These values are in place always and everywhere for all LANXESS employees.

How we want to work
At LANXESS, respect is defined as treating each other with appreciation and consideration, and being committed to keeping promises.
As a respectful LANXESS employee, I meet people on an equal footing and without prejudice. I receive their opinions regardless of their background, rank and position and express my own opinions openly.
At LANXESS, ownership is defined as embracing personal accountability for the full scope of the functions assigned to me and making them “my responsibility” as a business-owner would.
As an employee who demonstrates ownership, I proactively pursue positive business developments in my area of accountability and for the entire company. I act quickly and prudently, but never compromise on safety.
At LANXESS, trust is a basis for collaboration. Trust is built on reliability, transparency and trustworthiness.
As a trustworthy person, I consistently exemplify these qualities through both positive and negative developments and experiences.
At LANXESS, professionalism is defined as using knowledge and professional experiences to help achieve goals and find solutions.
Through my professionalism, I protect the interests of the company. I can accept criticism and am genuinely interested in improving both in my work and as a person.
At LANXESS, integrity is defined as an individual’s expression of honesty and sincerity.
As a role model with regard to integrity, I keep my word and act in compliance with values, rules, and laws.
