Kraton is committed to safe and socially responsible operations. Therefore, we continuously work to improve our products and processes with the goal of reducing our own emissions and customers’ environmental footprint. To achieve this, we developed a materiality assessment of our sustainability impacts and opportunities in the value chain focusing on environmental, social and governance (ESG) assessments of our operations. These focus areas will guide our sustainability efforts and initiatives as we continue to make a positive difference to our customers, in our jobs and to the world.


Material topics are those that are relevant to our business and our stakeholders. We incorporated internal and external inputs through interviews with customers, employees and other stakeholders. The material topics listed are either impacts that Kraton can have on stakeholders and the environment; or risks and opportunities that can  impact Kraton and our long-term value creation.
