Solvay makes it to European Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Solvay announces that it has been listed as a member of the European Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI Europe). DJSI is the front-ranking, non-financial global index of the most efficient companies in the area of social and environmental responsibility.

Every year, DJSI monitors the sustainable development performance of the world's 2,500 most highly capitalized companies through a questionnaire focused on a particular industrial sector. Only the 10 percent most efficient companies are listed.

For the chemical industry, 86 companies have been assessed and 23 listed in the different zone indices of the DJSI (Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific). Solvay is now member of the European Zone index. Solvay's performance was particularly recognized by the DJSI for its environmental policy and management system, its product stewardship as well as its innovation management.

"At Solvay, sustainable development is not only fundamental responsibility but also a large part of our vision and strategy.  For us, the Group's inclusion in this highly selective index means a powerful recognition of our commitment that involves the day-to-day efforts of all of the Group's employees. It also gives us a great impetus to move forward," said Jacques Khéliff, Sustainable Development Director at Solvay.

With sustainability at the core of its growth strategy, Solvay has created the Solvay Way, an ambitious sustainable development policy coupled with a progress measurement tool.

The five main goals are: to offer a safe and healthy working environment; to generate a growing proportion of our sales in markets or in activities that meet the requirements of sustainable development; to relentlessly improve our technologies, processes and products to limit their environmental impact; to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, the use of energy and water and conserve natural resources; and to develop and maintain a rich, balanced and open dialogue. The Solvay Way influences the way we do business.

Solvay is also a signatory of the Principles of the U.N. Global Compact, which it completes each year the advanced level of reporting.
