Our Sustainable Opportunity Policy is based on the principle that by integrating health, safety and environmental considerations into all aspects of our business, Honeywell protects its people, communities and the environment; achieves sustainable growth and accelerated productivity; drives compliance with all applicable regulations; and develops technologies that expand the sustainable capacity of our world.
This policy is deliberately and directly embedded into our company-wide operating system, a blueprint for continuous operational improvement. Endorsed annually by our CEO and senior leadership, the policy is posted in every facility and communicated to all employees and contractors.
Our commitment to be more efficient and responsible is reflected in the extensive work we do to make our businesses more environmentally friendly, safer and more sustainable.
With our roots partly in the chemical industry, we have environmental remediation issues arising out of operations in the past, mostly in businesses Honeywell closed or sold years ago. We are responsibly addressing those issues using world-class science, design and engineering to protect human health and the environment. Please see our Corporate Citizenship Report for how we’re transforming properties into sustainable assets for their surrounding communities.
Our Health, Safety, Environmental, Product Stewardship and Sustainability Management practices are managed by a global team of trained professionals with extensive knowledge and hundreds of years of collective experience.
We use third-party-certified standards, including ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, and industry best practices, which is fully integrated into our operating system. Compliance is monitored through an audit process. The timely development and implementation of process improvement and corrective action plans are closely monitored.
