community stewardship

at evonik

Our most valuable asset is the people who make up our workforce, which is why we tirelessly invest time, effort, and resources in the site’s Safety and Environmental systems.

Safety is our Highest Priority

Evonik’s Mobile site is equipped with a professionally trained 24/7 emergency response team and medical personnel. Thanks to continuous investments in the site’s safety systems and personnel, the site has achieved a 92% reduction in the rate of recordable injuries since 2006. 

Long-Term Growth

Since beginning production in the 1970’s, Evonik’s Mobile site has continued to steadily grow. Our Mobile site provides approx. 1,100 full time and contractor positions, which in turn support over 7,480* in other sectors. The workforce at Evonik is very stable, with very low turnover and an average tenure of 13 years.

*According to the American Chemistry Council, every job in the chemical industry supports 6.8 jobs in related sectors.

Environmental Sustainability

Evonik knows how precious the coastal waterways are to the Mobile community and native wildlife. That's why we've added former EPA employees to our staff to help us better understand the local, state, and federal regulations that we are asked to meet. Their expertise will help us to maintain the natural beauty of the Mobile area.

Supporting our Community

Evonik encourages a culture of generosity within the community, which is why our employees spend time giving back to the community we live in through scholarships, volunteerism, and support of organizations such as Partners for Environmental Progress, Coastal Cleanup, Ronald McDonald House, the United Way of Southwest Alabama, and more.
