The Foundation of Success
Value creation from the short to the long term depends on a combination of financial and non-financial, tangible and intangible assets. The value a company creates for its customers, shareholders, and other stakeholders has to be attuned to their needs and provide valuable differentiation compared to the competition.
Clariant’s success is measured by its ability to provide innovative and sustainable solutions that support its customers’ goals, and to operate with efficiency and integrity.

Clariant’s ambition to create sustainable value is guided by its vision, mission, and corporate values, which are underpinned by its corporate objectives, targets, and strategy. Its corporate governance principles, strong leadership culture, and compensation principles also support sustainable value creation.
