This is the role

In the role of I&D Sustainability Development Manager Europe, you really get to know our I&D customers and help them achieve their climate goals through our LYB value propositions. With the knowledge we already have in-house, you will support customers in shaping the I&D scope 3 sustainability strategies and you will further develop our LYB value propositions in this. This gives you the opportunity to develop a broader perspective and skills such as leadership, problem solving, cultural awareness and decision making.
