The obligation to pay attention to environmental impacts is part of the annual strategic planning, and products and manufacturing methods are being developed with the aim of reducing the environmental impacts of quarrying and processing to a minimum. 

Nordkalk has defined major environmental aspects, the targets set for proactive and protective measures, means how to reach the targets and to monitor their implementation. The aim is continuous improvement, and the environmental work is monitored by regular audits. The purpose of the audits is also to ensure that the operating policy is followed and the set targets are achieved. Since 1996 Nordkalk has published annual environmental reports.
