Here at the Joffre Site, we operate our manufacturing facilities responsibly, adhering to the Responsible Care principles developed by the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC)
. All aspects of our operations reflect a safe and caring attitude for our employees, our communities and the environment. We are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment because it is the right thing to do, and is key to the sustainability of our business.
Areas of Focus:
Our Responsible Care approach is supported by policy, a management structure and a comprehensive Environmental Management System. The System helps us stay on top of many initiatives, track performance and communicate our progress to stakeholders. It organizes our commitments and regulatory responsibilities to make sure we have the right environmental programs in place to continuously improve.
This approach calls on every employee to work in ways that help us achieve our environmental performance goals. A staff of focused professionals located here at the Joffre Site support employees in their daily work and future planning. They also work with various groups and agencies with environmental mandates that may influence our operations or the communities where we live.
Working with Others
NOVA Chemicals has relationships with groups and agencies
that have a specific mandate related to environmental issues. Such co-operative working relationships are part of NOVA Chemicals commitment to reducing the impact of its operations on the environment. They also complement the obligations we have to Responsible Care as a member of the Canadian Chemical Producers' Association.
You'll find more information about NOVA Chemicals and Responsible Care in the Social Responsibility
section of the NOVA Chemicals website.
