Butachimie is a chemical company whose experienced employees carry out complicated chemistry processes. While proud of our work, we remain realistic—we know the risk with our business is the safety and security of people and the environment. Our employees are aware of this, and therefore are trained to prevent, reduce and manage the risks. The organization and operations at Butachimie are designed to optimize reactivity and encourage proactivity and personal accountability. Professional discipline and active participation in continual improvement are two of our guiding principles to guarantee safety.

The measures we take to protect the environment and ensure safety and security go beyond the bare minimum needed to do business, beyond even required compliance. Our continual improvement program for energy and environmental performance involves all the personnel on site, stakeholders of every kind. We are committed at every level to controlling and reducing our environmental impact and optimizing energy efficiency. Butachimie is working to protect the environment, not only through the ecological benefits that our products have, but also during each step taken to produce them. 

At Butachimie, playing a major role on a global scale, we are genuinely attached to the site and its local facilities. We are also conscious of their impact on the community. Committing to a coherent sustainability policy means encouraging our 400 employees to grow, to progress; it means supporting them in their career choices. Our company culture of knowledge transfer along with our policy of inclusion and training will mean a sustainable future for everyone.
