Elkem Silicones recently announced that its plant in Saint-Fons, France, has obtained ISO 14001 certification, demonstrating its commitment to environmental management. The certification comes after an audit in December 2020.

The Saint-Fons site thus joins all the production sites of Elkem Silicones already certified; the manufacturing site in Roussillon, France, which will have dual ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certification for four years. Elkem Silicones reports that its goal is to develop and produce silicones that meet the needs and expectations of its customers while respecting its compliance obligations and reducing its environmental impact by mastering the environmental aspects of its activities.

“Our commitment is to continuously control and improve our environmental footprint,” said Sébastien Stérin, director of the Saint-Fons plant. “We have launched an ambitious action plan to address these challenges.”

According to Didier Lemoine, HSE director, “This process is part of the entire value chain of our business, from the purchase of raw materials or services, to the realization in our industrial processes, to the delivery of the product to our customers. Elkem is a signatory to the Responsible Care Global Charter, societal and environmental issues are at the heart of our group’s growth strategy.”
