tions and Biomaterials, PolyOne.

tions, PolyOne embraces 5 basic principles towards

: Solutions that are based on, or sup-
por t the use of, renewable, compostable or
: Packaging and other logistics-related
systems that are easily returned or reused.
: Solutions that incorporate post-con-
sumer or post-industrial recycle content or which
lend themselves to recycling.
: Solutions that re-
spond to ever-changing market needs by offering al-
ternatives to traditional materials.
: Solutions that help conserve the
earth's resources such as those that enable more effi-
cient production, reduce part weight or material con-
sumption, enable faster cycle times or lower energy
consumption or provide better insulating properties.
