Our company's response to COVID-19

Each day we are presented with new challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic. As we learn more from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), European Centers for Disease Control (ECDC) and other health authorities about this virus and how it is spread, we are making decisions to help protect our LyondellBasell family and the communities where we operate in every way we can.

It’s times like these when it’s important to express our gratitude. Thank you to our workforce and all the healthcare professionals, first responders, grocery store workers and many more who are fighting this pandemic and helping to ensure our health and wellbeing. We appreciate everything you are doing.

We will get through this together.




The health and safety of our global workforce remains at the forefront of everything we do as it relates to our response to the COVID-19 pandemic on multiple fronts. 

We have taken precautionary measures at our sites that we believe are in the best interests of our employees and business operations. As the virus continues to spread, it is important we all act to protect ourselves and others.

There is a reason governments have designated our sector as "critical infrastructure" during this time.  LyondellBasell produces materials that are used in end-products such as medical devices, protective equipment, cleaning products, and various pharmaceutical applications.

A huge thank you goes out to our LyondellBasell team members who are not only keeping themselves healthy and safe, but also are keeping our plants running safely and reliably. It’s because of them that we are able to continue supplying many vital products that power the industries supporting healthcare, hygiene and medicine.
