Act as a transformation agent to optimise and transform the cycle of resources to answer the planetary issue of resource scarcity

Solvay is convinced of the need to move rapidly from a linear economy- which is exceedingly wasteful- to a circular economy, to ensure our planet retains its regenerative resource cycles.

The chemical industry supplies many other industries, and chemical science is a powerful building block which enables material transformation.

The Groups intention is to position itself, and its chemistry, as a transformation agent which contributes towards solving societal issues, by designing new and innovative solutions that help customers achieve their sustainability goals. In doing so, the organisation wants to develop new manufacturing processes and use renewable energy and materials that align with the principles of the circular economy.

Through this partnership, Solvay wants to establish a circular economy culture, which sees new partnerships forged, and shared innovation which optimises and transforms resource cycles.

Focus Areas

  • Culture & Capabilities: Leverage internal mindset and strengthen the company's collaborative innovation competences, to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
  • Business Solutions: Boost concrete business projects to foster solutions meeting circular economy requirements.

Solvay is part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Make Fashion Circular initiative, which works to create a textiles economy fit for the 21st century.
