Environment

In essence our profession is linked to a respect for the environment and a determination to lessen the impact of industrial production on nature (water, subsoil and air). We accompany businesses in their environmental programm by helping them to reduce their waste along with sorting and storing it more efficiently.

Encouraging recycling and recovery

By drawing on a perfect awareness of the different treatment routes and the different available recovery technology, the CHIMIREC Group can guarantee treatment solutions that are lasting and constantly evolving. Taking into account the variety of technico-economic possibilities that exist and the type of waste, we are able to offer recovery at the earliest possible time via our 7 treatment plants.

This dynamic approach allows our clients' environmental performance to progress within an affordable cost structure.

CHIMIREC is committed to a policy of sustainable development

As part of its effort to achieve the threefold AFAQ certification (ISO 9001 Quality Management standard, the ISO 14001 Environmental Management standard and the ISO 18001 Health and Safety standard), CHIMIREC decided to develop an ambitious sustainable development project. This programm will be based on the three pillars of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental):

  • Respect for ecosystems and social legislation
  • Prevention of pollution risks
  • Protection of biodiversity
  • Skills development
  • A policy of responsible purchasing
  • Preventing risks
  • Good environmental practice
  • Client satisfaction
  • A clear and responsive communication

The first stage and the launch pad for this programm will be our Sustainable Development Charter, which will be published in 2010.

Come and visit our sites

In an effort to provide information to the public, all our sites can be visited on request or during a National Open Day (organized by Chambers of Commerce). You will most likely be astonished by the cleanliness and order that prevails within our 13 facilities. 
This is also part of our commitment to the environment.
