At Trinseo, we take a top-down governance approach to sustainability.
It’s built into our Executive Leadership Team (ELT) through our Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO), Francesca Reverberi, and supported throughout our business units with the Sustainability Business and Services (SBS) unit, which was established in 2021.
The SBS unit drives the Company’s sustainability roadmap, and as part of this, they are strategically implementing decarbonization efforts. The team is directly responsible for oversight of each of Trinseo’s five primary Sustainability Goal categories — Product Portfolio, Suppliers, Climate Change, Responsible Operations, and Sustainable Workforce.
Members of the SBS unit are developing strategic sustainability plans for four key areas: climate, operations, and suppliers; sustainable business development; sustainable feedstock business; and environmental, social, and governance.
Under the leadership of the CSO, the SBS unit has a direct line to the ELT and the Board that enables the team and their Councils to coordinate with the corporate and business units on strategic direction, investment opportunities, and communications.
"The realignment of our governance structure showcases the advancements Trinseo has made in placing sustainability at the center of its mission. Our leadership has placed a priority on the Company’s Sustainability Goals and our acceleration is a clear example of our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint."Walter van het Hof, Global Industry Affairs, Public Policy & Sustainability Reporting Leader
