At Capsugel, we are committed to protecting our environment, and we deliver on this commitment every day in a number of ways.
We have established systems and processes to ensure we understand and meet our fundamental environmental compliance obligations. We also identify the specific environmental aspects of our operations and work to reduce the risk of incidents and other unintended events that could affect the environment. If an incident does occur, we promptly report, investigate, identify and address the causal factors involved to minimize any impact and improve our systems.
We complement these important efforts with strategies and initiatives that promote the efficient use of energy, water, and other resources with the goal of reducing emissions, waste and their associated environmental and financial costs. These efforts are helping us to better understand our environmental footprint and act in ways that make us stronger – socially, environmentally, and financially.
To gauge our progress and help identify future improvement opportunities, we track our energy, water and waste data and other valuable metrics at each site and across the company.
We recognize that our environmental impacts and risks extend beyond our facilities and into our globally interconnected supply chain. That is why we also require our suppliers and business partners to operate in a safe, compliant, and environmentally responsible manner. We also actively assess the environmental, health, and safety systems and capabilities of critical suppliers through our Responsible Sourcing Program.
We all share a responsibility to protect the environment. We believe our strength as a company depends in part on our ability to achieve the highest standards of environmental performance. That is why we encourage open communication and innovation in this area, not only from all colleagues, but also from customers and other key stakeholders.
