Exercising responsibility in our entrepreneurial activities is a key element of our corporate strategy. We therefore continued to raise our sustainability profile in 2012 and underscored our claim to being a sustainable investment.

For the first time, LANXESS was included in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) of the world’s leading climate protection initiative. This means we ranked in the top 10 percent of the 350 companies surveyed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland which are characterized by particularly transparent reporting about climate protection. LANXESS has participated since 2006 in the Carbon Disclosure Project, which collects climate protection data from companies around the world and uses the results of its analyses to calculate the CDLI.

We were also included once again in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) in 2012. Special mention was made of our performance in the dimensions Environmental Policy/Management System, Climate Strategy and Innovation Management, in particular. Moreover, our listing in the FTSE4Good Index, in which we were first included in 2011, was confirmed. We improved our ranking against the previous year especially in the area of environmental responsibility. In addition, leading rating agency oekom research has put our corporate responsibility rating at C+ since 2011.

In June 2011, LANXESS signed the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest and fastest-growing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative. It reaffirmed its commitment to this important platform last year.

Strengthening the sustainability profile will remain a priority for LANXESS in 2013. Detailed information about sustainability is available in chapter Corporate Responsibility and on our corporate website.
