Ensure compliance to international standards related to Child labor

Operations managers from every Imerys site in areas where vigilance is recommended by FTSE4Good received training on child labor regulations. In parallel, these sites’ largest suppliers were asked to certify that they complied with the International Labour Organization convention on child labor. Finally, teams of internal auditors now check that the protocol is followed when conducting audit assignments in those countries. In 2010, 19 Imerys sites were audited in this way, with no cases of non-compliance detected.
