Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) is at the heart of everything we do at Solvay. The challenges created by Covid-19 clearly demonstrate why Solvay’s core operations and our approach to ESG under our Solvay One Planet program are critical to the world’s wellbeing. Chemistry is essential. Working closely with our suppliers and customers, we are reinventing progress by enabling sustainable solutions, aligned with global trends, that will help fight climate change, preserve resources and enhance quality of life. Today, using our Sustainable Portfolio Management (SPM tool), 52% of our solutions – more than €5bn of our sales – have higher growth potential thanks to their strong sustainability credentials.
