Sustainable Strategy

Sustainable Development Strategy

To us, sustainable development is a way of doing business that considers the needs of all stakeholders, now and in the future. This is the path that we have chosen to keep us moving forward in our purpose: to improve people’s lives by creating sustainable solutions in chemistry and plastics.

We constantly strive to think and act sustainably in all our business activities, from operational and management processes to services, investments, relationships and products.

To support this work dynamic, we have a Global Sustainable Development Policy, which guides on an integrated basis the strategic planning of Braskem’s various areas by establishing priorities in relevant topics in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In this context of major global challenges, which include issues such as water, climate change, sustainable production and consumption, we see ourselves as part of the solution, for which we focus on expanding the positive impacts caused by Braskem’s activities while controlling and/or mitigating the negative impacts.

The pillars of our strategy consist of three major work fronts:

  • Increasingly sustainable operations

  • Increasingly sustainable product portfolio

  • Solutions for a more sustainable life

Braskem’s Sustainable Development Macro Goals

Braskem’s sustainable development macro goals are targets for 2020 aligned with our strategy and with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These challenges were defined based on a structured consulting process that took into account the vision of Braskem’s stakeholders of sustainability topics of material importance to the company, i.e., the most relevant sustainability topics associated with our activities.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our sustainable development strategy has been contributing to progress in the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015, a process in which Braskem actively participates as a member of the committee of the Global Compact Local Network in Brazil.

Although Braskem supports progress in all SDGs, its contributions are concentrated in the following goals:

To us, bluevision means taking responsibility for a sustainable future and acting in accordance with this commitment. Braskem has its bluevision and wants to inspire people to adopt new ways of interacting with the world in which we live. To support this vision, we created a global platform with content on sustainability. The proposition is to leverage people’s capacity to achieve and to foster debate and innovative ideas and technologies that help to transform the world.
