Environmental Protection in Production

The authorities value our voluntary commitment to environmental protection. In the period under review, our Ulsan site in South Korea, for example, again successfully completed the audits requested by the South Korean Ministry of Environment (MoE), the city of Ulsan and the Nam-Gu district. The audits covered the topics of air, water, waste, hazardous substances and odors.

We have established groupwide environmental protection standards that apply to all production sites and technical centers. The respective site managers monitor legal compliance in environmental issues and adherence to local environmental standards. The Group Coordinator for the Environment checks the implementation of environmental standards in practice at the sites and performs random checks to verify legal compliance.
