Nordkalk's limestone-based products contribute to the basic prerequisites of life: clean water and air and fruitful soil. We provide several industries with raw materials, without which our modern society would not exist.
On this website, the pages under "Sustainability" function as our report, which we have been publishing in printed form since 1996. On these pages, it is now possible to follow on a quarterly basis how we reach our targets relating to health and safety, quality, and environmental work, ensuring the transparency of our operations.
Nordkalk is the leading limestone company in Northern Europe. We deliver essential raw materials to numerous industries, and our solutions contribute to clean air and water as well as productivity of agricultural land.
