Our commitment to sustainability
Sustainability is our lever for growth and will enable us to tap into new and emerging business models. We are committed to enabling a circular economy for styrenics, further improving our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable operations throughout our entire value chain.
Our sustainability focus
INEOS Styrolution intends to operate and develop its business in a way that balances our current and future needs, taking into account economic, environmental and social factors so that we can sustain and further grow our business in the long term.
Styrenics are one of the most versatile materials in the 21st century, and have revolutionised the way we live today. Our products have become an indispensable part of consumers’ everyday lives and provide solutions to societal challenges such as climate change, resource scarcity, urbanisation, rising living standards and population growth: such as extending food shelf life, thereby reducing food waste while also providing lightweight solutions leading to lower fuel consumption. Some of our plastic products have become even more indispensable in the fight against COVID-19. Our styrenics materials are being used to produce safety equipment such as safety goggles and face shields as well as medical devices such as COVID-19 detection kits, intubation devices, infusion sets and blood pressure monitors.
Here is a selection of our achievements that demonstrate our sustainability performance in our key focus areas.
