According to Renato Cesquini, Chemours Commercial Manager in Latin America for the Thermal & Specialized Solutions business, this recognition highlights the quality of Chemours products and service.

Chemours in the Brazilian automotive sector
Supplying refrigerant fluids to automotive manufacturers in Brazil has allowed Chemours to establish a large presence in the country’s automotive sector, and today, many of the vehicles manufactured in Brazil use Chemours refrigerants in their air conditioning systems.
That commitment to supplying high-quality refrigerants for mobile air conditioning systems extends to Chemours work to help make a better world through responsible chemistry. The company established its 10 goals to achieve by 2030 as part of its Corporate Responsibility Commitment. The goals, which are mapped to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), include having sustainable product offerings, such as the Opteon™ portfolio, that meet market needs and comply with environmental regulations.
According to Cesquini, Chemours is a Honda partner in several countries, including Latin America, and today it supplies Opteon™ YF (R-1234yf) a refrigerant that has a low global warming potential (GWP) and zero ozone-depletion potential (ODP). The use of Opteon™ YF demonstrates both companies are in alignment with the United Nations’ commitment to sustainable development.
