communities we work within and those organisations we work with. Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. (Brundtland Report) Our commitment We recognise that it is not just about our products, how they are made or how they are used, but also the impact of everything we do on the economy, environment and society.

9 Innovating for a Sustainable Future Embedding Sustainability At Croda CSR is all Our Responsibility and is at the heart of Our Vision, which states that: all functions and individuals are valued; leaders will have as their primary objective to build other leaders; we will achieve our goals through excellent and constant communication and setting clear objectives; continually improve; and continue to be an ethical and responsible company. We feel that through our emphasis on emerging markets and technologies, we are making our own small contribution, going beyond not compromising and actually enhancing the capabilities of future generations.
