The Sustainability Award is a celebration of collaboration, recognizing how Solenis can help our customers meet their sustainability goals.
The Award recognizes projects that deliver reduced water use, reduced energy use, improved carbon footprint, reduced waste or optimized raw material utilization.
Solenis has always been focused on sustainability, not only in what we do at our plants and facilities, but in what we do to help our customers meet their own sustainability goals. Recently, however, certain environmental challenges, such as water scarcity and climate change, have increased the urgency with which we, as a global community, must respond and react.
Solenis is working toward a comprehensive sustainability strategy encompassing all of the relevant environmental, social and governance elements of sustainability, especially as they align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which identifies 17 goals to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. Goal #17 focuses on how strong partnerships across industries are required to drive the necessary change.
The Solenis Sustainability Award is directly related to this goal, as it celebrates how our collaboration with customers results in transformative sustainability initiatives that can make a big difference. Each year, the Award will recognize specific and verifiable customer projects that have, over the previous 12 months, delivered meaningful, measurable results against one of five sustainability indicators — reduced water use, reduced energy use, improved carbon footprint, reduced waste and optimized raw material utilization.
Since its founding in 2020, the Solenis Sustainability Award program has recognized four customer projects that have positively impacted the planet. Learn more about the winners and their projects below.
