Leadership Perspective

Sam SmolikSustainability builds value

Sustainable development principles are integral to the way we do business at LyondellBasell and hold the key to our long term success.  Therefore, we are committed to the highest levels of governance, safety and environmental stewardship.

As a signatory to the Responsible Care® Global Charter of the International Council of Chemistry Associations, we have established robust systems and control measures. Our extensive LyondellBasell Operational Excellence Management System provides a strong governance framework for all of our operations across the company.

The products we provide enhance quality of life across society, and also fulfill the highest standards of product safety throughout their lifecycle.

Safeguarding and building positive relations with the neighboring communities of our plants is important for all LyondellBasell employees. Indeed, remaining competitive in the world of petrochemicals is not possible without talented and dedicated people who share our company's vision and values, and of whom we are justifiably proud.

At LyondellBasell, we take pride in the progress that we have made towards continuous improvement and industry leading performance in key areas which underpin sustainability: personal safety, process safety, health care, product stewardship, environmental impact reductions and resource efficiency. However, with our ambitious Goal Zero target of no accidents or incidents, we recognize that we must remain diligent at all times and there is still much work ahead for all of us at LyondellBasell.  

Sustainability is an important driver of our Amazing Chemistry Program; and we invite you to learn more about our efforts and sustainability commitment. If you have questions, please contact us.
