Chemours, a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Titanium Technologies, Thermal & Specialized Solutions, and Advanced Performance Materials, was honored with two awards from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings, Better Plants initiative, which recognizes partners for outstanding accomplishments in energy efficiency, decarbonization, water efficiency, or waste reduction projects or practices. This is the second year that Chemours has been recognized with both Better Project and Better Practice awards.

“Partners in the Better Climate Challenge are industry leaders in energy efficiency and decarbonization. As a winner of both a Better Project and Better Practice award, The Chemours Company has demonstrated an innovative pathway to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions that other organizations can learn from,” said Carolyn Snyder, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Buildings and Industry at the U.S. Department of Energy.

Better Practice Awards are presented to partners for innovative and industry-leading accomplishments in implementing and promoting practices, principles, and procedures of energy management.

Chemours received a Better Practice Award for launching an internal bonus metric based on implementing sustained energy efficiency projects which, in the first year of implementation, reduced energy intensity by 3.5% company-wide. The new program improved energy efficiency across fourteen sites through process improvements, small capital projects, and control strategies.

“We are immensely proud to be recognized by our partners at the Department of Energy. These awards reflect the exceptional efforts our teams have put into enhancing energy efficiency and reducing waste at our manufacturing sites,” said Dr. Amber Wellman, Chemours’ Chief Sustainability Officer. “As a science-based company, sustainability is core to everything we do—be it in our sustainable product offerings or our commitment to produce essential chemistries responsibly. These awards serve not just as a recognition of our success, but also as an inspiration for us to continue pushing forward in achieving our ambitious sustainability goals.”
