We are committed to responsible environmental stewardship practices at all sites, to operating in full compliance with all relevant environmental regulatory requirements, and to establishing specific objectives and targets, where appropriate, as part of an overall Environmental Management System. For example, at our Athlone, Ireland, site, we operate in compliance with an Integrated Pollution Control Licence granted by the Environmental Protection Agency, and our specifically measured compliance goals include air, water and CO2 emissions; non-hazardous waste recycled; and hazardous waste recovered.
Recycling, re-use and reduction of all non-hazardous waste streams is practised at all facilities, and we have dedicated Energy Management Teams at key locations.
We support environmental projects at the local community level, particularly in Ireland, where we support two programmes of the Shannon Regional Fisheries Board: a rehabilitation of the Cross River, and the Lough Ree Fish Hatchery. We cover employees entry fees at the Athlone Recycling Centre, and we support the Green Schools initiative, an international environmental education programme.
