Environment and Sustainability
Luxfer’s operations are subject to a range of environmental laws and regulations, including those relating to air emissions, wastewater discharges, handling and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes and remediation of contamination associated with current and historic use of hazardous substances or materials. We are committed to ensuring compliance with all such applicable laws and regulations across all Luxfer businesses.
Our commitment to environmentally sustainable business practice is fundamental to the Luxfer business philosophy. This is demonstrated through evolving sustainability programs focusing on continuous improvement of operations and products to protect and add value to our customers and surrounding communities.
All facilities acquired by Luxfer have been the subject of appropriate environmental due diligence and we continue to take a proactive approach to environmental issues across our sites.
As part of our program of improvement we intend to certify all our larger sites as ISO 14001-compliant. As of December 31, 2017, 14 of our 23 sites had achieved this objective. We report the proportion of our sales that comes from ISO 14001-compliant sites as a non-financial KPI. In 2017 this figure was 90%.
