What is Integrated Reporting? 

It is not just about publishing an annual report: it is about "Integrated Thinking" and aligning sustainability with corporate strategy. It brings together material information about our organization's strategy, governance and financial performance in the CSR context within which we operate. 

Going further in our integrated management journey

Solvay’s 2017 Annual Integrated Report gives an account of the progress we made last year in transforming ourselves into an advanced materials and specialty chemicals company. We are committed to sustainable and long-term value creation.

Our Annual Integrated Report is based on the framework established by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and reflects how we integrate sustainability into the management of our businesses, creating value for our customers and many other stakeholders.

Creating sustainable value is more than a responsibility; it is also an opportunity.
