Roquette Sustainability

The Roquette environment is changing:

  • Revolution in the green chemistry field, with the challenge of converting raw vegetable materials in order to replace the petrochemical industry.
  • Increased sensitivity of the populations to healthy nutrition.
  • Scarcity and limited availability of agricultural and energy resources with sustainable development becoming a greater necessity .
  • Our field of activity itself is an advantage with the immense potential of our raw materials. Roquette’s decisional autonomy and its economic means also constitute assets for prolonging the integration logic, the effects of scale and the international set-up.
