This Sustainability Report marks a renewal of Albemarle's sustainability journey forward. The report references the latest version of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards which ensures relevant and transparent disclosures, and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards that help disclose material, decision-useful information to investors.

Charting our course for a more sustainable future continued throughout the year. Albemarle set sustainability targets for GHG emissions and freshwater use, launched a climate strategy that aligns with our customers' sustainability goals, and aligned ourselves with global standards signed UN Global Compact. These key highlights are reflected in the Sustainability Report Summary 2020.
