Our path to more Sustainability
Brenntag is the global market leader in chemical and ingredients distribution and has a central role in the chemical industry’s value chain. This role offers huge potential for Brenntag but also entails an obligation to contribute towards greater sustainability in the industry. We are aware of our responsibilities towards the environment and society that come with our business activities and market position, and we aim to achieve sustainable value creation.
For many years now, sustainability issues such as safety, environmental protection and supply chain responsibility have been deeply embedded within our company.
They determine how we interact with our employees, suppliers, customers and society in general, and have a direct influence on our commercial success.
Our goal is the continuous global development of our sustainability strategy.
"Sustainability is a fundamental part of our corporate strategy and a constant business driver and an integral part of Brenntag's corporate culture."
