Welcome to our sustainable polymers collection

Synthetic polymer materials are one of the most important inventions of modern times, but they also have a significant environmental impact. In this collection we discover the diverse ways that our partners are seeking to minimise this impact, while retaining the beneficial material properties that have made polymers an integral part of our lives.
