Quality, Health, Safety & Environment
Quality, health, safety and environment (QHS&E) are at the heart of everything we do and are inextricably linked. We need to think and act on them together.
We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our colleagues and their families, our customers, our partners and local communities. We also want to be sure our customers get the best quality products and services – delivered in ways that are safe and sustainable.
We achieve excellence in QHS&E performance by leaving nothing to chance.
We put in place principles, policies and standards that are comprehensive, understood and followed. We provide ongoing training to ensure our colleagues are champions of QHS&E. We monitor our performance and invest to continuously improve.
QHS&E and Sustainability
QHS&E is integral to sustainability, and sustainability starts with human rights. We were the first in our industry to sign the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Action Platform for decent work in the supply chain; and as one of the world’s 36 UN Global Compact LEAD companies, we actively advance its principles – starting with respecting and promotion human rights in our operations.
