The 5 values supporting our vision

The world is moving fast. This can sometimes be disorienting and create a lack of benchmarks. This is why our corporate culture is based on a set of strong values shared and committed to by everyone on a daily basis.


Solidarity is an historic value at Arkema. It's our ability to work as a team, It's a collective strength that outweighs individual talent. Putting our talent to work on a common project, under a single banner, "One Arkema".


Performance is the cornerstone of any business. Arkema is demanding in this area. Financial performance and operational performance, of course, but also a more qualitative and collective performance. It's a value that reflects excellence, and also the performance of our innovative materials. 


Simplicity is a way of being, a state of mind. It is the fact of remaining humble and knowing how to question oneself. It is a way of acting, all the more important in today's complex world. It's knowing how to manage your priorities and go to the essential, presenting things simply to be agile and efficient.


Empowerment is a contract of trust, that is, trusting the other person to be able to move forward and to live up to that trust. It is also the ability to know how to delegate and be convinced that everyone, at his or her level can and must make a difference.


The Company’s social role is increasingly evident; it cannot be confined within the Company's boundaries. It includes all stakeholders.
Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand, and Arkema must be exemplary in this area. Everyone must be involved because diversity is an essential asset for the Group to achieve its ambitions.
