Imerys, Transform to perform

A unique core business



A unique core business


Imerys's core business is unusual in three ways:
  • The "Explorer" aspect: our geologists often visit the most remote parts of the planet to locate suitable mineral resources;
  • The "Responsible" aspect: in the ethical conduct of our business, in the way in which we mine these resources and manage our production, in our relations with local communities and our desire to give enhanced sites back to nature once we have finished mining them;
  • The "Developer" aspect: our products incorporate increasingly technical and diversified applications; manufacturing them requires greater expertise, significant research efforts and capacities for innovation often calling for a very detailed knowledge of market developments.

A wealth of diversity

The diversity of profiles, backgrounds and experiences of our 16,000 employees is an asset which we are constantly seeking to develop.

Decentralization and Responsibility

Our managers have significant discretion in their decision-making. This allows them to demonstrate initiative.

Employability & Social protection

Reinforcing all our employees' acquisition of basic skills and guaranteeing everyone proper social protection are two priorities.
