Our sustainability activities are underpinned by our membership in two global initiatives: Responsible Care® (the chemical-industry initiative) and the UN’s Global Compact. Through these voluntary commitments, WACKER seeks to protect the environment, employees and society above and beyond legal requirements.
With its voluntary Responsible Care® initiative, the chemistry industry is committed to doing more than the law requires. In practical terms, this means promoting sustainable development, practicing product stewardship, ensuring occupational and process safety and continuously improving environmental performance.
In April 2006, WACKER’s Executive Board sent a letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan confirming the WACKER Group’s participation in the Global Compact. This worldwide initiative seeks to boost collaborations between the United Nations, business and social organizations. A key joint goal of Global Compact participants is to steer globalization toward improving the quality of peoples’ lives all around the world.Key Issues
