We will conduct business in a way that is protective of the environment while providing a healthy, safe and secure facility for the employees, customers and the community. To realize this we will:

Minimize the impact of our activities on the environment by:

  1. Operating in a manner which reduces the risk of environmental incidents.
  2. Training all employees to perform their assignments in a way that produces a high quality product and is protective of human health and the environment.
  3. Ensuring responsible and efficient use of energy and natural resources.
  4. Limiting waste generation, discharges and emissions, and handling wastes in a responsible manner.
  5. Maintaining an emergency preparedness / response plan.
  6. Providing, to the best of our ability, a secure working environment by protecting ourselves, our assets and our operations against risk of injury, loss or damage from criminal, hostile or malicious acts.

Systematically manage EHS performance by:

  1. Addressing environmental concerns and security vulnerabilities in all phases of our activities.
  2. Committing appropriate means and resources to comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other requirements.
  3. Developing aligned goals, standards and metrics to ensure responsibilities are assigned and understood to achieve desired performance including continuous improvement in environmental performance.
  4. Maintaining a documented Environmental Management System (EMS).
  5. Developing dialogue with stakeholders, as applicable, concerning the adequacy of our environmental performance.
