TRANSFORMATIONAL IMPACT FOR THE GOOD OF GENERATIONS

Our strategy

Our sustainability strategy is inspired by our purpose: Pioneers at heart for the good of generations.  With our pioneering spirit, our knowledge, our products and technologies, we want to enrich and improve the lives of billions of people every day – and shape a viable future for the next generations. 

Sustainability is thus a central element in our vision of the future. We want to actively drive the transformation to a sustainable economy and society, help protect and regenerate nature, contribute to strong communities and strengthen the trust of our stakeholders.

With our 2030+ Sustainability Ambition Framework, we have developed new long-term ambitions in the three dimensions of Regenerative Planet, Thriving Communities and Trusted Partner to drive further progress.

We are living and working in ever changing times. Our mission to tackle environmental, social and political challenges has never been clearer.

We need to drive transformational impact for the good of generations.
 

Regenerative Planet

We are on a journey toward an environmental transformation of our business model. To achieve this ambition, we intend to transform our processes, products and use of raw materials in the direction of a resource-efficient, carbon-neutral future. We are focusing on climate change mitigation measures, a functional circular economy and the protection of nature and biodiversity.

Thriving Communities

We will help people live better lives. Our social responsibility is to promote equal opportunity, strengthen diversity and respect human rights. We offer our employees lifelong learning opportunities and an attractive and healthy working environment. We advocate for social progress and access to education worldwide and we provide assistance in emergency situations.

Trusted Partner

We draw on our value-oriented corporate culture and our scientific and technological expertise to strengthen our performance while maintaining our integrity. We deliver safe and best-in-class product and technology solutions to our customers and consumers.
