Our Commitment


We are and want to stay the leading oleochemical company in our market segments within Europe. Care for the environment during the full lifecycle of our products and the long-term needs of our employees, suppliers, clients and other stakeholders are prerequisites for achieving our goals. 

We already have a long history of reducing our impact on the environment, such as increasing the energy efficiency of our production plants, which has been one of our key priorities for more than 15 years. Also, Oleon has long been at the forefront of providing long-term employment and safe working conditions.

The three sustainability principles, financial viability, environmental impact and social impact are translated in this report under the chapters “Green Chemistry”, “Preserving the Planet” and “Working Together” respectively.
