Grede Environmental Policy
Grede is committed to continued excellence, leadership, and stewardship in protecting the environment and being a good corporate citizen in all of its casting manufacturing, processing, and assembly operations. Environmental protection is a primary responsibility of management and every employee, and the company’s top management is committed to providing the leadership and resources necessary to properly implement its Environmental Management System (EMS) and support its continual improvement.
Grede's primary environmental goal is to minimize waste and adverse impact on the air, water, and land through superior environmental control and implementation of its EMS. Grede is committed to meeting or exceeding all applicable legal and other requirements related to its environmental aspects and shall monitor developments related to regulatory and customer requirements, requirements for doing business in other countries, and/or determined to be best environmental practices. Grede shall make necessary modifications to the EMS in response to changing environmental requirements affecting its facilities.
Grede is committed to continual improvement in environmental performance and prevention of pollution through employee training and feedback, process and procedure improvements, benchmarking of best practices, conservation of energy and natural resources, and waste reduction, recycling, and reuse.
Grede and its facilities shall develop environmental objectives and targets that are concise, measurable, feasible, and in agreement with the organization’s long-range business plans. All objectives and targets, and the framework used to develop and implement them, shall be periodically reviewed to determine their current status, to provide direction where needed to achieve them, and to modify them, when necessary, to support Grede’s commitment to continual improvement.
