INEOS IS COMMITTED TO ACHIEVING A MORE CIRCULAR ECONOMY, WHERE MATERIALS ARE RE-USED AND RECYCLED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE.
Resource and waste reduction, alongside water conservation are major societal and political challenges that demand a response from industry. Across INEOS our chemical sites aim to reduce material intake and use recycled or renewable materials as feedstock to cut waste and pollution.
We contribute to the transition to a bio-based and circular economy by investing in bio-attributed and circular products that save resources, reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions, whilst creating opportunities for our customers and businesses to meet consumer demands and enter new markets. We also work to improve the recyclability of our products, so they can be recovered and reused, or recycled to the maximum extent possible, reducing landfill, incineration, and lowering the demand for fossil-based raw materials.
This is a particular priority for our businesses that make products that reach end-consumers, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, and PVC. The move to a circular economy will maximise the valuable contribution that such plastics make to society, while minimising their environmental impact.
As we are well on track to meet and exceed the INEOS 2025 pledge, we have set additional targets for 2030: INEOS will incorporate at least 850’000 tonnes of recycled and bio-sourced polymer into its polymer products by 2030.
