We are committed to measuring, reporting and improving our impacts in six key areas of responsibility:

  • Energy and Emissions
  • Safety
  • Resource Use
  • Sustainable Supply Chain
  • Responsible Handling
  • Equality and Diversity

In 2017, we released our second annual Sustainability Report, which outlined significant progress across many of the 20 economic, environmental and social metrics we track and report publicly. Our 2017 Sustainability Report, which will be published later this year, will detail the further progress and achievements we have made (below).

2017 was Univar’s safest year ever in our core chemical distribution business, with a 10% total case incident rate (TCIR) reduction. Company-wide, TCIR was flat, primarily due to on-boarding of recent acquisitions. Nevertheless, Univar continues to outperform the key safety indicators for the global chemical distribution industry categories and many other subcategories.
