Sustainability is a commitment to our stakeholders and a key part of our continued success. We embrace the responsibility and stay focused and committed to pursue a greener and sustainable future together with our customers. We believe that “Together, we make the difference”.
As a chemical company, we’re proud that many chemical products advance a sustainable world, such as improved food safety and quality, increased energy efficiency of buildings and automobiles, advanced medical treatment and improved availability of clean water.
In 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by world leaders in a historic UN Summit — officially came into force. On March 21st of 2019, each of our 33 sites held a meeting to explain Primavera Day both from the corporate and local perspective, and the various activities each would do to support and promote the SDGs going forward.
“With our first Primavera Day, we want to honor all that we have already done over the course of time in this context, and also set the stage for our future strategic activities and commitments in Sustainability,” says Miguel Mantas, CEO, allnex.
“We want to contribute to a greener world by making circular thinking the core principle of how we do business. We aim to achieve this by designing products with enhanced longevity or intended for multiple uses, increasing recourses’ productivity as well as reducing the use of finite sources.”
From improved recycling to community outreach programs, increased efficiency to responsible consumption, we look forward to sharing with you the details of our sites activities and the improved results. Thank you for letting us share with you our goal to “Paint a Sustainable World”.
