CNIM provides a response to the twin challenges of driving energy efficiencies for its clients and reducing the environmental impact of its activities – at the Group’s own sites, as well as those of its customers.

CNIM has established a proactive CSR approach and is committed to building balanced, long-lasting relationships with all of its partners as it develops the Group’s business activities.
