WACKER has always seen itself as a company focused on sustainability. Our great strengths are our closed production loops. We reuse byproducts as starting materials for other products, reducing our energy and material consumption.

The importance of sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate codes as one of five goals.

We are guided by the ten principles of the United Nations’ Global Compact and the chemical industry’s Responsible Care® sustainability initiative. This forms the basis of all our actions worldwide.

This annual report shows what we understand by sustainability. How we live by it day by day. How we learn from one another within the company to improve ourselves. And what our goals are.

WACKER is convinced that sustainability is a strategic success factor and a competitive advantage. For us, sustainability means striking a balance between economic, environmental and social factors in everything we do. A task that we undertake day after day, so that we can improve ourselves step by step.
