Styron* agrees with a consensus of environmental experts that sustainability includes three key elements – economic, environmental and social.
Styron's commitment to each element of sustainability, and Styron's successes as described in this Report, are enabled by a focus on Styron's Core Values, which reflect an underlying quality-driven mindset and emphasis on realizing its vision:
Our vision is to be a world leader in materials that our customers need today and tomorrow. We will deliver extraordinary value for our stakeholders. We will become a remarkable company to work for, buy from and invest in.
* In April 2011, Styron announced plans to change its company name to Trinseo, with global implementation during 2011. In this Report, the company is referred to primarily as Styron since the company was known by that name during the period of time covered by this Report.
