MO-PL-05: Keynote by Stefan Haver, Head of the Corporate Responsibility Division at the Essen-based specialty chemicals, Evonik Industries AG
Sustainability at the core of the chemical industry’s business model.
In recent years the view on sustainability has fundamentally changed. What once had been a matter of corporate social responsibility and regulatory compliance exclusively has long turned into a solid growth driver at any stages of daily business life.
This transformation has been driven by four powerful factors:
1. Growing awareness of sustainability issues in (capital) markets, politics and the wider public
2. Improved measurability and transparency of ecological, social and economic impacts of sustainability
3. Ongoing integration of sustainability criteria into portfolio steering and management systems
4. Close collaboration and best practice sharing in expert circles and on a growing number of industry platforms
The presentation shows how sustainability has systematically moved from the fringes to the very core of the chemical industry’s business model and how Evonik triggers new markets, that could turn out to be the biggest industrial revolution we’ve had in a 250 years.
