As a good corporate citizen, Archroma is proud to be creating jobs, protecting the environment and
developing local communities. We get involved with our local communities to support and foster education,
health, and in the creation of general social upliftment programs.
Safe sites, safe neighbors
All Archroma sites are actively engaging and assessing the needs of their communities at a local level,
based on the needs that the local management teams are aware of and engaging with the stakeholders.
