The Celanese Approach to Stewardship
The Celanese commitment to responsible corporate citizenship, what we call Stewardship, goes beyond regulatory compliance. It is embedded in our culture and in our values – and it is integral to all aspects of our company.
We believe stewardship is an economic, environmental and social prerequisite for continued success. The processes we follow, the facilities we manage, the products we make, the safety we demand, the technology we innovate and the resources we use are all carefully considered ingredients in daily approach-to-work formulas that drive us to increase overall operational excellence. We have embraced this effort as a cornerstone of our business, and our progress achieved thus far is measurable and significant.
This year Celanese has changed the title of our annual “Sustainability Report” to “Stewardship Report.” This shift is intentional and purposeful.
Sustainability is a core value at Celanese, reflecting our belief in the importance of making a positive impact on our communities and fellow human beings. But stewardship to us means something broader and deeper. It speaks to our responsibility, not just as a corporation, but also as individuals, to serve and protect all our stakeholders—fellow employees, customers and communities. It also captures our responsibility to be good stewards of our shareholders’ investment in Celanese.
This year’s Stewardship Report highlights what Celanese is doing to “Empower People, Customers and Communities” through our dedicated employees, innovative products and local community programs. Inside this year’s report are features on our Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) efforts; vignettes about how our products are creating customer value and improving the world; and stories on the recently launched Celanese Foundation and all the good work our employees are doing in their communities through the Celanese Connects programs and through our charitable giving campaigns.
