Our Approach to a More Sustainable World

For LyondellBasell, sustainability means advancing solutions to address global challenges while meeting our stakeholders’ needs and the highest operational standards. Our commitment to society and the environment is embedded in our company vision to be the best operated and most valued company in our industry, today and tomorrow.

We have a relentless focus on the safety of our people, products, operations and the environment. We strive for zero incidents and seek ways to improve energy efficiency and reduce resource use. We maintain comprehensive programs designed to protect the health and safety of our people, prevent process safety incidents and carefully steward our products.

We believe plastic waste should not enter our rivers and oceans, and we are investing in technologies and collaborating with industry partners to find solutions.

Our business is dependent on the trust of the communities in which we operate. We are committed to being a responsible, good neighbor and contribute to philanthropic causes across the globe.

We believe that through collaboration with our employees, customers, suppliers, community stakeholders, investors and shareholders we can make a positive contribution toward a more sustainable world.

In 2018, we advanced our sustainability efforts in three key focus areas: sustainable and circular products, plastic waste in the environment and climate change.
