INEOS puts safety, health and environmental performance top of the agenda at every business team and board meeting. It is a part of our culture that shapes decision making at every level of our organisation. We are committed to delivering continuous improvement across all activities in all locations, and to working with local communities and stakeholders to be a responsible neighbour. Our goal is zero injuries and product spillages, to be achieved through rigorous application of best practices and a positive safety culture in which we believe all accidents are preventable.Learn More

How we are organised
Each INEOS business has its own executive board which is responsible for all functions – Business Management, operations, procurement, IT, HR, communications, banking, legal, tax, etc. Boards are fully accountable for and empowered to manage their business and strategy in its entirety. The INEOS central office function is extremely lean, numbering only around 40 people compared with typically hundreds in organisations of comparable size. The federated structure and minimal hierarchy engenders an agile organisation in which internal communications and decision-making happen fast.
Our first and fundamental priority is safety, health and environmental performance. We are highly focused on growth, EBITDA and top quartile economics. Fixed costs and cash are tightly managed. Our culture is entrepreneurial and defined by a lack of bureaucracy and politics. Being privately owned offers the freedom to take a long-term view, while a simple and decentralised organisational structure enables quick and efficient decision-making. Sports and fitness are integral to the INEOS culture, as are grit, rigour, humility and a real team ethos.
Sustainability is fundamental to how we do business. It is a key driver of innovation in meeting the challenges associated with evolving societal needs. Our approach to sustainability encompasses six key areas: safety; climate; circular economy; people; communities and the natural environment; and governance. Our sustainability strategy is to develop and manufacture the products needed to address the evolving challenges of climate change, public health, resource scarcity, urbanisation and waste, in a way which drives us all towards a net zero emission economy by 2050.Learn More
