Solvay One Planet, an initiative crafted around three pillars: protecting the climate, preserving resources and fostering better life
Founded in 1863, Solvay is a science company whose technologies deliver benefits to many aspects of daily life. The company continues walking in Ernest Solvay’s footsteps and the group ranks among the world’s top three companies for the vast majority of its activities.
The group’s innovative solutions contribute to safer, cleaner and more sustainable products found in homes, food and consumer goods, planes, cars, batteries, smart devices, health care applications, water and air purification systems.
In a world facing an ever-growing population and quest for resources, the company aims to be the driving force triggering the next breakthroughs to enable humanity to advance while protecting the planet we all share.
Structured around the three major categories of climate, resources and better life, Solvay One Planet is a roadmap towards a sustainable future that provides shared value for all. “We accelerated our efforts to meet our stakeholders’ growing expectations: we focused on protecting the most vulnerable during the pandemic; set more ambitious environmental targets; built partnerships to enable the circular economy; and worked to ensure that sustainable solutions represent a growing proportion of our sales”, the company says.
Solvay believes that finding solutions to humanity’s biggest challenges requires scientific breakthroughs that protect our heritage for generations to come. Today, they are using their expertise to help solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Solvay One Planet turns this ambition into concrete actions. It ensures that the efforts are focused on the areas where innovation and sustainable solutions can have the biggest positive impact, directly and indirectly, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Underpinned by the Purpose and G.R.O.W. strategy, its sustainability agenda is brought to life by a set of clearly defined programs and actions. These are organized around ten key goals and put into practice through a set of concrete actions and projects, including carbon neutrality before 2050.
