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.

Future wear, future care

Workplace, home and health: decisive factors for the quality of life in the City of Sustainnovation. Innovative chemistry is already having a positive impact on what we do outside our working hours

Building a better city

We believe cities can look forward to a better and brighter future if industrial, commercial and residential buildings and the accompanying infrastructure are constructed on the basis of innovative chemistry and sustainable raw materials.

Living the difference

What will life be like in the City of Sustainnovation? Will the interiors of flats and houses be nicer to live in? Will the furniture and floors look good, feel good and be more sustainable?

Beneath the surface

Every exhibit in the City of Sustainnovation has been enhanced by high-performing polymers and chemical solutions. At the ECS 2019, we are showcasing our portfolio of 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.

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The UN SDGs promote peace, are a commitment to fight poverty, inequality and climate change, and are at the heart of the Covestro strategy. As a world leader in high-tech polymers, we are helping to overcome the global challenges addressed in the UN SDGs. Covestro contributes to the UN SDGs through our product portfolio and ambitious sustainability targets. Learn more by clicking on the UN SDG icons.
