Social responsibility
Under the name "Agenda 2030", the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development program is a universal action plan for peace, people, planet and prosperity, based on partnerships. Arkema, which already endorses the UN Global Compact, is naturally committed to the pursuit, through its innovation, of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to contribute to this ambitious roadmap.

Adopted in September 2015 by 193 countries within the United Nations, the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development program aims to address the key economic, social and environmental challenges of our planet.


Accordingly, the plan’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals represent a universal roadmap to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and guarantee the prosperity of all. Thus, governments, civil society and private sector are broadly invited to play a part in the program.

Arkema supports the UN Global Compact, endorsing its 10 guiding principles, which are among the founding values upon which its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative is based.


In line with this approach, and with innovation at the heart of its CSR strategy, Arkema is committed, through its innovation platforms – bio-based products, new energies, water management, lightweight materials and design, electronic solutions, home efficiency and insulation – to the pursuit of the SDGs, by contributing more specifically to six of them.

The European Sustainable Development Week, from May 30th to June 5th, will be the occasion for Arkema to communicate daily on very concrete examples of innovations that illustrate its involvement in the issues related to the SDG: join Arkema on its Twitter and Facebook pages to discover these solutions!
