We view sustainability as a triad consisting of economy, ecology, and corporate social responsibility. These three dimensions are inextricably intertwined. As a result, we create value for our customers, employees, shareholder, and society as a whole. At the same time, we always take account of the interests of our stakeholders, as the following examples show.

The 2016 fiscal year was an extraordinarily successful one for ALTANA. In a challenging market environment, we were able to increase our sales and earnings and, at the same time, we paved the way for further profitable growth. Our solid financial position enables us to support the implementation of our strategy with the required investments.

We want to be leading in everything we do. This particularly concerns our innovative products, which conserve resources and protect the climate. We help our customers manufacture with low emissions and energy-efficiently. Furthermore, we help them enhance the safety of their products, for example with our PVC-free and thus plasticizer-free sealing materials for crown corks.

ALTANA relies on a uniform safety culture. Technical and organizational measures as well as training programs contribute to enhancing work safety and anchoring the issue firmly in our employees’ minds. Our top priority is to reduce the number of accidents. We are constantly working on minimizing hazards and improving the protection of our employees’ health.

Environmentally friendly management is a key component of ALTANA’s corporate strategy. Our goal is to steadily reduce the energy consumption at all sites and in all areas. We also implement this objective in other environmentally relevant areas, such as waste and the consumption of drinking water.

Our employees are our most important resource. Therefore, ALTANA promotes their professional development, prepares them for positions of leadership, and enables its staff to participate in the company’s success to motivate them to stay with the company on a long-term basis. We put particular emphasis on recruitment of young talent, specialists, and managers.

As a good corporate citizen, ALTANA supports and sponsors social projects focusing on education, science, and research. To strengthen our local environments and to be a good neighbor, we especially promote initiatives near our sites in Germany and abroad.
