Environment, Health, and Safety

At Cambrex, our firm commitment to health, safety, and environmental sustainability underpins everything we do. We prioritize the well-being of our employees, customers, communities, and all those impacted by our activities and products. We adhere to the highest safety standards and operate preventively to avoid accidents and injuries.

As an integral part of every community in which we operate, we’ve established well-developed risk assessment methods that focus on safely handling and manufacturing our products. These include:

  • Risk management programs like ChemStewards® (for US facilities) and Responsible Care® (for European facilities)
  • Formal safety reviews before manufacture
  • Toxicological risk assessments for all new process introductions
  • Extensive safety training programs for employees and contractors
  • Use of engineering controls like isolator and barrier technology for potent compound handling
  • Hosting an Annual Safety Day for all employees

Our vision is to achieve zero workplace accidents, and we continually focus on improving our safety metrics to make that vision a reality.

At Cambrex, we promote strict environmental compliance and environmentally friendly initiatives at every facility. Each site has programs for reducing emissions and advancing sustainability, and we’re fully committed to continuous improvement in our environmental performance. Our efforts to find the most eco-friendly synthetic routes and processes include sustainable chemistry, advanced wastewater treatment methods and facilities, safe waste handling and management, periodically audited waste disposal facilities, and a commitment to emission reduction. We’re also REACH-compliant.
