Sustainability - Environment, Safety & Health

Safety and regulatory compliance is paramount throughout our processes

CARBOGEN AMCIS is dedicated to developing and maintaining voluntary safety, environmental and health standards above and beyond the standard legal requirements, in order to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees.

We also provide a secure and safe environment for our neighbors in the communities we operate within. This commitment starts with the leadership of our company and extends to every colleague.

In Switzerland, our use of 100% renewable electricity is truly industry-leading.
