Every time we use our Ashland Signature, we endorse our promise to our stakeholders. Our symbol is an embodiment of our passionate, tenacious  and solving character in which the “molecules” reinforce our ability to rethink and remake chemistry. Inspired by the mathematical symbol  for “therefore” our symbol’s “tilt” says that we are always in motion- always solving™. The harmonious blue, green teal and warm grey colors in our signature set a distinctive tone and connote earth, sky and water –  giving a nod to our more sustainable future.
