Governance

Cultivating an accountable culture, together.

Organizational Structure

In 2020 we strengthened key committees to ensure we are tracking ESG progress, delivering on our strategic goals, and making meaningful contributions. These governance groups include: 

 

  • Board of Director's Governance and Corporate Responsibility Committee
  • Univar Solutions Executive Committee
  • Global Sustainability Council
  • Regional Sustainability Working Groups

Together our committees are driving the change necessary to be a sustainable leader in chemical and ingredient distribution.

Our Corporate Story

The vision, mission, purpose, and values we hold as a business underpin or ESG strategy.

 

Vision: We aim to redefine distribution and become the most valued chemical and ingredient distributor on the planet. 

 

Mission: To achieve this, we must streamline our processes and practices, innovate and develop solutions and strategies that allow us to sustainably grow. 

 

Purpose: We help keep our communities healthy, fed, clean, and safe. 

 

Values: We put this to work every day through; being serious about safety, doing what we say, and winning...together. 

Stakeholder Engagement

Our 2025 sustainability goals have been informed by our ongoing connection and involvement with stakeholders. These customers, suppliers, employees, investors, and association leaders help us determine material issues to the organization, global challenges that may lay ahead, and where we should travel on our ESG journey. 


Over the last year, our stakeholders have provided insight on business priorities, research opportunities, workforce training and communications, and reporting functionality. Their input has been instrumental in helping us figure out how we can best protect the planet, serve our people, and cultivate an accountable culture.
