Specialty chemicals distributor Azelis announced the release of its first sustainability report. The report covers Azelis’ 2019 group-wide sustainability performance and demonstrates how its commitments to sustainability are put into action, by creating shared value with innovative and sustainable products and having a positive impact on the communities around the globe. Soon after initial commitments to Responsible Care® and Responsible Distribution®, Azelis laid the groundwork for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program in 2015, following the Paris Agreement on climate change and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations. Azelis’ CSR program is based on the United Nations Global Compact initiative, ISO 26000 and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and is built on 25 KPIs within four main pillars: people, sustainable procurement, fair business practices, and resources and environment. Hans Joachim Müller, Azelis Chief Executive Officer, said, “Year 2020 marks a few important sustainability milestones for Azelis. After our second EcoVadis Gold rating and our membership to Together for Sustainability earlier this year, we are now excited to release our first sustainability report in which we bring Azelis’ global sustainability efforts to life. We hope that this report will influence and excite our partners about the ever-important sustainability journey, whilst also inspiring and exciting them about our transition to a sustainable business. We are confident that only a joint effort for more sustainable solutions will strengthen the relationships with our business partners who are equally responsible and equally dedicated, and will result in preservation of resources for future generations.”
