Sustainability and SSHE
ICI operates according to the triple bottom line of sustainability: economic, social and environmental. A Group Sustainability Policy was adopted in 2002, and the sustainability strategy is an integral part of the Groups business strategy, setting out specific indicators of progress across key activities in all three areas. Since 1990, ICI has set out five-year Challenge programmes with objectives to deliver continuous improvement in these activities. Results for each objective are reported in full every year on ICIs corporate website (www.ici.com/sustainability).
An Executive Director is responsible at ICI Board level for ICIs sustainability activities. A sustainability board was established in 2004. It is made up of senior and middle managers from across the Group who oversee the Groups sustainability programmes and is chaired by the Group Vice President, Sustainability.
The Group has an internal recognition programme for sustainability excellence. ICIs Chief Executive gives an award each year to the top performing team or site in five categories: Safety, Health, Environment, Product Stewardship and Community Involvement. ICIs Chairman chooses one of these winners to receive ICIs top sustainability award each year.
