CREATING A BETTER PRESENT – WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE FUTURE
At BIM we are well aware of the chemical industries’ role and challenges in a modern eco-oriented environment. As a supplier of chemicals within the pulp and paper industry, we act as an enabler of a more sustainable future, helping our customers in enhancing their energy, water and fibre efficiency. By creating closer working relationships with customers and partners, looking into future prospects, we contribute in making the pulp and paper chemistry greener and life on earth more sustainable, healthy and inspiring.
Based on our knowledge about the development of sustainable solutions, we are committed to always trying to do more with less. Thus, we will use our expertise and imagination to be more innovative and use the world’s limited resources efficiently. We will therefore continuously make real changes in the way we work, and it will involve all our employees.
