Sustainability and Environmental Protection

All our investment projects are pursued using modern, environmentally friendly and thus energy-efficient and economically sound technologies. For us, conserving the environment takes top priority, side by side with ensuring the health and safety of our employees.

A holistic approach to sustainability

Sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate philosophy, with equal weighting being given to its economic, ecological and social aspects. We do not see any contradiction between these criteria, viewing them instead as integral and as mutually beneficial components of value-enhancing growth.

PCC SE and all companies of the PCC Group are committed to adopting an ethical and sustainable approach in their business activities. Our actions are governed entirely by the principles of the Global Responsible Care® initiative. This serves to promote the efforts of the chemicals industry in continuously improving occupational health and safety, public health and safety, and environmental protection, irrespective of prevailing legal requirements.

PCC has adopted a corporate culture in which continuous improvement, sustainable competitiveness and outperformance are reconciled with recognized ethical standards. PCC accepts ethical responsibility for ensuring the adoption and pursuit of sustainable, ecologically sound, economically efficient and fair business practice.

Our Group-wide commitment to social responsibility constitutes an integral component of our corporate philosophy. All employees of the PCC Group are trained in accordance with their function, level of authority and qualifications to properly discharge their responsibilities in all such matters.

PCC SE continuously analyses all areas and activities that may give rise to impairment of the environment and the inefficient utilization of resources, including the following:

  • Raw material consumption related to product manufactured
  • Handling and transportation of hazardous substances
  • Energy consumption and water usage
  • Wastewater contamination
  • Emission of air pollutants
  • Waste for disposal
  • Noise
  • Hazardous sites and soil contamination
  • Accidents and incidents
  • Potential environmental aspects arising from planned activities

PCC also gives careful consideration to information or complaints from all stakeholders, particularly local residents.
