INEOS Inovyn has today published its latest ESG report which highlights how its business is progressing key projects to reach 33% CO2 reduction in 2030, whilst remaining profitable and ahead of regulation.
As Europe’s leading producer of Chlor-Vinyls, INEOS Inovyn is one of the top three companies worldwide, providing a range of essential products that offer the lowest carbon footprint of their kind, with Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to certify their credentials. It is also the largest operator of electrolysis technology in Europe, producing 60,000 tonnes of low-carbon hydrogen annually.
As both a user and producer of hydrogen, INEOS Inovyn is in a unique position at the heart of Europe’s hydrogen transformation.
INEOS Invoyn continues to grow and strengthen its hydrogen business through key strategic projects. As hydrogen demand progressively increases we will scale up our developments, while recognising the need for clear legislation to nurture this market and investment.
The development of the electrification of VCM monomer cracking with project Electra represents a key innovative step for our roadmap.
“We embrace our responsibility as European market leader to play an active role in the journey towards a Net Zero economy, through collaborating across our industry, reducing INEOS Inovyn’s operational footprint and delivering products that will help us reach a sustainable future,” added Geir Tuft.
