INEOS doesn’t believe in half measures. ‘That’ll do’ just won’t do. The company believes that individuals can excel when challenged and great teams can achieve extraordinary results.
So it's hardly surprising that it is also drawn to other kindred spirits with grit, determination and the clear focus that INEOS tries to inspire across the company.
Over the years INEOS has donated Millions of Euros and Dollars to help develop a healthy interest in sport, particularly among the young. And it’s in any sport. Ice hockey. Football. Rugby. Running. And in virtually every country close to the sites where it does business.
“INEOS revolutionised our club,” Sacha Weibel, Chief Executive Officer of Lausanne Hockey Club, told INCH magazine.
More recently, though, INEOS' focus has turned to elite athletes. Those, who despite excelling at what they do, still have the hunger, desire and belief that anything is possible.
“No one should ever tell INEOS that something cannot be done,” said John Mayock.
INEOS is now supporting Britain’s bid to win sailing’s most coveted trophy for the first time in its 168-year history.
Through the INEOS 1:59 Challenge, it is supporting Eliud Kipchoge on his journey to become the first person to ever run a marathon in under two hours.
And it is also the proud owner of Lausanne-Sport, one of Switzerland’s most established football clubs.
INEOS Chairman and founder Sir Jim Ratcliffe, of course, is passionate about sport. He runs marathons, cycles and has trekked to both the North and South Poles. He understands what drives men and women to push the boundaries of what is deemed humanly possible. He understands what it takes to be a winner, like Team INEOS rider Egan Bernal – the 22-year-old Columbian who won this year’s Tour de France.
