Our sustainability strategy takes up the megatrends identified in our corporate strategy and supplements them with ecological and societal challenges.
The Executive Board bears overall responsibility for sustainability at Evonik and direct responsibility is assigned to the Chief Human Resources Officer. The issues derived from the sustainability strategy are implemented through goals set for the business units and specialist departments. Steering committees use specific performance indicators to manage the attainment of these goals at specialist, regional and project level. The strategy is mainly developed and monitored in the Corporate Center. Where relevant, the management uses the specialist knowledge of expert networks to translate sustainability-related issues into concrete areas of action. As part of Evonik’s ongoing strategic development, in summer 2014 the Executive Board decided to establish a separate Sustainability/Corporate Responsibility Division reporting to the Chief Human Resources Officer. Responsibility for climate-change topics is also anchored at Executive Board level.
