The Made in Chimex approach
Consumers are increasingly concerned about the conditions under which products are created, and aware of environmental issues.
In France, 71% consider that protection of the environment must be a priority for the authorities (IPSOS survey for France Bleue, June 2010).
Worldwide, 91% of respondents* consider protection of the environment to be a priority, while 76% of them declare that they have bought a product with environmental benefits (Etude Cone Communications, Echo Global CR Opportunity Study, October 2011).

And at the same time, the authorities are developing the regulation of the chemical industry.
Taking into account the realities of environmental considerations and public opinion, the REACH* European regulations have transformed the regulatory framework governing the management of chemical products.
Our position is complex. Chimex as a company has responsibilities vis-à-vis its clients, its shareholders, its employees and stakeholders in the society around it.
For this reason, we wish to work with a crucial long-term consideration of the impacts we have on society.
Thus we are seeking a delicate balance of short- and long-term factors.
To deal with this complexity, we have defined a carefully thought-out approach, the ‘Made in Chimex’ approach.
Our intention is to generate value while dealing with the considerations of clients, stakeholder and citizen-consumers.
We base this on :
- of our processes, using appropriate and innovative technology, and principles of eco-design ;
- The promotion of a responsible methodology in the development of industrial processes in fine chemicals and biotechnology ;
- through technical and corporate explanations ;
- Auditing and certification of our results in order to guarantee our objectivity and neutrality.
