Turning skepticism into sympathy

Since several years a skepticism towards manufacturing found its way into Germany, one of the leading industrialised countries, impacting the „license to operate“ and investments for manufacturing. INEOS in Cologne addressed this public attitude by intensifying the dialogue with the community and the political stakeholders. „insight“ was the logical format in which the different successful initiatives were summarised and communicated.

Open, clear and sometimes bold statements give readers an authentic insight in what drives and blocks manufacturing in the Rhineland area, Europe’s largest chemical cluster.

Since 2012, twelve newsletters were issued, accompanied by a personal letter by the managing directors. „insight“ received excellent feedback by politicians, in particular from Martin Schulz, former President of the European Parliament.


The focus? On people!

The common goal was to create a publication, in which industry is not described as purely technological, but as a branch where people perform services to people. The decisive factor was to bind the general public as readers on one hand and the politically interested parties on the other, by bringing

them closer to the industrial diversity INEOS stands for. Thus, the magazine „insight“ provides value and conveys an understanding of manufacturing. At the same time, INEOS also acts as a sparring partner and instigator for socio-political responsibility. Consequently, „insight“ always focuses on people rather than technology. This is also shown by the topics of „insight“, for which the INEOS head of communications and the research and editorial team are in close contact with INEOS’ Management board.

Corporate photography, petrochemical industry

Excerpt of a photo project done for the Cologne plant of INEOS Group, a multinational chemicals company. The project consisted of updating the company’s image library by approx. 700 new high resolution photographs. The images will be used over the next few years for multiple applications ranging from external and internal publications, public relations, corporate communications, as well as decorating meeting facilities and for exhibition displays. An emphasis of the project was to visually highlight the slogan of the plant “Chemie von Menschen” by showing their staff in a collaborative way. The plant employs 2,000 highly skilled specialists from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. The photos were shot in a classic reportage style using available light and a hand-held camera only to not interfere with the work processes and to achieve a most realistic look of the work environments.
