As preconditions for Evonik’s future viability, sustainable business activities and responsible conduct are cornerstones of our business model. We drive forward our sustainability activities along the value chain in close dialogue with our stakeholders. As well as our own production processes and the products we market, we always consider the supply chain and the product benefits for our customers and their customers. We have observed rising demand for products that demonstrate a good balance of economic, ecological, and social factors. That opens up a broad spectrum of future-oriented business opportunities for Evonik in attractive markets. Sustainability has long been a growth driver in many of our business.
In view of this, we defined our sustainability strategy in more detail in 2018, especially as regards foresighted resource management and integrating sustainability into strategic management processes.
