The VAA has been presenting the German Chemistry Award each year since 2008 to companies that apply exemplary and sustainable human resources policies. The jury bases its decision on the results of a regular survey that is conducted among more than 7,000 managers in the chemicalpharmaceutical industry. The award illustrates the importance of sustainable HR work for employees’ trust in their employer. The results of the survey demonstrate to Covestro that it should remain on its current strategic path.
