Our responsibilities

Create sustainable value

Elkem has always strived to create value for its stakeholders. 

As we continue our strong growth path as a company, we’re focused on creating sustainable value. 

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) involves a balance between people, planet and profit. 

It can’t be addressed quickly or easily, or be demonstrated by any single corporate action. Yet it is an important subject for Elkem, and for our customers.

CSR isn’t really new to Elkem … many aspects are already in our company’s DNA. 

For decades we’ve provided customer solutions that reduce waste, energy, water usage and chemical consumption, while improving operational processes, tool life and the health and safety of workers.

You can learn more about all of our CSR activities by sending an email to sustainability@elkem-chem.com.

Do the right thing

The world around us continues to change. Quickly. Even so, there is one constant: Elkem Associates are always expected to do the right thing, and will never be penalized for doing so. Acting with integrity and the highest ethical standards is not only good corporate policy, it is also good business. 

Our behavior today will have a significant impact on our reputation and business success tomorrow. Elkem is committed to ethical conduct above reproach at all times:

By using our Core Values to guide our behavior and adhering to the standards embodied in our Code of Conduct, we strive to meet these expectations; 

Additional corporate governance guidelines and our Financial Code of Ethics also demonstrate our commitment to doing the right thing;
