A unique opportunity

The 2016 Paris climate agreement legally committed nearly all countries globally to act on climate change and take action to limit global temperature increases by 1.5°C to max 2°C.

Mid 2021 The European Commission adopted legislation in which it details how it plans to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. AnQore is looking for ways to reach our climate neutrality much sooner.

The commission included an intermediate target of at least a 55% net reduction in GHG emissions by 2030. Authorities are mandating stricter rules on CO2 emissions and offer AnQore a unique opportunity to contribute to a lower carbon future.

The first sustainable acrylonitrile

AnQore has the ambition to become carbon neutral / net zero by 2050 and enable our customers to lower their footprint as well. We have made pioneering steps in 2019 with the introduction of the world’s first mass produced sustainable acrylonitrile, Econitrile.

But that was only the start of our sustainability journey. We want to lead the sustainability journey of the acrylonitrile industry and invite innovators in the field to join forces with us. Our sustainability roadmap includes several investment projects that can reduce our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 with more than 70%. To put that in perspective: this equates to nearly 1% of the overall Dutch target for 2030.

Econitrile: Mass Balance approach
UN Sustainable Development Goals

Alignment with UN SDGs

All UN members signed on to the 2030 Sustainable Development ambitions. These represent a blueprint for a sustainable future with peace, prosperity and equal opportunity for all.

AnQore has aligned its sustainability goals to these and we expect to make contributions to SDG 6, 12, 13 and 17 (Clean water and sanitation, Responsible consumption and production, Climate Action and Partnerships for the goals). With a special sustainability team AnQore looks for ways to reduce the impact our operations have on the environment.

Tailored solutions

To have a lasting impact on the wider value chain we realize we cannot do everything alone. We have to work in partnerships to achieve more (SDG 17). AnQore has teamed up a with rail car manufacturer to set a new standard in rail safety. Furthermore AnQore also works with a telemetry expert company to keep track of all our transport equipment and provide us the tools to monitor speeding, track issues and delays.
