At Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies, we are committed to the safety of our employees, the quality of our products, and being responsible stewards for the protection of our environment, the communities in which we operate, and our customers. We are a member company of the American Chemistry Council, and Responsible Care® is the foundation for sustainability in our business. Our Responsible Care® Management System is used to support our full commitment to comply with legal and other Health, Safety and Environmental (HS&E) requirements to which we subscribe and to drive continual improvement in these areas.
We achieve global operational excellence and reliability through the integration of Responsible Care® principles into the way we operate and work with our commercial partners – from our contractors and other suppliers to our customers. We conduct thorough product risk assessments prior to commercialization and we apply necessary resources and best practices in the development and handling of chemical products and materials. We promote process safety through our management systems for the design, construction, installation and maintenance of our facilities. We use quantitative and qualitative methodologies to evaluate enterprise risk and develop risk mitigation measures. As we strive toward environmental excellence and the prevention of pollution, we protect individual and public safety by manufacturing, transporting and storing our materials in a secure manner.
We invest in and improve the compliance processes for our products, processes and services using quantifiable goals to drive sustained safety and environmental excellence. We continue to see marked improvement in our safety and environmental performance and we will achieve and maintain HS&E third party certification at the business and operational levels of the organization wherever this commitment has been made.
As responsible corporate citizens, we continue to renew our commitment to the public through outreach activities, and by proactively communicating with our surrounding communities.
