Diversey Unveils New Sustainability Strategy and 2025 Goals

December 7, 2018


Diversey published its Annual Sustainability Report, which includes a new “Facilitators for Life” strategy and goals aimed at creating a healthier and safer world for everyone. The new approach will help ensure Diversey addresses key environmental, social and technological opportunities, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, engaging in ethical business practices and decreasing its packaging footprint by 2025.

To create the new sustainability strategy, Diversey reviewed its current footprint, listened to customers, engaged experts and studied frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs highlight 17 areas where organizations like Diversey will collaborate to solve global challenges.

“Although it’s been given many names since 1923, sustainability has always been at the core of Diversey,” said Daniel Daggett, Executive Director, Sustainability and CSR, Diversey. “As Facilitators for Life, we must identify ways to care for the environment as well as the people we employ, partner with and serve every day. We’ve committed to twelve new sustainability goals for Diversey and look forward to executing this strategy to drive progress in the coming years. The goals not only engage all Diversey employees, but will stimulate collaboration with our suppliers and customers to improve environmental stewardship and social responsibility.”

  • Improve the Environment
  1. Reduce energy intensity in operations by 10 percent
