Transition to bio-based MPG

Transitioning our raw materials to bio-based sources will enable us to make a significant positive impact through sequestered carbon as well as reducing the GHG emissions associated with these raw materials, in the case of Monopropylene Glycol (MPG), by up to 61%.

MPG is used to dilute multiple products manufactured across our sites. As 2022 has seen more commercially available streams of MPG become available, we have engaged with several suppliers in Europe and North America, working with them to understand pricing, availability and environmental implications of transitioning to bio-based sources. Plans are being put in place to begin a phased transition to bio-MPG starting in 2023.
