Braskem

Braskem believes in the power of human bonds and in the potential in each of us to promote a more sustainable future. As a result of such a position, our sponsorship initiatives are linked to the themes of Circular economy, Global sustainability agenda and Innovation and knowledge generation.

We also reinforce our purpose of improving people’s lives by creating sustainable solutions in plastics and chemicals as official sponsors of the Brazilian Para Athletics Team, of the Brazilian Paralympics Committee. Since 2015, we have gotten together with the Paralympic athletes, as we know our action aimed at innovation of plastics used in prosthetics makes them lighter and more comfortable, which helps the athletes’ performance.

Circular economy

Braskem is committed to supporting growth in recycling everywhere it operates as well as actions that advance the circular economy, that is, how we design, produce, use, recycle, recover or reuse plastics.

As such, we support initiatives that address conscious consumption, lifecycle management of plastics, proper disposal and recycling.

Global Sustainability Agenda

Commitment to sustainability is in our DNA and it is a premise for our action. Our goal is to become a carbon neutral company by 2050.

Through sponsorships, we connect with initiatives and entities that promote the global sustainability agenda, strengthening the engagement of different agents in sustainable action in environmental, social and economic terms.

At the communities around our factories, we support projects that contribute towards sustainable development of these regions and of society as a whole. We focus on initiatives related to consumption and post consumption, innovation and entrepreneurship and sustainable local development.
