Sustainability

Improving the sustainability of our business and operations is central to the way we work. It is of critical importance to our employees, to our partners and customers, to  the communities in which we operate, and to our investors. It drives innovation across all our businesses and sites.

TACKLING GLOBAL CHALLENGES

Our products already make an indispensable contribution to society by providing the most sustainable options for a wide range of societal needs. For example, preservation of food and clean water; construction of wind turbines, solar panels and other renewable technologies; for construction of lighter and more fuel-efficient vehicles and aircraft; for medical devices and applications; for clothing and apparel; and for insulation and other industrial and home applications. If polymers and plastics were to be replaced to the maximum extent in applications where they can be substituted, overall life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Europe would increase by more than 50%.

Following the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015, most nation states have set the goal to achieve a net zero emission economy by 2050, and are adopting regulations and legislation to support this. As part of this, there is widespread acceptance that we should strive for a circular economy, in which materials are re-used to their maximum extent. In response, INEOS businesses have put in place the plans and actions needed to ensure that they lead the transition to a net zero economy by no later than 2050, whilst remaining profitable, and staying ahead of evolving regulations and legislation.
