Our Green Policy

Western Canada is our home. We’ve always been mindful of minimizing environmental impact here.

By its very nature, limestone is benign, not toxic and inert

As an industrial minerals company, we take our responsibility to the planet seriously. Limestone, our raw material, is inert, generally recognized as safe (GRAS), and naturally occurring.

Our non-hazardous operations, with zero toxic processes, have a minimal impact on the environment. IMASCO is your green choice.

We Will:

Comply with environmental legislation

Operate in compliance with all relevant environmental legislation and integrate the consideration of environmental concerns and impacts into our decision making and activities.

Promote awareness, leadership and accountability

Promote and develop awareness, leadership and accountability with respect to environmental protection among our employees.

Prevent pollution and conserve resources

Manage our resources and business activities to prevent pollution, promote recycling and conserve resources so as to minimize environmental impacts

Reclaim disturbed areas

After mining ceases disturbed areas will be reclaimed to safe, stable and non–hazardous conditions that blend into surrounding terrain.

Ensure minimal mining wastes
