Essentra believes in careful stewardship of the environment in which it operates and that all environmental accidents are preventable - we should have no significant adverse impact to the local environment and are committed to achieving the highest standards of environmental performance. This commitment extends to requiring our supply chain and others working on our behalf to operate in a similarly responsible manner and includes improving energy performance across the Essentra group.
Essentra operates a tiered approach to environmental management designed to meet and support the requirements of the current Essentra Group HS&E Strategy and this policy:
Tier 1: Group / Tier 2: Regional / Tier 3: Country / Tier 4: Site
Essentra is committed to:
The Essentra Group, each region and each site will establish environmental objectives and maintain appropriate plans designed to sustain and improve upon environmental management and performance. As part of these, the Essentra Group and each region will establish energy performance improvement objectives and plans – these will also be established at site level where required to support the Group and Regional objectives. Environmental projects and initiatives shall receive at least equal priority with other operational, manufacturing and quality related projects and be included, as appropriate, in business strategic planning and annual budgeting process.
The Chief Executive, supported by the Group Human Resources Director, is responsible for the Essentra Group environmental programme. The Regional Managing Directors/Presidents, supported by the Regional Operations Directors/VPs, are responsible for the Essentra Regional environmental programmes. These responsibilities include ensuring sufficient resources are made available to deliver the strategy, policy commitments and associated environmental programmes.
This policy will be displayed at all Essentra locations and made available to interested parties on the company website and on request. It will be reviewed at least annually to ensure it remains consistent with the Essentra Group environmental strategy, legislation and Essentra organisational changes. When appropriate it will be updated and re-issued to the business.
