FROM THE MINUTES 2018

In 2017, 49% of Solvay's revenue came from sustainable products and services. This achievement is all the more impressive considering that it had projected hitting a target of only 50% of its sales coming from responsible solutions by 2025. The results show that sustainable practices are a good way to generate profits. Their experts believe that a successful integration of the circular economy depends on considering the different perspectives of stakeholders, and on collaboration between them.


The sustainable solutions proposed by Solvay provide a 5% faster growth rate than so-called neutral solutions, which include product-application combinations not influenced by sustainable development practices. Conversely, solutions such as manufacturing using child labour in developing countries, which are in sharp contrast to consumer expectations of sustainability and responsibility, account for 8% of revenues and a 3% drop in profits.


Solvay’s Sustainable Portfolio Management methodology allows it to categorize all its products and services according to two factors:

1. The environmental footprint of their production process

2. The environmental impact (positive or negative) of their products on the planet, from a market perspective


"Doing good for the planet is good for the business - It makes money." - Bruno Jestin
