Environmental responsibility

As LANXESS sees it, conserving natural resources – for example, through the most efficient possible use of raw materials and energies – and identifying further potential for reducing emissions and waste are an ongoing mission and an inherent part of our ecological responsibility to which we must apply our expertise. While taking account of local requirements, we equip all new production sites with state-of-the-art technology that is also in line with environmental standards.

Responsible use of water resources

Access to clean water is not only crucial to the health and nutrition of a constantly growing world population, it is also an important economic factor. This is why the various facets of the issue of water are also illustrated in detail in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals. Focal points here are wastewater reduction, water efficiency and water management. Careful use of this scarce resource is therefore securing our future – particularly at sites in water-stressed areas. In these areas, there are problems with water availability, quality and/or access.

Sustainable waste management

The company aims to employ a consistent material flow management process – from the use of raw materials to the manufacture of the final product – so as to deploy resources as efficiently as possible and minimize the amount of waste we produce. Where it is impossible to prevent waste, we try to use or sell it as secondary raw materials or energy sources. In order to minimize the amount of waste requiring disposal, we make various efforts to continuously improve the yields achieved in our production processes.
