At Songwon’s core lies the organisation’s deep and long-term commitment to sustainability.
The company is guided everyday by its sustainability vision, objectives and corporate values and aims to align ecological awareness with economic necessities and a heightened sense of social responsibility across all of its business activities.

Olivier Keiser, Corporate Sustainability Officer (CSO) is Songwon’s first CSO.
He was appointed early this year and the strengthening of Songwon’s in-house sustainability management function signals the organisation’s increasing commitment to pursuing its sustainability strategy in partnership with selected stakeholders.
Songwon’s management drives the overall strategic objective to create lasting value by managing innovation, operations and business practices to meet the changing demands of the company’s markets, stakeholders and society.
As one of the forerunners in the industry, Songwon seeks to become a sustainability-focused leading player in speciality chemicals.
Songwon’s range of polymer stabilisers prolongs the lifetime of polymers, contributes to making materials reusable and stabilises the polymer through the mechanical recycling step.
In this way, Songwon supports its customers to make their processes more ecological, faster and also more efficient and contributes to enabling the plastics industry to make a positive contribution to the environment.
For automotive manufacturers, Songwon is exhibiting its solution for preserving the quality of recycled plastics which enable their use in under-the-hood applications, such as engine room covers, cable ducts, battery housing etc.
Apart from meeting the industry’s requirements of improved long-term heat stability, Songwon’s innovative stabiliser blend, SONGXTEND® 2721 increases the quality and upgrades the performance of recycled-PP while extending its service life.
Demonstrating its commitment to improving sustainability throughout the coatings value chain, Songwon showcased its new collection of water-miscible products that were developed to meet the increased demand for environmentally acceptable additives.
Combining the efficiency of conventional products with the benefits of water miscibility and low-to-zero VOC generation, but also of easy dosing and handling, the light stabilisers and antioxidant: SONGSORB® CS 400 WB, SONGSORB® CS AQ01 and SONGNOX® CS 2450 WB provide a synergistic stabilisation package for water-based coating systems.
