Sustainability Report 2011

Our comprehensive Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) management system has been in place for many years and is based on international standards, including ISO 14001. We also have an internal reporting system for monitoring Group-wide environmental performance.

Each of our companies has an EHS Steering Committee, with overall environmental responsibility held by the General Manager or site manager. EHS is also a standing agenda item for management meetings and governance committees at area, regional and global levels. This has raised awareness of EHS risks across our business and aims to create a consistent approach for our companies in managing them.

Our Group Operations Director has overall responsibility for environmental management, and responsibility for our EHS Policy is held by the Management Board.

The Policy requires all our companies to address their own environmental impacts and those of their supply chains. Environmental management is also an important part of our integrated supply chain sustainability strategy, which you can read about in the supply chain section.
