Welcome to Teijin Aramid’s HSE Report 2017.
HSE stands for ‘Health, Safety and Environment’ and is closely related to sustainability in the broadest sense of the word. It is Teijin Aramid’s ambition to be the global leader in the aramid business and to enhance people’s quality of life with our products, in harmony with society and by empowering our people. We believe that sustainable value creation is part of this ambition. That is why we are transparent about the impact of our activities on people and the environment, reporting openly on our environmental footprint and on how we are contributing to a more sustainable world.
Teijin Aramid is part of Teijin Ltd., and our performance in terms of corporate social responsibility is reflected in the Teijin Group Integrated Report 2017. However, we find it important to report on our own HSE performance, which is why we are also publishing a separate Teijin Aramid HSE Report for 2017. In this report, we provide insight into the HSE performance of our facilities in Delfzijl, Emmen and Arnhem (The Netherlands).
In this HSE Report, we report on HSE matters we focused on in 2017. For example, we made good progress with regard to efficiency: through our approach of continuous improvement, we are seeing more and more uniformity in our way of working within our organization. This continuous improvement approach is also applied to our products, technologies and value chains, so that we can make our products in the most efficient way and serve our customers as transparently as possible.
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.
