Our Commitment to Responsible Sourcing


Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Albemarle. We are committed to improving the quality of human life through the development of innovative products, protection of the environment and doing the right thing in our communities.  

Our passionate commitment to employees, to the development of our host communities and for doing business the right way with our customers and business partners led to the development of our Core Values.  

Albemarle is committed to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility, conducting business ethically and in a manner consistent with our Core Values. This commitment includes compliance with applicable laws at all times, as well as respecting ethical values and acting sustainably. This is not only the right thing to do, it is critical to maintaining trust and our legal and social license to operate. 

The effective procurement of goods, services and raw materials is critical to the development and expansion of our sites and the manufacture and supply of our products to customers. Responsible and sustainable sourcing, in accordance with our Core Values and with respect for the human rights of our stakeholders, also helps mitigate risk and build trust. We work to ensure that our suppliers are socially, legally, and ethically responsible—and treat the people who work for them fairly and with dignity.
