With the help of the central function Corporate Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S), ALTANA ensures that occupational safety, environmental and health protection, as well as the key performance indicators and goals defined by the Executive Management, are achieved. The head of Corporate EH&S reports directly to the Chief Executive Officer. Corporate Communications is in charge of social responsibility matters (sponsoring, donations, etc.), while the Human Resources department (HR) is responsible for other social issues. These functions also report directly to the CEO.
The advantages of an EMS, apart from cutting energy costs and reducing CO2 emissions, include the reimbursement of ecotax and limited apportionment according to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). Not least, it gives rise to a competitive advantage, as clients pay attention to their suppliers’ energy efficiency.
