Culture & Values

LANXESS has the claim of being capable, courageous and lively. Capable, because we operate worldwide as a reliable, serious expert on the chemicals market. Courageous, because we set ourselves demanding corporate objectives which we pursue with commitment. Lively, because we are open and ready for changes, implementing these as and when the markets require. We want to see how each individual employee identifies themselves with the LANXESS corporate objectives and embodies these.

Business success is inseparably associated with tremendous commitment for the environment and health. So assuming responsibility is therefore also one of the four key values in our corporate culture, that we refer to as "Formula X". We ask our employees to find solutions, to engage in simplicity, to assume responsibility and accelerate progress. The result? All values and principles contribute to a lively corporate culture. Fundamental elements are the strong solidarity between staff  and management, flat hierarchies, short decision paths as well as a fair and respectful working environment.
