Welcome to Lubrizol. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our mission to help the world Move Cleaner, Create Smarter and Live Better in our 2020 Corporate Report. Our science touches billions of people every day, and our commitment to improve lives has never been more critical.
The last 10 years marked the most successful decade, by most any measure, in Lubrizol’s nine-decade history. We reached new highs in both revenue and income. Our global capabilities expanded dramatically, and we continued to leverage science in ways only Lubrizol can, creating value for our customers and consumers. This was also a period where we embedded sustainability even more deeply into everything we do.
In the decade ahead, one where we’ll celebrate our centennial (in 2028), we’ll have an even greater impact. We have established bold goals to reduce vehicle emissions, enable circularity, and improve lives for billions of consumers. We have invested billions of dollars in innovation across these areas over the past decade alone, and we are planning to invest more in the decade ahead.
We enter this new decade with great partners who share our vision for a better world and a more sustainable future. We are very fortunate to count some of the world’s most respected and admired companies as our customers and partners, and we are very thankful for the relationship and for their loyalty.
Most importantly, we enter the new decade fortunate to have an incredible group of talented and committed employees. I am inspired every day by our team. Their energy, commitment and passion will continue to drive us forward and allow us to be an even greater positive force in the world.
Thank you for your interest in The Lubrizol Corporation.
Eric R. Schnur, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
