Welcome to the Teijin Aramid Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Report 2016.
Teijin Aramid aims to be the global leader in aramids, and we believe that sustainable value creation is part of this ambition. To this end, we focus on being transparent about the impact of our activities on people and the environment, and we report openly on how we contribute to a more sustainable world. We have observed that our customers increasingly want and need to operate in a more sustainable way. Teijin Aramid fully supports this development. However, we also believe that sustainable solutions should be financially viable and make good business sense.
Over the past 10 years, we have developed and continuously improved our eco-efficiency approach. This is our way of demonstrating that our products are both eco-efficient and cost-efficient throughout the value chain. Over the years, this approach has gained more and more recognition.
Because we are part of Teijin Ltd, our performance in terms of corporate social responsibility is reflected in the Teijin Group Integrated Report 2016. In addition, in this HSE report, we provide specific insight into Teijin Aramid’s HSE performance, while also reflecting on some of our eco-efficiency highlights in 2016.
We would very much like to receive your feedback on this report, so that we can make relevant improvements next year. Please send us your views, comments or observations by submitting the online contact form and we will get back to you. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
