Our values guide our work

Elkem’s values form the foundation for the way we do business. Our dedicated employees base their work on involvement, respect, precision and continuous improvement.

Involvement commits people. We know that only people can identify problems and opportunities and find solutions. By involving colleagues, customers and other stakeholders, and by being transparent and committed to teamwork, we increase our ability to learn and develop new solutions.

We respect the law, the environment, our employees, colleagues, customers, suppliers, owners, local communities and different cultures. Respect is about being fair, open and honest, trusting your colleagues and partners and appreciating diversity.

Commitment to precision expresses itself through our work to develop and follow standards of best practice and safe and stable production. By establishing work and safety standards, we can measure and continuously improve our performance.

We know that the value chain can always be improved. We do this through experimenting, using new technology and looking for ways to eliminating waste. Continuous improvement means that we are always looking for improvement potential, keeping an open mind and always ready to learn and share our knowledge.
