Competencies

Fulfilling basic human needs in a globalizing world.

our competencies and expertise


Our businesses share similar principles: they are global in outlook and concentrate a considerable portion of their activities in emerging markets. While standards of quality and reliability are especially high when the goal is human well-being, sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor as well. And in our search for the right solutions, we take what is known as a value approach, investing in close customer relations grounded in a spirit of partnership.


To be successful in the attractive growth market of personal care, Evonik strives to stand out above the competition—through sophisticated technologies, close customer relationships, and cost leadership. This is our strategic goal. And thanks to good and bold decisions in the past, we have already laid the foundation for achieving that goal. Linking a segment of considerable size to the resources of a major industrial corporation offers many advantages for the future, such as access to financing, stability, and a wide range of competencies—not to mention our many gifted employees and their valuable expertise.
