Sustainability is firmly embedded in our strategy and organization and is integrated into our core processes. Sustainability management supports our strategic principle “We drive sustainable solutions,” helping us to put our company’s purpose – “We create chemistry for a sustainable future” – into practice.
- Sustainability management supports our corporate purpose: “We create chemistry for a sustainable future”
- Strategic responsibilities: minimizing risks, taking advantage of business opportunities and establishing strong relationships with stakeholders
We define sustainability as the balance between economic success, social responsibility and environmental protection. Our sustainability management has three strategic responsibilities: Minimizing risks, taking advantage of business opportunities and establishing strong relationships with our internal and external stakeholders. We minimize risks by identifying relevant issues early on and through operational excellence in our business processes. We take advantage of business opportunities by helping our customers offer innovative and sustainable solutions. We engage in ongoing open dialog with our stakeholders from, for example, business, society and politics.
