Abiclor contributes to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Contributions of the Chlor-Alkali and Derivatives Industry to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In June 2021, the Brazilian Chlor-Alkali and Derivatives Industry Association (Abiclor), in partnership with the São Paulo State Environmental Company (Cetesb), reinforced its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), established by the UN, by signing the Protocol of Intentions with the environmental agency. Since then, Abiclor member companies that have agreed to the protocol have actively participated in training courses that have resulted in the identification of five key SDGs, crucial to the sustainability of the sector:

Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG 6)

Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7)

Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8)

Sustainable Consumption and Production (SDG 12)

Climate Action (SDG 13)

Currently, the sector’s consenting companies have already achieved 69% adherence to the proposed goals, which clearly demonstrates a tangible commitment to sustainability.

Abiclor recognizes that there is room for opportunity in the process of progress and continuous improvement. Therefore, the association will incorporate initiatives in the coming years to further boost sustainability throughout the production chain.

In addition, Abiclor has scheduled a full agenda of meetings to share best practices and continue advancing on this journey.

Protocol Expansion: By February 2024, a diagnosis was prepared for companies that wish to join the group as signatories.

Group Meetings: Bi-monthly meetings are held to discuss Abiclor’s criteria on the topics identified in the protocol (5 goals), as well as exchange information for joint progress.

Internal Best Practices: Release of bi-monthly newsletters featuring best practices aligned with the target SDGs.

Abiclor reiterates its commitment to sustainability and invites all companies in the chlorine-alkali sector to join this important initiative, contributing to a more sustainable future for all.
