Sustainability Management

Sustainability Management

Brenntag aims to achieve continual performance improvements in the key areas of sustainability. With this goal in mind, we implement, establish and optimize relevant standards and processes, raise our employees’ awareness accordingly and provide them with further training. In this way, we intend to shape our sustainability strategy at a global level and to develop it further.

In 2011, Brenntag established an international team which successfully pursues the systematic development of sustainability at Brenntag. The Board of Management and regional top management support the activities of this sustainability committee. In addition, Brenntag Group’s Corporate Development department now has a sustainability coordinator who manages and promotes global projects and initiatives and who maintains a dialogue with those line managers at Group level and in Brenntag’s regions.
