Sustainability policy

Implementation of the UN Sustainability Agenda 2030
Sustainable development at BIM is “development that satisfies the needs of the present without compro¬mising the ability of future generations to satisfy theirs” according to the UN definition. In other words, it is the ra¬tional management of human, natural, and economic resources that aims to satisfy the essential needs of humanity in the very long term. BIM also base our sustainability work on the UN Sustainable Development Agenda and applies UN Global Compact, a voluntary initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies.

BIM’s role, responsibility and ambition
BIM is well aware of the chemical industries’ role in the history of modern eco-movement. We also have an insight in the huge potential we as a supplier of chemicals within the pulp and paper industry have of be­ing an enabler of a sustainable future, e.g.  to enhance our customers’ energy, water and fibre effi­ciency. By work­ing closer with our customers and partners, looking into future prospects, we aim at mak­ing life on earth more comfortable, healthy and inspiring.
Based on our knowledge about the development of sustainable solutions, it is our commitment to do more with less. Thus, we will use our ambition and imagination to be more innovative and use the world’s limited re­sources efficiently. We will make real changes in the way we work and it will involve all our employees.
BIM’s focus forward

BIM has identified the following three focus areas for or sustainable development forward:
The focus on Responsible Everyday Life implies developing human resources and focusing on systematic health and safety work, e.g. establishing personal plans for development, reducing accidents and incidents and substituting hazardous chemical substances with less harmful ones.
Third party management systems for environ­ment and quality will support our work with continuous improvement.
Resource Efficiency means that, based on a life cycle perspective, we are looking to increase the proportion of renewable resources in our pro¬ducts and to understand the end-of-life scenarios better, e.g. regarding the biodegradability and compost¬ability of our surface products when they become part of larger concepts at the customer. Finally, we want to take better care of our energy and waste resources.
Collaboration in Value Chain is a way of focusing on partnership and obtaining an increased value in the supply chain, e.g. by common interest in new innovations and alternative ways of doing things, improving information flow of regulatory and product safety aspects, and increase awareness of ethical and social standards in different parts of the world.
The focus areas mainly relate to the following UN SDG:
