Sustainability at Brenntag
As the market leader in the chemicals distribution market and because of its central position in the chemical industry’s value chain, Brenntag is aware of its responsibility in the field of sustainability. At Brenntag, sustainability is essential to the way we operate. The issues of safety, health and environmental protection (HSE) are deeply embedded in our corporate culture, as cornerstones of our responsibility to our employees, customers and suppliers and also to the communities we operate in. Our goal is the continuous global development of our sustainability strategy, thus harmonizing economics with ecology and social issues as part of our business activities.
Our activities focus on sustainability issues associated with Brenntag’s day-today business and its portfolio of services: safety, efficient use of resources, supply chain responsibility, compliance and how we interact with our employees and with society at large. We aim to continuously improve on our performance in these areas. For this purpose, we have also drawn up initial sustainability targets as benchmarks for us to evaluate our progress.
In order to ensure transparency on our sustainability performance and activities, Brenntag takes the standards of the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) as a basis.
