ALTANA stands for sustainable profitable growth. In 2015, we had our various sustainability achievements audited by EcoVadis for the first time and introduced so-called expert platforms that heighten the exchange of knowledge across our divisions. Meanwhile, the environmental management systems we have launched, the ALTANA Excellence program, and research investments in future technologies continued to promote our growth.

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, for example with sustainable thermal energy that heats up reaction containers for production and other processes. We also implement this objective in other environmentally relevant areas, such as waste.
