Good Health and Well-Being

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.


Living in good health and promoting well-being for all people of all ages is important for building prosperous societies. However, despite great progress in improving people's health and well-being in recent years, inequalities in access to healthcare persist.
Companies can help by respecting and promoting the health and well-being of their own employees, and by driving medical technology progress globally through products and solutions.

Examples of our contribution

  • We are a strategic partner of companies that manufacture pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements or medical devices. Evonik supports them with customized products, technologies, and services – for both conventional and new therapeutic areas.


  • At Evonik, work, plant, and transport safety consistently take precedence over sales and profits. This holistic approach encompasses employees, work situation, products, operational environment as well as the handling and use of materials.


  • The continuous improvement of health protection for our employees is part of our responsible actions and our commitment to responsible care. This includes medical emergency management in the company, occupational medicine and occupational health protection, workplace health promotion and the support of our employees in personal emergency situations. Health protection and promotion are components of the Group's "well@work" initiative.


  • We measure progress in the field of occupational health using the Occupational Health Performance Index (OHPI), which is calculated from two parameters each of the areas of "occupational medicine", "health promotion" and "emergency medical care". This index is also used for continuous improvement.
