Environmental consideration is a key element in all our operations. We always strive to prevent or minimize harmful effects of our operations on the environment.
While we regard compliance with all environmental laws and regulations in the countries where we operate as essential, we also, when it is ecologically justified, technically possible and economically reasonable, improve our environmental performance beyond legal requirements.
Environmental considerations are also paramount in product and process development.
