Sustainability value of chemical companies

I've posted before about the sustainability value of certain chemicals based on their lifecycle analysis - from raw material sourcing to product use/disposal. One recent report about that is a study initiated by the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) last year. This study analyzed the life cycle carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions of over 100 individual chemical products and their applications.

This time, a study published in December from Sustainable Value Research Ltd. assesses the sustainability performance of 9 major chemical companies -- BASF, Bayer, Dow Chemical, DSM, AkzoNobel, Air Liquide, DuPont, Reliance Industries and Shell Chemicals -- using their Sustainable Value approach over the period of 2004 to 2007.
