Sustainability at Alzchem

The topic of sustainability is becoming increasingly important worldwide and is also a very high priority for Alzchem. In harmony with people and the environment, we want to be a regional company that takes people’s interests and concerns seriously, especially when it comes to climate protection. As part of our corporate strategy, sustainability serves as our guide to a successful future. Environmental protection and especially our CO2 footprint are an ongoing issue for Alzchem – and not only since only recently, as we have been active in this area very emphatically for many years. Our medium-term goal is to make our company CO2-neutral.

Sustainability - Alzchem offers solutions

In times of climate change, sustainable structures and sustainable action are an integral part of our social and societal responsibility, which we must fulfill as a globally active company in the field of specialty chemicals. For us, sustainability means, in particular, responsibility for people and the environment.

The principles and guidelines for sustainability form the framework for our strategic and operational objectives and are continually further developped. They serve as a guide to a successful future, have been firmly anchored in our corporate culture for many years and apply to all employees at all Alzchem Group plants and subsidiaries worldwide. Our processes and products, as well as the raw materials we use, are continuously improved in the direction of a resource-saving and CO2-neutral future.

With our climate roadmap, we have set ourselves the clear intention of achieving the policy goals of climate neutrality much sooner through concrete packages of measures. If we consistently implement our roadmap, we will have achieved the targeted climate neutrality as early as 2033.

In 2022, the Alzchem Group again successfully underwent an independent CSR rating by EcoVadis, the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings for companies, and was able to improve its score once again. The company's activities in the areas of environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement are evaluated. With 77 out of 100 achievable points, Alzchem is among the top two percent of the companies assessed by EcoVadis worldwide in the field of manufacturing of chemical precursors. Among the various ESG topics, Alzchem achieved the highest score for environmental issues and the greatest improvement for sustainable procurement. In recognition and confirmation of its successes in the area of sustainability combined with interacting responsibly with people and the environment, the Alzchem Group was once again awarded with the gold medal.

“We are increasingly focusing on sustainability. Our actions and products make an important contribution to society and the environment, for example in test kits for the detection of COVID-19 and antibodies, in feeding an ever-growing global population, and in reducing the amount of land needed for agriculture.”

Klaus Englmaier

“We are constantly working on innovations to operate even more sustainably. The new nitrile production plant is one example. Here, Alzchem is once again relying on gas phase technology that has been permanently optimized by our own engineers and chemists and which sets the state of the art and benchmarks in terms of raw material yield and from an environmental perspective.”

Sustainability is a currency that we use to measure the value of our success for future generations. A conscious focus on environmental and social responsibility not only creates stable portfolios, but also a profitable future in which financial success and environmental integrity go hand in hand. With every sustainable step we take, we contribute to a future that combines economic success in harmony with nature and the needs of our world.

Georg Weichselbaumer

“On the product side, we are making targeted developments in sustainable topics. As a result, for example, we have new applications for our calcium cyanamide in agriculture that succeed in significantly reducing CO2 and methane emissions. Our new product Eminex® was launched in September 2021.”

We offer sustainable solutions

Products with a strong sustainability profile

Climate change, constant population growth and increasing life expectancy are the global challenges that society and also we as a company have to face.  We see promising prospects especially in the areas of human and animal nutrition and in agriculture. For example, we want to create the basis for an efficient food supply with our products. Our pharmaceutical raw materials and creatine products can contribute to healthy ageing with a higher life expectancy. With our product Creapure®  or our raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry, we make a significant contribution to this. Whether Eminex®  for agriculture or Creamino®  for animal nutrition, innovative products from Alzchem help our customers to operate sustainably.
We are in constant dialogue with our customers and together we find sustainable solutions for the challenges of tomorrow.

We stand for sustainable development

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In 2015, the UN set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which are to be achieved by 2030 in a cooperative partnership between politics, business and society.

The Alzchem Group supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and makes an important contribution to achieving these goals through its activities and products. As a medium-sized company in the specialty chemicals sector, we cannot be active in all areas of the 17 SDGs, but we are very active and show a high level of commitment in the areas that are most important to us.

We have identified the five most important SDGs for the Alzchem Group, on which our particular focus lies (SDG 3, SDG 6, SDG 8, SDG 12, SDG 13)

ESG criteria

We convince in the areas of environment, social and corporate governance (ESG)

ESG originates from the financial world and is used there for the approach of sustainable investments. However, ESG is also practised by many other companies - a voluntary contribution by business to sustainable development that goes beyond the legal requirements. Here, the term describes the ecological and social areas of corporate governance that can be measured by non-financial indicators.

We act environmentally conscious


Protecting the climate and the environment is one of the key global challenges of our time.

It is an essential part of our corporate responsibility to preserve the natural foundations of life for future generations. as part of our sustainability strategy, it is our goal to continuously reduce our DIRECT emissions.

In 2022, Alzchem`s expenditure on environmental protection amounted to just under EUR 24 Million (previous year: EUR 20 Million).
