Partnership with the Natural Step

​In 2008, Omya embarked on a partnership with The Natural Step and adopted a new sustainability framework inspired by their four system conditions of a sustainable society:

In a sustainable society, nature is not subject to systematically increasing…

… concentrations of harmful substances extracted from the Earth's crust;

… concentrations of substances produced by society;

… degradation by physical means;

 And in society…

…people are not subject to conditions that systematically undermine their capacity to meet their needs.
