Clear leadership in clean mobility materials and recycling

These are the areas where we are most unique, where we should be able to make the biggest difference and where we have the greatest growth potential. The drivers for all these activities remain very strong. Legislation is driving the need for electric vehicles and cleaner internal combustion engines while resource scarcity concerns are driving the push towards a more circular economy.

Turning sustainability into a greater competitive edge

Umicore has transformed itself into a pioneer in sustainability since the end of the 1990s. We now intend to translate our position into a combination of sustainability benefits and tangible business value. As an example, our Sustainable Procurement Framework for Cobalt valorizes our pioneering approach and makes it a competitive offering to our customers.
