Corporate responsibility and environmental awareness are at the core of Ekokem’s business ethos. Ekokem Group’s Code of Conduct and Ethical Values Policy set out standards of behavior required by the company’s directors and employees as well as representatives of Ekokem Group and its subsidiaries. Ekokem also requires its suppliers, partners, contractors, subcontractors, waste traders and brokers to familiarise themselves with and conform to these principles.
Ekokem has been publishing an environmental report since 1994.
