Sustainability Programme: quantifiable parameters

The quantifiable part of the new Sustainability Programme will monitor and report on eleven parameters, ten of which were already monitored in the first Programme:

  • Energy consumption per unit of chlorine and caustic soda  production
  • The quantity of hydrogen used (or valorised)
  • The transition towards more sustainable technologies
  • Key production volumes
  • Lost-time injuries
  • Process incidents and losses
  • Minimisation and optimisation of chlorine transportation
  • Responsible Care
  • Mercury emissions from mercury-based production sites
  • Publication of product data
  • EMAS and/or ISO Environmental Accreditation

The monitoring of one parameter has been discontinued: The emissions of chlorinated organic compounds: this parameter is no longer included because emission loads have been so greatly reduced that this is no longer one of the major impacts

A new parameter has been adopted: the number of hours of training per year per employee, expressed as the average percentage of training hours within the total of man hours work. Euro Chlor is convinced that well-trained workers are central to good performance in the safety, health and environment areas. It is part of Euro Chlor's mission to provide guidance in these domains.
