ETCO is committed to our corporate responsibility, which entails strict adherence to applicable laws and environmental protection, as well as employee protection. We use this philosophy in the way we run each and every one of our facilities, to ensure public health not only amongst our team but within the community at large.
We are always aware of the environmental impact our operations may incur, and so our commitment goes beyond the satisfaction of accepted efforts. We continuously strive to improve our corporate responsibility methods to stay current and ahead of the industry standard.
Our product design team looks ahead to our methods of manufacture in a way that allows us to minimize the risk associated with the use and disposal of our products. We are always looking to conserve energy, raw materials, reduce waste and emissions, and be a good neighbor within each of the communities we conduct our business in.
In order to achieve the above commitment goals, we regularly assess and measure key performance indicators at plant, business unit and corporate levels. We hold our plant and business operations employees accountable for their corporate responsibility actions.
We also utilize external experts who conduct audits, making sure that we’re adhering not only to governmental, legal and regulatory requirements, but that we’re staying in close accordance with our own standards.
Finally, we provide comprehensive training and tools to our managers and line employees on a variety of environmental topics, as required by regulation.
Environmental Health and Safety Staff
In addition to the efforts made by our staff, we employ a special set of individuals who comprise our environmental health and safety staff. They are located in our business operations locations as well as our manufacturing plants. They’re on hand to help with program guidance, best practices, web-based resources, legal and regulatory guidance, and other integral information regarding our EHS policies.
