Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) for Arkema and Sartomer

“Our strategic position as a central player in the industry, dedicated to serving our customers, creates an obligation for us to set an example of excellence in environmental awareness, safety and sustainability in chemical production.
I firmly believe that implementing an ambitious corporate social responsibility policy creates value for both stakeholders and the company itself.”

Sustainability, public opinion and regulation

Public opinion

  • Consumer pressure on brands (IKEA, NESTLE,...)
  • Voters pressure on institutions (REACH)
  • Investors pressure on listed corporate groups (FTSE4good)
  • Public opinion may be influenced –sometimes on non scientific ground –by stakeholders
