The 2023 Purpose Comes to Life Awards

“For me, the common thread this year has been witnessing the power of one Orbia: the creativity that happens when we convene across businesses and functions, perspectives and backgrounds, languages and locations intent on bringing purpose to life.

What we can achieve together for business and global impact is truly amazing. It shows us that even when confronting the toughest challenges, we have all that we need to keep going in who we are, how we work and what we value together.”

Each day, we show up as champions for our values, owner-minded operators and transformational leaders at all levels so we can continue to do what we do best:
solve the challenges of our day and advance life together.

The Orbia leadership team recognized our first Orbia Purpose Comes to Life award-winning teams
