At Birla Carbon, sustainability is our constant aspiration. We have set targets to improve our environmental stewardship, while creating a workplace where employees feel supported and encouraged to do their best. This includes promoting an attitude of collaboration, Sharing the Strength to develop innovative product solutions that address our customers’ needs both now and in the future.
Every decision we make is influenced by our Sustainable Operational Excellence (SOE) strategy: from how we design and run our plants, to how we interact with our customers, our suppliers and local communities. Our strategy relies on three key elements: people, product and process.
“At Birla Carbon, we have reached a maturity level where we have the tools and framework to better address sustainability and have much to share with others. It is our obligation to go to the next level by sharing the strength and involving all our partners and stakeholders to deliver even greater value.”Dr. Gilles Moninot Global Sustainability Director
With over a century’s worth of expertise in carbon black, we work to share our knowledge with our customers, employees and communities to increase value for everyone. From this desire comes our Purpose, Share the Strength, and the five Purpose Principles that guide our efforts.Focusing on what matters
Operating in 12 countries, we aspire to reach higher standards of responsible stewardship, reducing our impact on both the planet and people. To achieve this, we have aligned Birla Carbon’s operations with the Aditya Birla Group (ABG) Sustainable Business Framework. Through ABG, whose sustainability framework has been certified as conforming to the requirements of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), Birla Carbon has also aligned our strategy, adhering to the 10 principles of the UNGC.
At Birla Carbon, our vision is to be the most respected, sustainable and dynamic global carbon black business. We want to be the preferred partner for our customers and to show employees we are the best place to work. To achieve this, we are placing a stronger focus on our SOE strategy.Our Approach
