Our Footprint

At IXOM, we are taking steps to reduce our environmental footprint and foster sustainability throughout our actions, processes and initiatives.
Our FootprintSafetyQuality

At IXOM, we're committed to a better future for all—our people, community, customers, suppliers, and our planet. We're taking steps to reduce our environmental impact and foster sustainability through our actions, processes and initiatives. 

Our five-pillar sustainability strategy places a focus on material aspects that are important to our stakeholders, allowing IXOM to actively work towards a more sustainable and equitable future.


We are minimising the impact our operations have on the natural environment. We focus on climate change adaptation and resilience, responsible water stewardship, and effective waste management as our key initiatives to protect the environment.


Our people are our strength, which is why we provide our workforce with a safe, inclusive, healthy, and happy work environment. 

We prioritise our people’s health, safety, and well-being, foster a culture of inclusion, diversity and belonging, and strive to attract and retain talented people who are passionate about their jobs and have the capability to develop themselves and grow the business.


With over 100 years of history, IXOM is deeply embedded in the communities in which we operate. Our goal is to protect, engage, and create a positive impact through our operations, products, and community programs. 

We actively focus on community safety and work to make a lasting, positive impact with the people who live and work around our sites through engagement with community forums. For example, IXOM has been a member of the Botany community since the 1950s, and it's important to us to be continuously engaged with other industrial neighbours, regulators, and community members as part of the Botany Industrial Park Community Consultative Committee.

Products and Distribution

IXOM is committed to responsible product stewardship and advocacy that drives innovation and development. We are meeting our customers' evolving needs through our responsible manufacturing, sourcing, and distribution solutions.

IXOM sets the highest standards of integrity and transparency across all our processes and initiatives. 

We focus on compliance, ethical business conduct, and maintaining strong corporate governance practices, ensuring that our business operates with the utmost responsibility and accountability.

Life Saving Victoria - Watch Around Water 

As a leading supplier of chlorine to public swimming pools across Victoria, it's important to us that water is safe to swim in.

Unfortunately, drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death in children under five years of age and almost half of all injuries recorded at public swimming pools involve children.

That's why we're proud to partner with Life Saving Victoria as the principal sponsor of the Watch Around Water program, a campaign to educate Victorians about the need for active supervision of children in public pools.

IXOM is one of Australia's leading chemical manufacturing and distribution companies, so it's fair to say we have a lot of interest in supporting STEM education!

We are very pleased to sponsor the International Science Olympiad Scholarship, supporting exceptional students to represent Australia and develop their talents and passion for STEM.
