Ak­zoNo­bel

has been pre­sented with this year’s En­vi­ron­ment Re­spon­si­bil­ity Award from the Euro­pean Chem­i­cal In­dus­try Coun­cil (Cefic).

“It’s en­cour­ag­ing to see our de­ter­mined ef­forts to col­lab­o­rate and in­no­vate be­ing rec­og­nized by Cefic,” said Ak­zoNo­bel CEO Thierry Van­lancker. Four projects in the Nether­lands were sin­gled out to demon­strate Ak­zoNo­bel’s com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity and en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity: a 12-year part­ner­ship to use bio-steam in Delfz­ijl; the de­vel­op­ment of a zero emis­sion pub­lic trans­port sys­tem us­ing hy­dro­gen buses in Gronin­gen; a waste-to-chem­istry con­sor­tium; and a long-term agree­ment with sev­eral part­ners to pur­chase power from two new wind farms.

The Cefic awards rec­og­nize the top achiev­ers in the EU chem­i­cal in­dus­try with a par­tic­u­lar em­pha­sis on ex­cel­lence in health, safety and en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards. The other two main win­ners were Solvay SA and To­tal Re­fin­ing & Chem­i­cals.
