Our Environmental Approach

Longstanding Commitment

Guided by the precautionary principle, our philosophy is that “prevention is better than cure.” We have been working to minimize the environmental impacts of our products, processes and services since 1970. We prevent threats of serious or irreversible damage to the environment and/or health. Based on scientific evidence and stakeholder consultation, policies can be developed that may go beyond legislative compliance. Decisions for alternatives take into account the level of concern and the availability and technical feasibility of those alternatives.
