SUSTAINABILITY

For many years now, sustainability issues such as health, safety, and environmental protection, resource efficiency, and full compliance with laws and regulations have been deeply embedded within our company. They determine how we interact with our employees, suppliers, customers, and society in general, and have a direct influence on our commercial success. While we are the global market leader in chemical distribution, our aim is to go beyond this: We want to make value creation sustainable. To achieve this, we address fundamentally important topics: safety and health, conservation of resources, waste prevention, and recycling are just a few examples. Awareness of our responsibilities – including compliance at all times with laws and regulations – is deeply rooted in our company. It determines our behavior towards our employees, suppliers, and customers as well as society in general and it has a direct influence on the success of our company.

Health & Safety

INNOVA HSE Management System has established company-wide safety management objectives and processes for improving operational discipline and evolving inherent safety measures for plant operation. In addition, the Corporate HSE audit programme — a critical component of the HSE governance process — is designed to ensure that the HSE Management Standards are implemented, and best practices followed and shared. We are also committed to ensuring environmentally sustainable and responsible operations to achieve highest standards of excellence. Our manufacturing facility have not only instituted internationally accepted Environmental Management System based on ISO-14001, but also integrated with Quality Management and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems under ISO 9001 & ISO 45001 standards.

Quality

Quality Control (QC) is a vital component of our business and provides us an edge with our customers. We have created a comprehensive Quality Control program that adopts a three-pronged approach encompassing our product, customers, and team. Our state-of-the-art plant and laboratory equipped with modern testing equipment follow a stringent quality control program that meets and exceeds industry benchmarks. The program considers every step of our manufacturing process, starting from carefully selecting suppliers, testing raw materials, monitoring the product during manufacturing, and finished product specifications, ensuring we are at the forefront of manufacturing high-quality products. This initiative also enables our customers to offer products of the highest quality to the marketplace.

Environmental Performance

INNOVA works continuously on minimizing the environmental impacts of its business activities on the soil, water and air. Our HSE strategy and various measures such as investments in the infrastructure, optimized work procedures and employee qualifications are implemented with a view to identifying environmental risks early on and to avoid environmentally related incidents. INNOVA’S sites in all of its regions comply with the applicable rules and regulations relating to the protection of the environment as well as our Group’s stringent internal environmental and safety standards. All of INNOVA’S sites implement suitable environmental protection measures that vary in their form and extent, depending on the work performed at the site, the legal requirements in the country and the site’s construction history. Basic measures include multilayer soil protection in warehousing areas, double-walled tanks and collection tanks, closed water cycles, multistage water purification and treatment processes, and modern air and exhaust airpurification systems. In the rare event that chemicals are released during processing, when being filled in or transferred between containers or during transportation, INNOVA takes the appropriate steps to rectify the problem, clean up and dispose of the chemicals as quickly as possible. Such spillages are recorded, categorized and evaluated using a standardized system.

At Innova, we are passionate about our goal and our role to create value for our shareholders. We believe in the potential of our Company to bring positive change to the country’s petrochemical industry – from the products we will produce to the jobs and opportunities we will create. However, our mission will not be accomplished unless we are equally focused on “how” we accomplish it, as well as on the “results” of our collective labor.
