The deployment of this policy in operational and functional processes is the responsibility of Management personnel. Each manager applies HSE objectives in the area of activity for which s/he is responsible, and ensures that his/her team is kept informed and actively contributes to the realization of these objectives.

The HSE approach is one of the hallmarks of our corporate culture, that includes our affiliates and international sites. Applied as described, this procedure contributes to helping our company and its entire workforce to present a dynamic, responsible corporate image to our customers, partners and neighbours. I personally undertake to monitor the progress of the deployment of this policy, in particular concerning the Annual Corporate Review.
