Keeping foodstuffs cold, keeping ourselves warm, travelling around: everyday life provides ample scope for better protection of the environment. Ecoefficiency is the guiding principle. For producers, this may mean improving plant performance or enhancing the services products provide, and their safety. But diagnoses and action are the responsibility of all those involved.
Our products are helping achieve the objective of sustainable development.
Our drive for increased ecoefficiency(1) has prompted a great variety of activities completed in 1997-1998 or currently in progress.
Solvay has some 160000 direct customers.
The diagnoses and action programs cover, as a priority, the applications of our products which may present a threat to health or the environment.
