We achieve this through initiatives including:

EHS principles and processes

That commitment includes our steadfast dedication to the safety of our communities, our colleagues and the environment. As a global manufacturer, we are committed to complying with all environmental, health and safety (EHS) regulatory requirements in every region in which we operate.

Our cross-functional approach to EHS involves EHS professionals and process engineers who proactively identify potential risks and implement solutions to prevent accidents or environmental impacts before they occur. A robust auditing program in place at all of our global facilities ensures that we are able to measure our performance to drive a culture of continuous improvement.

Core EHS areas of focus

  • Protect our people, facilities and the environment
  • Compliance with regulatory and international requirements, including: ISO 14001, SEVESO, OSHA, EPA, DOT, and more
  • Monitor regulatory agencies for changing requirements
  • Partner with operational leaders to meet EHS requirements
