Let’s RISE today to transform tomorrow
Between now and 2030, our ambition is to be a true transformation partner for our customers, guiding them on their journey towards sustainability and circularity.
Having raised the industry’s standards for sustainability, rebalanced our portfolio of activities, doubled the size of our business in terms of earnings and strengthened our leadership position in clean mobility materials and recycling, we are ready to look ahead and face the future head-on. Or better yet, to co-create it. Leveraging our unique position to accelerate global mobility transformation, cater for the growing need for advanced materials and enable even greater circularity for critical metals.
While our foundation remains the same, our pace has radically changed. Sustainability is still at the core of who we are and everything we do. Our activities in our portfolio continue to be mutually reinforcing. And we keep anticipating megatrends and embracing them as our business drivers, as we’ve always done. Now, we are ready to accelerate our winning formula, building on our reputable track record and expertise as the circular materials technology company.
Embracing three megatrends as our business drivers
We are moving further and faster to accelerate the global transition to carbon-free mobility. Thanks to our expertise in clean mobility materials and recycling technologies, we are able to guide you through your company’s transformation journey, from start to finish.
We have what it takes to develop the next generation of sustainable advanced materials ensuring that they are used again and again. They represent the future but with a foothold firmly in the here and now. Together with our cutting-edge technologies, we support the transition to a green and digital economy. Wherever your sustainable plan aims to take you, know that we are with you every step of the way.
We’re more than ever determined to harness speed and meet these megatrends on a global scale.
How? By RISE-ing up.
Our entire strategy rests on four pillars, or better yet, four letters:
We want to be more than just a technology supplier – we want to combine our expertise to be a Reliable transformation partner. Working together across our business teams, we listen to your needs and provide sustainable custom-made solutions. We want to be your guide on your transformation journey towards a sustainable and circular company.
Innovation and technology are at the heart of what we do. Today, Umicore is already an Innovation and technology leader, pioneering in chemistry, material science and metallurgy. Our future success relies on us maintaining our technological advantage and value creation.
To reach our 2030 ambitions, we are set on developing the next generation of clean mobility and advanced materials – and creating a safety net to protect the world’s resources, however scarce or abundant.
Being a Sustainability champion is more than just minimizing the impact of our own operations, it means maximizing our positive impact on society at large and delivering sustainable solutions to our customers. We see it as our mission to be an industry leader in sustainability, hence our ambitious ‘Let’s Go for Zero’ ESG strategy: together, we go for Net zero GHG emissions, Zero harm, and Zero inequality. Reaching those targets lies at the heart of the next chapter of our own journey.
Considering the current pace of our organization and the speed at which the world around us is changing, we will have to excel in everything we do. Excelling in execution will be paramount.
Each and every one of us is giving it their all to continue to optimize our processes and competitive position in order to successfully scale up, strengthen our relationship with you and our partners and meet the financial requirements of our plans. It's a matter of dedication, passion and talent.
