Sustainability

Grasshopper among green leaves

Elkem defines sustainability by reducing any negative environmental and/or social impacts of our activities to a minimum, complying with applicable, public regulations and at the same time build profitable and respected businesses. Elkem works systematically to maintain and improve a high standard on EHS (Environment, Health and Safety), energy efficiency, efficient natural resource utilisation and reduced emissions. A set of fundamental principles and tools, including the Elkem Business System (EBS) and our governing documents help us reach our goals. Elkem is dedicated to advancing the production of metals and has several research projects that aim to improve our sustainability. You can read about this under Technology and innovation.
