Evonik’s corporate responsibility strategy
We are convinced that sustainable development and corporate responsibility are vital for the future viability of Evonik. We therefore accept responsibility worldwide, especially for our business, our employees and society. Our CR strategy takes up the megatrends identified in our corporate strategy and supplements them with ecological and societal challenges. Evonik aims to make a substantial contribution to sustainable development by developing new products and business models. At the same time, we want to strengthen our market positions.
We drove forward our CR strategy in 2012 by intensively addressing the expectations of internal and external stakeholders. Since we are a supplier to many other industrial companies, the ecological footprint of our products is a key issue for our stakeholders, especially our customers. Our customers expect our products, services and technologies to help them achieve their sustainability targets. That applies to both the raw materials we use and production processes. Alliances along the value chain play a significant role in that.
We are convinced that assuming corporate responsibility is one of the prerequisites for success in the long run. Evonik advocates Corporate Responsibility and implements caring programs in Greater China Region.
