Additionally, we continue to be a strong contributor to our local economies through taxes paid and 3rd party spending of over $4 billion.
We understand the challenges we face while building a brighter future for our people and planet. This begins with establishing an integrated, holistic framework within the INEOS business to reduce our environmental footprint. This entails analyzing every aspect of our operations to drive efficiencies that improve the use of energy, promote more recycling and reuse, and create more sustainable products. We must strive to achieve all this while keeping our employees safe, the environment clean and while delivering more stakeholder value to the community. That is our commitment at INEOS.
While we've made progress, we've got more work to do. And, we're ready for it.
