Environmental Compliance

Environmental Compliance

Adherence to regulations, including permits, licenses, building deeds and other requirements to which the NSG Group subscribes, is a fundamental condition for the fulfilment of the NSG Group Sustainability Policy and the Environmental Policy.

Each site establishes and maintains procedures to identify and list all environmental laws, regulations, requirements and rules that apply to their operations.

Site registers for legal and other requirements include the source of a requirement (e. g. law, regulation, agreement or permit), the related environmental aspect of the site, the applicable obligations for the site and the responsibility and/or relevant procedures in place to fulfil the obligations.

Legal & other requirements are tracked - e. g. through a subscription service for all national and regional regulations. Respective changes are reviewed on how this new or changed requirement applies to the organization's environmental aspects. Applicable new or changed requirements are subsequently routed to the relevant level of responsibility in the organization.

Certified Environmental Management Systems to ISO 14001 are implemented at the vast majority of the NSG glass melting and downstream manufacturing operations. This includes frequent internal as well as 3rd party Environmental audits to confirm ongoing effectiveness of the Envionmental Management, continuous improvemement and Environmental compliance monitoring.

In the past, we used to have some cases of Environmental Non-compliance occurred despite the Environmental Compliance controls in place, and sanctions were raised by authorities. They are registered as failures in the Environmental Management System and were subject to immediate corrective actions, root cause analysis and implementation of control measures.

We did not have such non-compliance cases in the last two years.
