The INEOS Compass

A beginner’s guide to the INEOS Compass

Still a relatively young company, INEOS has grown upwards and outwards quickly - and continues to.

In just 25 years, we’ve become one of the largest chemical companies in the world, and expanded from our original core chemicals business into oil and gas, automotive manufacture, fashion, sport and beyond.

Throughout the journey, one thing has held fast: INEOS’ unique culture. This culture is, like any, impossible to precisely define- but it guides everything we do and underwrites our success. It is our core DNA.

The INEOS Compass was devised by Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe as a fun way of attempting to capture how INEOS works, and why. Below is a brief guide to some, but not all, of the terms.
