Sustainability Performance

Sustainability Performance

Borealis is committed to transparent reporting on its sustainability performance and welcomes this as an opportunity to engage in constructive dialogue with its key stakeholders. Borealis publishes on non financial information as part of the Group’s Annual Report, describing how it manages and performs on its most material environmental, social and governance issues. 

Our Annual Report contains non-financial information published in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option, as well as the Austrian law for non-financial reporting (Nachhaltigkeits- und Diversitätsverbesserungsgesetz – NaDiVeG).

External recognition and cooperation for supply chain responsibility 

In 2020, Borealis was awarded with an EcoVadis Gold Medal for the 4th successive year, which places our corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance in the top 5 percent amongst the participating companies in our industry.

Each year shortly after the publication of the Group Annual Report Borealis participates in the EcoVadis CSR assessment to assess the company’s sustainability performance compared to our peers. The assessment covers the categories of environmental impact, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Our customers can request Borealis’ results directly from EcoVadis.

Recognising that the most effective sustainability results are not obtained in isolation, Borealis has partnered with other chemical companies to encourage improved sustainability performance of chemical supply chains. The initiative Together for Sustainability (TfS) assesses supplier sustainability through assessments and audits, the results of which are shared with the programme members. Borealis’ suppliers are encouraged to take part in TfS CSR assessment, or similar.
