Developing Tools for Sustainable Product Portfolio Management

The report Developing Tools for Sustainable Product Portfolio Management builds upon the learnings of the Sustainability@Clariant Portfolio Value Program, developed and implemented in partnership by Clariant and CSCP. Launched in 2012, the program is aimed at enabling sustainable innovation and the realization of sustainable value at Clariant.

By featuring the Sustainability@Clariant Portfolio Value Program as a case, this publication showcases in seven sections important steps to take to systematically integrate sustainability into the development of a product portfolio: understanding sustainability trends and divers, addressing product sustainability by building sound sustainability evidence, screening the portfolio, acting on screening results, driving improvement and innovation, ensuring credibility and learning from experience by exchanging with partners and stakeholders. It is addressed to all actors, naturally not only applying to the Specialty Chemicals Industry.
