Rongsheng Petrochemical secured its position as China’s highest valued chemicals brand with a brand value increase of 12% to $2.6 billion. Its position in our rankings also improved by one place to 7, with its Brand Strength Index score increasing 2 points to 71 primarily owing to higher Familiarity and Reputation scores. Rongsheng Petrochemical’s brand strength rating correspondingly improved from AA- to AA. The brand sought to expand its influence in both the international market and domestic market in China by partnering with Saudi Aramco, which would strengthen the current crude oil trading relationship between both brands. With the combined strength of these two brands, Rongsheng Petrochemical is expected to generate higher margins from the global market.
Rongsheng Petrochemical is a frontrunner in China’s chemicals sector in its prioritisation of sustainability and leading role in nation-wide efforts to meet national green development goals.

Furthermore, Rongsheng Petrochemical has actively incorporated environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles into its strategic management.
