BorsodChemis commitment towards Sustainable Development

Every day we work for a more sustainable chemical industry. As one of the largest employers in the region, we work tirelessly to overcome the adversity of climate change for a greener and more prosperous future.

In today’s world, where sustainability has become the basis of corporate governance and responsible business practices, chemical companies face enormous challenges. However, BorsodChem sees these challenges as opportunities.

As one of the largest employers in the region, we have had and will have a significant impact on the lives of our employees and the local community throughout generations. It is our top priority to maintain a stable high level of employee satisfaction, maximum occupational health, and safety.

Nothing proves our high-level social responsibility better than addressing the needs and challenges of local communities.

As a responsible company, we must support global endeavours with our activities. We have redesigned our systems and management practices in order to progress through innovation and the best available practices in tune with the environment. In addition to our numerous projects aiming to reduce our footprint, increase resource efficiency, and facilitate the regeneration of nature, we are dedicated to understanding the full life cycle of materials. Towards supporting the rejuvenation of nature, we minimize our wastes by operating an integrated production system.


We continue redesigning our systems and management practices in order to grow and prosper through the best available practices in harmony with the environment. Committed to supporting natural revival, we operate an integrated management and production system.


Raising the awareness of our “Safety First” approach is the basis of the safety and trust we want to strengthen among our colleagues, partners and within the local community. Our goal is to maintain a stable safety culture and continue strengthening the awareness of our employees.

Social Responsibility

As the largest chemical company in the region, we have a responsibility towards our employees, customers and local communities alike. We can only succeed together. Let us take care of each other!

For our Company’s success, it is very important to recruit and retain a motivated and highly skilled workforce, achieve outstanding professional knowledge through continuous improvements, and strengthen our employees’ commitment by increasing their satisfaction. Besides conscious employer branding, our Collective Bargaining Agreement, which includes more favourable employment and remuneration terms than the Hungarian Labour Code, also supports our goals.

We provide a long-term and secure workplace and create a safe working environment for our employees in a liveable, lovable, and successful corporate environment. Almost 20 percent of our colleagues have over 30 years of experience in the chemical industry.

In addition, rejuvenation, recruitment, and talent management play a key role in our headcount management strategy. We believe that diversity highly contributes to our success improving internal innovation and creativity, involving new customers, suppliers, and other partners including the ability to react quickly to changes.

We believe that satisfied teams that work constructively and fairly represent the fundamental condition to realize our strategic goals. As such, we work in partnership with our colleagues, and their interest representative bodies. Our cooperation is characterized by openness, mutually beneficial solutions, and honesty.

We contribute to preserving our employees’ health

In our occupational medical office equipped with modern equipment, our employees receive professional care. In addition to mandatory check-ups, our employees can visit our occupational

health service providers as part of regular medical consultations.

We set a strong focus on the development of health awareness by supporting the enhancement of employee safety awareness. We introduced a new benefit element that provides an opportunity for our employees to utilise such independent private health services free of charge that help to maintain health, prevent and detect illnesses at an early stage as well as make professional medical care easily and quickly available in cases of complaints.

We also established the so-called ‘Mini Hospital’ service operating on our site where our employees can participate in voluntary screenings and medical examinations/treatments. Within this framework, consultations with 15 different specialists are available at our site, for which we acquired state-of-the-art medical equipment to ensure its high standards.

We organize “Challenge programs” to encourage a health-conscious attitude and related to this we organised our first Health Week with thematic days to provide guidance for everyone. To propagate a healthy lifestyle, our Company provides employees with free sports facilities.


Our company publishes its Sustainability Report every two years, which we compile following the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) guidelines. With this report, we want to present our objectives to our stakeholders and summarize the achieved results.
