What Solvay says about its journey towards integrated reporting
Solvay’s third annual Integrated Report reflects our progress on an integrated management journey that began in 2012 when the Group introduced an integrated thinking approach to strengthen the connection between its businesses, sustainability and finance. Since then, our business and product portfolio decisions have been made with both economic value creation and sustainability in mind.
A note from the CFO of Solvay about its journey towards integrated reporting
“Integrated thinking at Solvay is not about compliance, it is about the way we are doing business every day. Integrated reporting is a highly demanding approach that adds transparency and, for us, it is becoming the new standard. The Integrated Thinking Award we received in 2018 from the Institut du Capitalisme Responsable is a recognition of our progress. We still have more to do.”
