Evonik supports United Nations sustainability goals
Evonik products and solutions are contributing significantly toward the attainment of sustainability goals. We have identified four goals as being of particular relevance to the Group.
Evonik products and solutions are contributing significantly toward the attainment of sustainability goals. We have identified four goals as being of particular relevance to the Group.

One of the four sustainable development goals (SDGs) relevant to the Evonik Group is Clean Water and Sanitation. We are continuously working toward decreasing our water consumption and reducing emissions into water bodies. Water is used mainly for cooling purposes, as process water in production, and for steam generation in power plants. As one of several measures to save fresh water, we have set up integrated systems with different grades of water quality. In addition, evaporation from cooling circuits is compensated many times over by condensate or used potable water. The current target, of reducing specific water consumption by 10 percent by the year 2020, will be replaced by a global water management system that over the long term will help avoid water stress for Evonik sites and neighboring areas.   

The three other SDGs relevant to the Group are Sustainable Consumption and Production, Climate Protection Measures, and Health and Wellbeing. We have developed our own methodology for identifying those SDGs relevant to the Group. We continuously monitor our impact and work toward strengthening positive impact and preventing or reducing that which is negative. About 60 percent of the Group’s sales volumes contributes positively to the four Group-relevant SDGs, and about 80 percent to all of the SDGs.  

The SDGs help us refine our sustainability strategy, promote innovation, and identify and exploit new business opportunities. Our goal is to contribute toward ensuring that life on our planet remains worth living, even in the future.  

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), resolved by the United Nations in 2015, are intended to ensure that that by the year 2030 all inhabitants of planet Earth can live with dignity and a measure of prosperity. To achieve this, 17 goals have been formulated to support global sustainability efforts. The SDGs are directed at governments, civil society, and the private sector. Companies in industrialized and developing countries as well as emerging countries are invited to participate in actively mastering urgent developmental challenges through creative and innovative solutions. Companies are encouraged to use the SDGs as a framework for developing and managing their sustainability strategies as well as for sustainability reporting.
