  • As a leading global producer of specialty chemicals and performance materials, Hexion is committed to excellence in environmental, health, and safety (EHS) performance. Excellence in EHS performance is an integral part of our business and is essential for our long-term business success. We will operate our business according to responsible EHS management principles, which will be the foundation of our global EHS management program.

     

    Accordingly, Hexion’s policy is to:
    1. Operate in an ethical, safe, and environmentally responsible manner that protects our associates, customers, and communities while benefiting society, the economy, and the environment.
    2. Comply with all applicable EHS laws, regulations, and other requirements and partner with governments and other appropriate stakeholders to develop and implement effective and efficient EHS programs.
    3. Assess the EHS and security implications of our operations and products and mitigate risks using effective implementation of risk management and product stewardship measures.
    4. Minimize the environmental impact of our operations and products in a manner that supports the sustainability of our business.
    5. Foster a culture to continually identify and eliminate exposures and manage associated EHS and process safety risks throughout all levels of our organization to prevent injury, illness and pollution and ensure necessary support for individuals to carry out their responsibilities.
    6. Establish meaningful EHS performance measures and self-assessment programs and employ them in driving continuous improvement of our business planning and operating processes in alignment with the Responsible Care® Management System and Guiding Principles.
    7. Be prepared to respond appropriately to emergencies that might arise as a consequence of our operations and/or products.
    8. Educate our associates and communicate with our contractors, customers, and the public on the safe and environmentally responsible use and handling of our products.
    9. Be a safe and responsible neighbor in the communities in which we operate.
    10. Communicate openly about our risks, EHS programs, and performance in a process that encourages transparency and dialogue with stakeholders.

    All associates, contractors, and others working on Hexion’s behalf are expected to take the path of highest integrity. They are encouraged and expected to communicate any EHS concerns to enable prompt investigation and action and to understand and perform their jobs consistent with this EHS policy.
