We adapted fast, with dedication and agility

ESSENTIAL AND STRONGER 

Facing an unprecedented crisis, Solvay demonstrated that it is essential to customers, employees, and local communities and is emerging stronger. Our fully digital Integrated Report shows how we brought our Purpose - to bond people, ideas and elements - to life in 2020. We advanced our G.R.O.W. strategy by accelerating our transformation into one more efficient and agile Group. We also delivered on - and even stepped up - our sustainability commitments. We showed our resilience by achieving strong financial performance throughout the year, while answering customers’ pressing needs and supporting our people and communities through the Covid crisis.

BONDING FOR A BETTER LIFE 

Our commitment to responsible capitalism

Thank you - Solvay Solidarity Fund

Solvay is proud of the legacy of its founder Ernest Solvay who was one of the first corporate leaders to implement what we call today Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), placing a strong emphasis on responsible capitalism and the well-being of employees. In 2020, our commitment to providing a better life and managing our people with purpose, mind and heart was in the spotlight through our Solvay Solidarity Fund, our Citizen Day initiative, and actions to care for employees and communities during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
