Environmental protection

As a responsible industrial player, KEM ONE wants to be an exemplary manufacturer in environmental protection and sustainable development. This ambition is based on continuous improvement, an initiative shared by the personnel.

KEM ONE constantly endeavours to minimise the impact of its activities on the environment. In this field, our development is based on continuous improvement and aims at three major objectives:

  • reducing the footprint of our activities on the environment,
  • preserving natural resources,
  • optimising the management of our processes, raw materials and products, throughout their life cycle.



KEM ONE complies with the Responsible Care initiative of the chemical industry. Thus, it signed the revised Responsible Care charter in 2015 and strengthens its commitment to improve regularly its performance in safety, health and environmental protection.

 continuous improvement

Based on strict procedures, all our sites identify the most significant impacts of their activity on the environment: aqueous sampling and wastewater, atmospheric and noise emissions, waste, etc.

They are all rigorously evaluated and studied. Based on these detailed analyses, every year our teams set themselves priorities for improvement and periodically measure the progress achieved, in order to define new objectives.

A desire for openness and transparency

KEM ONE facilitates transparency and dialogue with all stakeholders. The environmental performance of its sites is regularly published.

In this approach, each site regularly opens its doors to groups of local people (neighbouring residents, associations, elected representatives, educational groups, etc.) to introduce its activities, professions and products, and openly speaks about health, safety and sustainable development issues.
