Guiding Products Through Their Lifecycle

Product stewardship is a cornerstone of our sustainability effort. It stimulates innovation within Momentive to improve the way we meet society’s needs with products and processes that are environmentally suitable and that perform better. It is a way of thinking and acting responsibly that permeates every aspect of our culture and behavior as a company.


We are committed to understanding the total lifecycle impact of our products and technologies and to supporting scientific research and product safety. We help to educate every part of the supply chain—from our suppliers to our end users—about the safe and proper use and disposal of our products.


We are invested in the industries we serve. For more than 20 years we have participated in scientific research to improve health and environmental safety. We are a leader in the development of industry standards and test methodologies. We are an active participant in scientific forums. And we initiate hands-on educational efforts with our customers and communities.
