As a chemical company, environmental, social and financial compliance are central to our license to operate, and we are compliant with the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate. Responsibility for this lies with our local entities supervised by our central legal department, in the Netherlands. If necessary, local Stahl companies can hire external counsel to assist with topics such as employee dismissals, permits or tax compliance. Our statutory reports are professionally audited, with the audit of our 2018 consolidated (IFRS) statutory report performed by PwC. This audit is controlled by Stahl Headquarters in the Netherlands.

Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) and ISO certifications

Our Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) policy is to manage our activities without hurting anyone, annoying our neighbors or harming the environment. All local managers and general managers are responsible for implementing the SHE policy and principles in areas under their control.

All our manufacturing sites are ISO 9001 certified and many ISO 14001, which provides the elements of an Environmental Management System (EMS) for achieving environmental and economic goals. An overview of Stahl’s SHE activities and ISO certifications can be found on our Safety, Health and Environment web page.
