Developing constructive and sustainable dialogue
Out of respect for our host regions, we make every effort to ensure that our sites are well integrated into the surrounding communities. We are continuously improving our industrial risk management processes, and more generally, our supply chain process. We share our accident and nuisance prevention efforts with local residents and other local stakeholders. Our first commitment: to disseminate transparent, explicit information in a proactive manner.
With Solvay Way, we have committed to:
Ensuring the integration of entities within their territories
- We ensure the integration of communities by really listening to what they have to say. We have communication & dialogue initiatives in many sites like open doors, neighborhood newspapers, discussions with journalists, and participation in association meetings.
- We sponsor an XperiLAB truck – a roving educational science facility in Belgium that can accommodate a whole class of pupils to carry out real experiments and encourage fun learning.
Controlling industrial risks related to entities’ presence in their territories
- All of our facilities have procedures and resources to protect the health and well-being of people in the neighborhood, including managing air quality, groundwater and noise exposure. Emergency preparation and public information plans are deployed at all major-risk sites.
Controlling supply chain risks and prevent accidents
- We carry out and improve transport safety, notably through implementation of the Cefic guidelines on best practices in transport and logistics operations, in dialogue with our logistic service providers.
