Impact Valuation

At Evonik we deal with the effects of our own business activities. For this purpose we regularly measure and analyze the direct and indirect impacts of our business activities from an economic, ecological and social perspective.

This analysis is designed to supplement established internal strategic business analyses. Early identification of future opportunities and risks makes our business model more resilient.

We pay particular attention to macroeconomic contributions and the ecological and social impact of our business activities in the regions.

The impact analysis (Impact Valuation) provides an insight into:

  • the scale of the ecological, social, and macroeconomic impact of our corporate activities
  • the benefits to society as a whole
  • the key levers to reduce unwanted impacts and maximize desirable impacts along our value chain

Base of the impact valuation is an input-outcome-impact model which takes into account the input of resources and the measurable outcomes of a coporate activity. The resulting impacts are measured and evaluated along the value chain.
