Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At Covestro, we’re committed to making the world a brighter place. That’s why we foster diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as the foundation of our innovation and growth.
We value differences, and we’re dedicated to an inclusive work environment that ensures dignity and respect for all stakeholders. We’re convinced that the power of a diverse and inclusive workforce drives innovation, sustainability and employee engagement, improves decision making and contributes to our success.

Our DEI Strategy
Our vision and values form the foundation of our DEI strategy, which is aligned with our business goals and linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Essential to our success in creating a DEI culture is combining the strategy’s primary focus areas of colleagues, company and community with actionable leadership at every level and location.
Employee Resource Groups at Covestro
All employees – from the executive suite to the plant floor – are responsible for driving DEI throughout Covestro. They’re supported by councils, teams and groups that implement the DEI strategy at the local, regional and global levels.
Our employee resource groups (ERGs) function as subcommittees of the North American Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council, and they’re at the heart of our DEI efforts. They support the growth and development of specific employee groups within Covestro through education, partnerships and community engagement.
