The right management system – a factor for success
At LANXESS, a central management system provides the necessary global structures to ensure responsible commercial practices. Through this tool, we have created a transparent framework system of rules that unite management and employees across national borders. Worldwide we are guided by internal directives and operating procedures, as well as by ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 internationals standards for quality and environmental management and ISO 50001 for energy management.
External, independent experts regularly audit the progress of system in integrating new sites into our management system and the system’s performance worldwide. Confirmation of our compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 takes the form of a global matrix certificate. We successfully completed the recertification audit in 2015. Our energy management system was certified separately in Germany.
Health, safety, environmental protection and quality.
HSEQ management is an important part of LANXESS’s integrated management system. HSEQ stands for health, safety, environmental protection and quality. Since its foundation, the specialty chemicals group has geared its HSEQ management system towards achieving uniform standards and bases of assessment for all LANXESS sites globally. For this purpose, the requisite KPIs are recorded electronically worldwide, thus enabling LANXESS to systematically determine the required activities and goals for each business unit/site and to develop them sustainably in the future.
