Evonik’s strategic development focuses on a sustained increase in the company’s value. To achieve that, we set ambitious targets for finance, safety and the environment. Our environmental targets are valuable guidance for a continuous improvement in our performance in protecting the climate and our environment. We aim to achieve our targets by 2020. They apply for the period 2013 to 2020. Any deviations from the goals are specifically indicated.

As a responsible specialty chemicals company, we have also defined ambitious non-financial targets. We take our responsibility in the field of safety particularly seriously. Our objective is to protect our employees and local residents as well as the environment from any potential negative impact of our activities. Accordingly, we set annual limits for occupational safety and plant safety indicators. For 2016 these are once again:
1 Number of accidents involving Evonik employees and contractors’ employees under Evonik’s direct supervision per 1 million working hours.2 This indicator comprises incidents resulting in the release of substances, fire or explosion, even if there is little or no damage.3 Number of incidents per 1 million hours worked in the production facilities operated by the segments, taking 2008 as the reference base (expressed in percentage points: 2008 = 100).
