Sustainability Strategy


Science that powers sustainability

As the global population continues to grow at a rapid pace, placing greater pressure on resources, the need for forward-thinking sustainable solutions becomes increasingly critical. At Syensqo, it’s our aim to bring clean and natural solutions to our customers – to support the planet and help them advance their environmental ambitions. Already, more than 80% of our innovation pipeline is focused on creating sustainable solutions.

Our top-line growth will be increasingly driven by circularity. We’ve built partnerships to help enable the circular economy and are working hard to ensure products can have a second, third, and even fourth life.

Reducing our impact on the environment, however, requires a holistic view of sustainability - one that looks both at our customers’ carbon footprint and our own.

That’s why, as a company, we’re on track to become carbon neutral by 2040. Globally, 65% of our sites are powered solely by renewable electricity, and China has become the first of our markets where every site uses 100% renewable energy.

Our sustainability commitments

We’re committed to making the world a better place, investing in and driving sustainable growth. To help ensure our ambitions turn into actions, our commitments are centered around the three areas where we believe we can have the biggest positive impact: Climate and Nature, Sustainable Growth, and Better Life.

Through these pillars we’re focusing on how we can improve circumstances for individuals, as well as care for the environment. 


In the future, we aspire to roll out our living wage commitment throughout the entire value chain. This incudes assessing the practices of our suppliers and urging them to uphold similar standards and introduce fair wages for their employees.

Sustainability is not just an ethical obligation; it is also a strategic advantage, as it aligns with the evolving values of our customers and partners. That’s why we are reinventing circular chemistry.
