Sustainability

Our Sustainability Vision calls upon every employee of Imerys to personally contribute every year to our sustainability targets.

Our Approach

Our Sustainable Development Policy supports the Imerys group’s long-term strategy whilst taking into account the expectations of all of our stakeholders to preserve our long-term license to operate.
The Group’s international scale and mineral-based business give it a unique stakeholder profile consisting of employees, contractors, communities, suppliers and customers.
Sustainable Development is an essential component of Imerys’ long-term strategy to support growth while promoting social responsibility, environmental stewardship, corporate governance and business ethics.
