At Albemarle, we believe sustainability is a journey…
A never-ending pursuit that requires time, attention and commitment to ensure a meaningful and positive impact on our world. It’s also an opportunity to challenge ourselves to break barriers by setting higher standards, improving our performance, and doing the right things the right way. In 2019 Albemarle took a different approach to sustainability by conducting a materiality assessment, in which some of our key stakeholders helped us to not only review our environmental, social and governance efforts. They assisted us in identifying, assessing, and prioritizing the issues that we should be looking at and reporting on. Guided by our new sustainability framework, we are focusing on the issues that matter most to our stakeholders and those that have the greatest potential for contributing to our company’s short- and long-term success.
OUR Sustainability Framework
Foster a sustainable business model that creates long-term value for all stakeholders. Our People & Workplace
Promote an inclusive and diverse workplace for all employees with a focus on safety, mutual respect, development and wellbeing. Community Engagement
Actively collaborate and engage in the communities in which we work and live. Natural Resource Management
Responsibly manage our use of resources and materials.
In the context of doing business in a global marketplace for over a hundred years - sustainability has proven to be a successful strategy. Bridging social and environmental impact and economic performance, Albemarle demonstrates that taking great care in doing what’s right creates a strong balance sheet, financial flexibility, and long-term value.
In this report, we highlight our 2019 initiatives through the lens of our new sustainability framework. This work is helping us to better focus our efforts where they matter most, so we can create sustainable value on multiple fronts for our customers and communities — and across the broad spectrum of all our stakeholders.
