LYON, France—Elkem Silicones received an additional ISO certification for its products following a December 2020 audit.
The certification, known as ISO 14001, "demonstrates Elkem's commitment to environmental management" and is part of the company's sustainable development strategy at the Saint-Fons site near Lyon, Elkem said in a recent press release.
"Our commitment is to continuously control and improve our environmental footprint," said Sebastien Sterin, director of the Saint-Fons plant. "We have launched an ambitious action plan to address these challenges."
The Saint-Fons site joins a manufacturing site in Roussillon, France, which maintains both ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certifications.
"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," said Didier Lemoine, HSE director, Elkem Silicones. "Elkem is a signatory to the Responsible Care Global Charter, (and) societal and environmental issues are at the heart of our group's growth strategy."
