We have approximately 370 manufacturing facilities in 34 countries where we actively encourage and promote both community interest and involvement.
This element of our social responsibility is mainly delegated to local plant level where managers and staff are best positioned to make a positive contribution in supporting the community.
We are involved in community activities in many different ways. We maintain an active dialogue with the communities that live in close proximity to our facilities. In particular, we respond promptly at a senior level to any complaints or issues of concern to the communities around us and take appropriate remedial action where necessary and possible. In some cases, our local manager will personally visit the homes of residents in order to resolve any issues that arise.
