Safety and Environmental Protection

We take our responsibility in the areas of occupational and product safety very seriously. This is described in internal Safety Manuals and Working Instructions. Our central occupational health and safety goals are 'Safe workplaces' and 'Safe plants and processes'. Because everything we do is future-oriented and responsibly geared towards sustainable development.

For years, the guidelines of the worldwide Responsible Care (RC) initiative have been an important element of our processes. Environmental protection and sustainable processes are essential for us and an integral part of our daily activities.

We have set up a group-wide sustainability unit (sustainability(at), participate in the EcoVadis sustainability platform and have joined the UN Global Compact initiative. You can find our current policy statement on human rights and the environment here and further information on our group-wide sustainability website.
