At Solvay, we believe that what is beneficial for business must also be beneficial for our planet as well, it is interconnected. As responsible chemists, our contribution to society must not only boost performance, but must also demonstrate a lower environmental impact from the production phase and throughout the entire life cycle of our products. This includes the end-of-life and recycling processes as well. We have developed a unique tool, the Sustainable Portfolio Management, to steer Solvay's portfolio toward sustainable business. The idea of this tool is to guide business decision-making with sustainability constantly in mind. We are also exploring the potential of a circular economy to preserve the resources of the planet. As the chemical partner of the Ellen MacArthur foundation we are re-thinking and developing business models to help solve many pressing environmental and societal challenges such as the scarcity of resources or sustainable mobility for example. When handled responsibly, innovative chemistry holds the sustainable solutions for future generations.
