ESG+C™ is Solenis’ Formula for Sustainability Success

At Solenis, our customers are a key part of the equation when we solve for sustainability.  We know that when we partner with our customers in water-intensive industries and drive value through sustainable solutions we all succeed.

We are proud of our contribution to creating a more sustainable future for our planet, and we remain committed to continuous improvement and innovation to strengthen our existing customer relationships and find new business opportunities.

In 2020, we formalized our approach to incorporate sustainability into our business with more rigor, transparency and accountability. We remain dedicated to tracking E, S, and G across our business and to partnering with our customers (the C in our equation) to ensure future success of our stakeholders. We are pleased to share our progress — and our path forward.


We strive to be each customer’s most trusted supplier by solving problems with the right people, the right experience and the right technology. We’re built to deliver value. Our innovative process and water treatment solutions drive sustainability by reducing water and energy use and raw material waste while improving operational efficiency, productivity and yields.


The Solenis vision is to enable our customers’ success through innovative process and water treatment solutions. We’re proud to work toward a world where true sustainability and operational efficiency are delivered and documented more effectively than anyone could imagine.

Our Approach

Our sustainability approach is core to our overall business strategy: supporting our customers in their own sustainability journeys in demonstrable ways. Foundational to this, every functional group in our company participates in several programs to drive our own sustainable growth. This clear focus contributes to creation of a circular economy with less consumption of natural resources while minimizing the impact on our environment and society.

In 2020, we carried out a materiality assessment to identify the most material topics to our stakeholders and our business. Although we have been involved in numerous sustainability initiatives for many years, the materiality assessment has helped to inform the development of our strategic sustainability approach, which organizes our actions and commitments across four focus areas: Wellbeing, Health & Safety of Our People; Protecting our Planet; Partnerships in Our Value Chain; and Governance and Compliance.

Strategic Framework

Through the actions and commitments in each of the four focus areas, Solenis aims to create value for our stakeholders, while responding to sustainability and societal challenges, including contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Solenis has prioritized five SDGs where we believe we can have the biggest impact through our customers, products, processes and partnerships:
