      Welcome to the City of Sustainnovation.

      The need for sustainable innovation has captured the attention of the coatings industry that is changing fast in response to a changing world. As cities continue to grow rapidly around the world, we need a vision of how to turn this growth into the sustainable, future-proof reality that we call the City of Sustainnovation.

      A sustainable future is within reach. Why not?

      Our vision for the City of Sustainnovation is about to come true. We already have the innovative chemical building blocks for a brighter future and, as part of the chemical industry, have the resources and know-how to contribute to a more sustainable world. What’s missing is collaboration – and action. Together with our customers and suppliers, we have what it takes to make it happen.

      The impact chemistry can have on people’s lives is immense because so many products we see, touch, wear, drive and own are affected by chemical innovations. That is why producing more sustainable solutions is so important in realizing a brighter future. The City of Sustainnovation symbolizes what we believe is possible – in four districts you can explore: How can we shape the streets of tomorrow together? How can we build a better city to live and work in? How you can join us on our journey to live the difference? How can we create future wear for a fitter and healthier life?

      Streets of tomorrow

      As the pace of urbanization accelerates, mobility becomes a critical factor on the streets of tomorrow – both in the business environment and for urbanites travelling on foot, by e-bike, car, bus or train.

      What do we mean by Sustainnovation?

      A future where innovation has to be sustainnable to ensure the continuation and development of all our industries. Call it profitable responsibility, or conscious growth. One thing is certain, we believe in a future where sustainnovation has a very important role to play. A belief that is backed up by our vision, our knowledge, our innovations and our products.

      Beneath the surface of the City of Sustainnovation

      Every exhibit in the City of Sustainnovation has been enhanced by high-performing polymers and chemical solutions. Our portfolio offers innovative chemical raw materials derived from renewable resources to ensure more sustainability over the entire lifecycle of products. These materials already present viable options for future mobility, interiors, footwear, construction, packaging, textiles, and healthcare. The City of Sustainnovation will enable you to experience the many ways in which we are minimizing the environmental footprint of our products over their entire lifecycle – with sustainable solutions that also deliver high performance. But to harness their potential for many more applications, we need you.

      Relive what you might have missed at European Coatings Show 2019 in Nuremberg. At the Covestro booth we showcased the need for sustainable innovation which has captured the attention of the coatings industry. Various exhibits served as a proof point to show that we already have the innovative chemical building blocks for a brighter future.
