Sustainability Report

Refining our approach.

As part of our ongoing effort to improve our internal operations by measuring, we produce our annual Sustainability Report.

Next to its operational sustainability performance, IMCD focuses also on its commercial approach in promoting more sustainable products by using quantitative analysis and technical expertise. The key areas for its operational sustainability performance are: financial resilience, business integrity, product stewardship, responsible operations, and people fulfilment and diversity.

Approach to sustainability

IMCD recognises that, as it increases its global presence, its impact on the environment and society becomes more important. IMCD believes that growing sustainably is not only measured by our drive to improve financial performance, but also by our social and environmental impact embedded in the IMCD business model.

Financial resilience
When operating globally, in a fast-paced and competitive market, exposure to risks is inevitable. Being able to adapt to disruptions and rebound quickly during adverse circumstances is paramount. IMCD works hard to cultivate a culture of resilience, combining an entrepreneurial spirit with sound financials and reporting discipline.
Business integrity
Integrity is essential to the way IMCD does business. We are committed to creating and maintaining a culture that promotes trust, confidence and respect for our employees, our external business partners and other stakeholders.
