To be an integrated partner
Building and sustaining the best possible relations with the communities near its sites is an essential condition for Imerys’ successful growth. The Group integrates social responsibilities into its sustainable development policy based on respect for its neighbors, leading to tangible actions on education, culture or health.
Imerys favors dialogue and mutual understanding with local parties and strives to contribute to the economic and social development of the communities in its host territories. Worldwide – in Europe, the USA and particularly in emerging countries – the Group’s commitment is reflected in tangible progress on jobs and public interest projects in education, health or culture.
Social and environmental initiatives
Every year, employees have become increasingly involved in the various social and environmental initiatives established by the Group.
