This document describes the Novozymes North America, Inc. Environmental Policy that provides the framework for the NZNA Environmental Quality System (EQS).
This document is applicable to all employees at NZNA.
Novozymes North America, Inc. will maintain an Environmental Quality System to continually improve environmental performance. The EQS is based on the Novozymes environmental policy, relevant International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Business Charter Principles for Sustainable Development, applicable principles of the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity, and requirements of the ISO 14001 standard.
Compliance is a Priority
The NZNA management team recognizes environmental management as an important management priority and as a key to sustainable development. Policies, programs, and practices for conducting operations in an environmentally sound manner will be established and maintained, using compliance with applicable federal, state, and local legal regulations as a starting point.
It is the responsibility of all NZNA employees to participate in the development, implementation and maintenance of EQS policies, programs, and practices.
Prevention of Pollution
We will implement practices to prevent pollution, conserve natural resources, and reduce and beneficially reuse wastes.
NZNA will continually improve EQS policies, programs, and environmental performance, specifically taking into account technical developments, scientific understanding, and community expectations. Goals and objectives will be set and performance towards them periodically evaluated.
NZNA will educate and train employees in the environmental aspects of their work activities and encourage them to conduct these activities in an environmentally responsible manner.
NZNA will assess environmental impacts before starting a new activity or project and, where feasible, implement measures to minimize environmental impacts.
NZNA will communicate the environmental policy, environmental practices, and progress towards environmental goals to employees and other stakeholders.
In order to support our Environmental Quality System (QS.EQ.1000 NNBNA ENVIROMENTAL POLICY), this system will be operated according to this procedure to reduce environmental impact and conserve natural resources whenever possible. This operating procedure was written and this system designed to accomplish these goals. All items in this procedure pertaining to EQS will be in bold type.
