Quadrant’s Commitment to Sustainability: ECO Grade Performance Plastics

One of the most critical challenges facing the global business community is sustainability. At Quadrant, we recognize and support innovation that drives energy and resource efficiency; reduces emissions; develops a more sustainable infrastructure; and, ultimately, encourages job creation. With each product we develop, Quadrant strives to reduce the use of energy, water, and materials, creating solutions that build successful, profitable business for our customers, coworkers, and environment.

screen-shot-2016-11-03-at-12-49-05-pmSustainability is of the utmost importance because Quadrant supports the idea of KAITEKI—a concept led by our parent company, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group (MCHG). KAITEKI represents “a sustainable condition which is comfortable for people, society and the Earth, transcending time and generations.” Japanese for “comfort,” KAITEKI defines the long-term direction of MCHG, aiming to balance three core management dimensions: economics, technology, and sustainability. The approach of both Quadrant and MCHG is to develop sustainable systems that solve business, environmental, and social issues in coexistence with the planet.

Quadrant’s ECO (recyclable) grades of performance plastics are just one example of our commitment to sustainability and KAITEKI. As the leading global manufacturer of high-performance thermoplastic materials, we believe that the best way to encourage the development of environmentally friendly materials (manufactured in an environmentally responsible manner) is to lead by example.

TIVAR® ECO UHMW-PE

recycledplastic-img_4194TIVAR® ECO is partially composed of reprocessed PE-UHMW material and has an overall lower property level than virgin TIVAR® 1000.
