PCC SE and all subsidiaries of the PCC Group are committed to ethical and sustainable conduct in all their business activities.
All of our actions are based on the principles defined by the global Responsible Care® initiative. The initiative embodies the chemical industry’s endeavour to provide for continuous improvements in the areas of health and safety and the protection of the environment – beyond the legal requirements.
At PCC, we aspire to a corporate culture in which continuous improvement, sustainable competitiveness, and operational excellence are aligned with the ethical standards.
PCC assumes the ethical responsibility for ensuring that its business dealings are in conformity with sustainable, economically sound, eco-friendly and fair practices.
Our group’s social responsibility is an integral part of our corporate philosophy.
All PCC employees undergo training to enable them to assume their share of the corresponding responsibility, in accordance with their roles, level of authorisation and qualifications.
Our sustainability strategy is implemented in the individual PCC subsidiaries within our Group’s segments; namely our five Chemicals segments, as well as the Logistics, Energy, and Holding/Projects segments.
