CHT Publishes Group Sustainability Report 2022


CHT’s Sustainability Report 2022, which is now digitally available, provides insights into the past fiscal year and summarizes key ecological, economic, and social developments. The report shows that the CHT Group has defined and anchored sustainability as an integral part of its corporate strategy.


The CHT Group consistently aligns its sustainability strategy to all three ESG dimensions. Climate protection occupies a central position worldwide – the corporate carbon footprint (Scope 1-3) 2022 totals 475 kt CO2(e). The group of companies is pursuing the goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2045.

At the end of 2021, the CHT Group subscribed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to meet the targets of the Paris  Climate Agreement and committed to the 1.5°C target. Meanwhile, 77 % of sales were achieved with sustainably classified products.

The issue of sustainability has been anchored in the DNA of the internationally active foundation-owned group of companies for 70 years. No less an aspiration is derived from this than to support all customers with the most innovative, most sustainable products and solutions and thus to become the leading supplier of sustainable chemical products and solutions in all target markets.

The current edition of CHT’s annual sustainability report for the period January to December 2022 is now available in website format. The report is based on the GRI standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Since 2015, the CHT Group has been using comprehensive sustainability reporting to document its ongoing successful transformation into a sustainable business group that is ideally prepared for the challenges of the EU Green Deal and mandatory ESG reporting.

In the implementation of the sustainability strategy of the CHT Group, the field of action “climate neutrality” takes a central role. The CHT Group has set itself the goal of being climate neutral both in its own production and in the supply chain from the year 2045. The path to climate neutrality by 2045 is illustrated in the report as part of the strategic goal.
