Progressive climate change, feeding the growing world population, and using limited resources responsibly are some of the global challenges addressed by the United Nations’ sustainable development goals. Our products and solutions provide important answers to future-oriented questions like these.
Research & Development
We are proud of our culture of innovation. For high innovative capability is essential for us. It is an important driver for profitable growth and strengthens our leading market and technology positions.
Circular economy means decoupling economic growth and the use of resources by returning valuable raw materials to the loop at the end of their useful life.
Supply Chain & Raw Materials
We have a significant influence on society and the environment through its procurement volume. We are aware of this responsibility. By selecting suppliers carefully, we do not simply secure and increase their sustainability standards, we also enhance the quality of the entire value chain.
Evonik believes that key technologies like biotechnology and nanotechnology are essential to find solutions for pressing future challenges.
One of the most important requirements placed on the chemical industry by its stakeholders is that all substances and products are produced, handled and used not only in conformity with the law but also under safe conditions.
Production & Processes
Many of our products are based on the use of advanced processes and technologies, which we are continuously improving. At many of our sites, we have backwardly integrated production complexes where we produce key precursors in adjacent production facilities.
We need toxicological and ecotoxicological data to be able to assess the safety of our products. From a scientific perspective, tests on animals are still in many cases the only way of generating this data reliably.
