Covestro, formerly Bayer MaterialScience, has received a Supplier Award 2015 from Henkel Adhesive Technologies. The Henkel business unit annually recognizes strategic partners that delivered superior service with regard to general supplier performance, innovation and sustainability to underline the importance of close collaboration. Covestro was awarded in the category “Supplier Sustainability” in recognition of its long years of involvement in the sustainable Henkel product pipeline and for outstanding contributions to lifecycle analysis.
