Materials for a better life

Materials are at the core of our daily lives, and are key for wealth creation and, ultimately human progress.  

At Umicore, we stand by our convictions of making materials that will improve our quality of life and the health of our planet, while delivering sustainable value to our stakeholders. That’s why we place great emphasis on our closed-loop business model and, more particularly, in the sound and efficient recycling of metal-related materials, making them vital for sustainable products and services.  

We also actively invest in and pursue activities that have a positive impact on society from reducing harmful vehicle emissions, giving new life to used metals or powering the clean cars of the future. 

We want Umicore to lead the way in creating and providing material-based solutions that live up to our mission of Materials for a better life.

The Umicore Way is the cornerstone of everything we do at Umicore. Our strategy sets out our business goals and growth ambitions for the coming years, as well as our sustainability and broad environmental, social and governance objectives. The Umicore Way outlines our values and the way in which we wish to achieve these goals as well as our overall commitment to the principles of sustainable development. We believe that the broad values and aspirations captured in this document should be applicable in all contexts – in different regions, cultures and business situations. The Umicore Way is not only for Umicore employees but also covers our relationships with all our stakeholders.

The Umicore Way is supplemented by detailed company codes and charters including the Umicore Code of Conduct, the 2020 Belgian Code on Corporate Governance, the Umicore Corporate Governance Charter and the Umicore Dealing Code.
