Sustainability 2017

JM Alfa Sustainability image Alfa Aesar, a Johnson Matthey company, is a global business focused on its core skills in fine chemicals, precious metals and materials. It is our strategy to grow our business through investment in people, technology, and processes concerned with protecting the environment and through the responsible management of the very valuable materials with which we work.

Throughout Johnson Matthey we are committed to the principles of sustainable development and strive for outstanding resource efficiency and carbon neutrality. Going forward, we aim to further develop and enhance sustainability as a core competence and key driver of competitiveness for our business. We aim to encourage our suppliers and customers to adopt the values of sustainability which we uphold.

For the benefit of our shareholders, our employees and for society as a whole, we aim to more than double our earnings per share while achieving zero waste and halving the key resources that we consume per unit output by 2017, the year of Johnson Matthey's 200th anniversary, to create a business that will continue to grow and prosper in its third century.
