De Standaard recognized the transformation of the Group, whose main customers now include companies like Boeing and Apple. “Clamadieu has put a profound transformation on track, away from the classic ‘old’ chemistry to new market niches," cited the jury explaining why Jean-Pierre was selected.  "And then there’s Solvay Cares, whereby the company guarantees minimum social security worldwide for all employees.”

The jury also noted, “Financially Solvay had a good ride last year. The stock rose 16 percent, which is double the chemical index.” The biggest score, however, was for financial transparency. “Solvay’s communication belongs to the best of the Bel20 members.”
