Environmental Performance

Early in 2000, the site obtained certification to ISO 14001 for environmental management systems. Our site has provided practical support to an adjacent nature reserve.


Our site operates to the highest standards of modern design with safety and environmental protection being given a high priority. Over the last years our site has achieved its lowest ever total recordable injury rates and some years ago site employees and contractors worked for the entire year injury-free. Just a few years ago, our site was recognized by the UK Chemical Industries Association with its Diamond Award for our consistently high level of safety performance demonstrated over the past decade.
