Environment

We work to advance solutions to global challenges.

At LyondellBasell we strive to limit our impact to the environment. We are granted our license to operate from multiple regulatory authorities that oversee our facilities and we seek to earn the trust of communities by operating safely and responsibly.

Our environmental management system standard, part of our Operational Excellence system, provides a mechanism for compliance assurance and continuous improvement. This extends not only to our employees, but also our contractors  and suppliers.

We constantly monitor and manage environmental risk and comply with all regulations and permits. We aim to operate efficiently which means using valuable resources responsibly, producing less waste and generating fewer emissions.

Because our business is dynamic and subject to change based on production volumes, feedstocks and other business factors, our energy, emissions, water and waste metrics are reported in absolute (total) and intensity (rate per ton of product) terms to more clearly reflect our performance.
