Clearly formulated policies define our business activities

Policies and Commitments

Sustainability is at the center of all our thoughts and actions. It encompasses everything from the behavior of every single employee and how projects are carried out, to safety, compliance and business conduct, and even how we interact with interest groups and assume responsibility for products and processes along the entire value chain.

All of our business activities are geared to sustainability, because we acknowledge our obligation to prudently manage our environment and act responsibly toward those around us. Covestro works closely with a variety of interest groups and adheres to strict regulations and principles that are firmly anchored in its Group regulations.

Our six corporate policies:

Sustainability Brochure

To support our vision, mission and values, we have developed six corporate policies which are our basic principles, forming the foundation we need to fulfill our vision and mission. These six principles are summarized in our Policy Booklet:

  • Value creation
  • Sustainability
  • Innovation
  • How values translate into performance and culture (people)
  • Health, safety, environment, quality (HSEQ)
  • Compliance

The concept of sustainability is thus firmly anchored in our corporate principles.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct:

It is elementary for us not only to act and produce sustainably ourselves, but also to ensure that suppliers comply with our standards at all times. Covestro therefore has established a Supplier Code of Conduct that is the fundamental basis for our collaboration with them. Covestro expects its suppliers to respect and implement its policies.
