Enabling sustainable solutions everywhere

The chemical industry is present everywhere. In fact, 96 percent of all manufactured goods rely on chemical products. That puts us in a prime position to assist other companies and value chains in their sustainable transitions.  

Rooted in our mission

Being a sustainable solutions provider is part of our corporate mission. As the sustainable solutions provider we drive the sustainability transformation in society within the areas we operate.

Our sustainability strategy

We have the opportunity to make a great positive impact; by driving change, transforming our production and enable new solutions that will help industries and products everywhere become more sustainable. We are fully committed to do so and to always act respectfully with regards to people, environment and society.

Our approach to sustainability

We have developed an approach to sustainability based on the three areas Care, Transform and Enable.

Care – Act respectfully in all situations

We are an industry where accidents can have severe consequences and where our business and decisions impact many. Therefor health and safety is a top priority, and acting respectfully and fair with regards to people, environment and society is deeply rooted in our values and how we do business. This is applied by working with health & safety, responsible sourcing, ethical business practices, product stewardship and equality.

Transform - Reducing our own environmental impact

The chemical industry has a large environmental footprint and therefor transforming our industry will have a great impact. It is our responsibility and a prerequisite for long-term survival. We are setting ambitious goals and working to reduce our footprint when it comes to raw materials, energy, CO2, waste, water, scarce metals/minerals and (Eco) Toxic environment.

Enable - Providing solutions for sustainable transition everywhere

Our products are used by and needed for the transition of most other industries and end products. This gives us the opportunity to drive change within the entire global value chains, by enabling new sustainable solutions. Examples of how this is accomplished is our expanding Pro-Environment product portfolio reducing CO2 emissions and shifting to sustainable materials, but also by the sustainability contribution that our products enable like e.g. longer durability, recyclability and substitution of toxic substances.
