LANXESS ’s guiding principles are essentially shaped by a sense of corporate responsibility (CR). The company’s objective is sustainable, forward-looking development which meets the demands of economics, ecology and society in equal measure – in short: sustainable development. Accordingly, this aspect is firmly anchored in LANXESS ’s organization, which requires all our employees to act responsibly when dealing with people, the environment and capital. In practice, this means that we always apply our high sustainable management standards when making entrepreneurial decisions.
“Good for business, good for society.” This short sentence perfectly sums up our approach to business. It stands for the firm conviction that the greatest incentives for and benefits of corporate responsibility are achieved if they are balanced with entrepreneurial and, especially, economic objectives. All LANXESS ’s CR activities must therefore be linked to the company’s core business or to its available expertise.
