SDG 17

Partnership for the Goals

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.


In order to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations by 2030, the committed cooperation of all political and social forces is required.

The achievement of the SDGs far exceeds the capabilities of individual actors. As a specialty chemicals company, Evonik is at the center of numerous value chains and thus assumes the role of an "enabler" that enables its customers to develop new products and solutions to achieve their goals. Therefore, we are aware of the special importance and creative potential that lies in strategic partnerships and close cooperation with customers, suppliers, science and industry initiatives.

Examples of our contibution

  • Future-oriented solutions often arise through the interaction of different skills and abilities in dialogue. That's why we, as a company, regularly seek dialogue with our stakeholders in different formats. We want to better understand other perspectives, identify forward-looking trends and developments at an early stage and integrate them into business processes.


  • Together with Siemens Energy, we are researching and testing innovative hydrogen technology in an industrial environment at our site in Herne. Green electricity is to be used to produce green hydrogen, which is an important raw material for wind turbine rotor blades.


  • We use our cooperation with EnBW to show how we obtain green electricity from wind turbines for our sites and thus at the same time contribute to the expansion of renewable energies.


  • We are collaborating with BMW on the Future Sustainable Car Materials consortium project. Together, we have the goal of closing plastic cycles and thus contributing to the circular economy.


  • Portfolio transformations for our clients and for us can only succeed on the basis of a cooperative partnership. Together with Beiersdorf and on their way to more sustainable personal care products, we show how we tackle challenges together and develop viable solutions.
