Keeping Track of Our Environmental Efforts

Our Sustainable Operational Excellence strategy can be seen in how we monitor our facilities in terms of Health, Safety & Environment (HS&E).

Audits in this area are conducted on each site every two years. In FY2015, our site in Hungary underwent a four-day environmental audit by a third party. The review of our compliance with current permits and authorizations, regulations and recordkeeping requirements produced zero observations, marking a first for Birla Carbon in our drive for excellence.

Another site that leads the way in environmental practices is Hamilton, Canada. A founding member of the Hamilton Air Monitoring Network, the site was recognized in April 2015 as an Energy Saving Champion committed to conservation and sustainability for a healthy environment and cleaner Ontario. The award was achieved through the successful implementation of multiple energy projects, including lighting upgrades and improving energy consumption initiatives.
