We use our strong scientific foundation to develop the best products in the most responsible manner, while continuously striving to minimize the potential negative impact on the environment from our production and managing resources in the best possible way. We do so through a life-cycle approach and by mitigating identified risks.

Net-Zero 2040

As a company we are determined to help solve one of the world’s most challenging issues - climate change. This includes addressing the greenhouse gases that we emit - directly or indirectly - in our own operations and across our value chain. Our ambition is to reduce our global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2040

Protecting our environment

We manage emissions to continuously reduce our negative impact on the environment and human health. Pollution control is our license to operate, and our policies and processes are certified against ISO14001 and RC14001.

Using our resources efficiently

Reducing energy use from our operations and contributing to climate change solutions are critical business priorities. We work continuously to manage resources better by optimizing production processes, because we want to have as little environmental impact as possible.

Chemical product stewardship

Hazardous materials are an inherent element of our products. If not managed properly, this can pose a risk to the environment and people’s health. This is why we are committed to handling hazardous materials in a safe and compliant way, and why we strive to minimize the use of hazardous chemicals where we can. Safety Data Sheets can be requested here.


Our people enable Topsoe to aim high. Reaching our ambitious targets is reliant on engaged and motivated employees, who are provided with safe and excellent working conditions and development opportunities. Our aim for 2024 is to be in the top 25 score in the annual employee engagement survey compared to the industry benchmark.
