A responsible way of working

Creating a safe environment for our employees is the most important goal of our sustainable operations strategy. In addition, we strive to reduce the CO2 gas emitted, the energy used, and the waste generated. Our motivation is to protect the environment, meet our customers’ sustainability requirements, and reduce our costs.

3Veldhoven hazardous waste recycling percentages. Will stay at the same level.

4Because we maintain our ultimate goal to have zero lost time accidents, we do not set yearly targets on the number of lost time accidents, but set a year-to-year improvement goal of 15%

As part of our mission to contribute to a sustainable world, we invest time and resources in making sure our operations meet our environmental and social standards. We take steps to reduce our energy use and CO2 emissions, recover and recycle company waste, limit water use, create a safe working environment for our employees and protect the environment with the help of an ISO 14001 certified management system. We believe this is a responsible way of working.

Guiding our activities to make our operations sustainable are our 2011-2015 Master Plans. We made Master Plans for energy and CO2 reductions, as well as for water and waste management and for our ISO 14001 certification. We also have Master Plans for safety at our manufacturing sites and offices around the world. Together these plans contribute to our sustainable operations strategy.
