Sustainable entrepreneurship

ICM commits itself to continuing to invest in socially responsible and climate-proof business in the years to come.

ICM creates a healthy working environment for museum staff, conservators, art handlers, registrars, librarians, archivists not only by applying an eco-friendly, non-toxic insect treatment but also because ICM can de-toxify their collections.

These values are strategically embedded in our organisation and have a direct influence on all our activities and business operations.

For the technologies we develop, we strive for a C0²-neutral footprint. For example, ICM’s humidity-regulated warm air treatments have received the CO2 neutralisation label.

Also, internationally, the ambitions of ICM are congruent with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, the world’s plan to build a better world for people and the planet by 2030. Adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, the SDGs are a call for action by all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the environment.

More specific, the ICM decontamination chamber will contribute to SDG3 (wellbeing at work-healthy living) and SDG11 (make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable).
