On the way to net zero

AnQore was the first acrylonitrile producer to introduce ISCCplus certified Econitrile and the first to switch to 100% green electricity. We work hard to ensure availability of affordable sustainable raw materials for our customers and to become net zero before 2050.

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.
