Our Environmental Approach

Designing For the Long Term

We work to advance solutions to global challenges.

LyondellBasell operates responsibly in each of the communities where we are located. Guided by our HSES Policy and internal standards of Operational Excellence, we take care to minimize our resource consumption and production of waste and emissions at each of our locations.

In addition, we make numerous products that aid in the conservation of natural resources. For example our new polymer grades used for lighter weight automotive components, reducing fuel usage help to save energy.

Similarly, our polymers used for food packaging are lightweight and help preserve the food. LyondellBasell products are also used extensively in energy-efficient applications, such as solar cells, heat insulating roofing and wind turbines.

Operational Efficiency

LyondellBasell's plants are designed to ensure the best performance possible, and we strive to advance those possibilities each year by improving our operational efficiency. Many of our manufacturing sites use co-generation facilities to be more energy-efficient.

Energy Conservation

We believe in conserving energy and efficiency and preventing the loss of valuable resources wherever possible.

Waste products, when applicable, are used to fuel our processes, thereby producing energy while reducing waste disposal requirements. In addition, we audit major production facilities throughout their lifespan to identify more way to potentially save energy.

Improving our environmental footprint is part of our long term approach to advance the possibilities of what we do. Recently, we have invested significantly in upgrading our facilities, and as a result, many plants have made considerable performance improvements.
