We work to understand and responsibly manage existing and emerging risks to the environment associated with, or affected by, our business activities.
We manage our environmental impact and seek to improve the sustainability of our activities by, among other things, economizing on our use of non-renewable energy and raw materials, minimizing the amount of waste we generate, recycling products and raw materials, controlling the potential impact of that waste on air and water and minimizing any adverse environmental effects associated with our products.
We promptly and completely investigate and respond to incidents that result in, or have the potential to cause, environmental harm.
2016: China’s highest court upheld the country’s largest-ever environmental fine of 160M yuan against six companies for improper chemical disposal, because the companies sold 25,000 metric tons of waste acids to a firm that did not have the authority to discharge the acids into local rivers. The court ruled that the companies were responsible for ensuring that the hazardous waste was disposed of properly.
