A Shared Responsibility

At H.B. Fuller, we’re passionate about sustainability, and we believe that we each have a shared responsibility to take care of our planet. That’s why we work with our customers in a collective effort to create adhesive solutions that allow them to meet their sustainability goals.

Because adhesives are a part of nearly every finished good in the marketplace, we understand that we must thoughtfully consider the environmental impact of our products on the communities where we live and work. In addition to supporting our customers’ sustainability goals, we are working to minimize the impact of our operations. A large part of our commitment focuses on reducing energy usage, water usage, effluents and solid waste, all of which are considerations as we continue to build new facilities across the globe.

Our Adhesive Solutions

Adhesives don’t just hold things together, they connect what matters – to our customers, our customers’ customers and consumers around the globe. They make things better, faster, lighter, smarter, smaller, greener, cleaner, softer, thinner, tougher, stronger and safer. More important, adhesives address some of the biggest challenges facing the world, including access to clean drinking water, food insecurity, climate change, education and more. H.B. Fuller adhesive solutions are helping to make the world a better place.

Adhesive solutions can play a big role in terms of environmental impact, including saving energy, reducing waste, and improving indoor air quality. They also enable lightweight packaging and certain consumer goods, like energy-efficient light bulbs, to function under harsh conditions.

Committed to Sustainability

At H.B. Fuller, we believe being responsible, respectful and smart about how we use the planet’s resources while also creating value for our customers is the right way to do business. It’s a commitment we celebrate with the world in April, but also thoughtfully consider every day throughout the year.
