STX Europe takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. Environmental status reporting is an integral part of the company’s annual reporting, on a par with reporting on financial matters and operations.
STX Europe is committed to complying with requirements contained in laws, rules, and regulations. This commitment extends to evaluating and adopting environmentally beneficial improvements in production processes, alternative materials, and services. The Group will promote open communications on environmental issues with employees, neighbors, public authorities, and other interested parties.
STX Europe's activities have only a limited environmental impact. No significant accidental emissions to the environment were recorded in 2009. STX Europe companies gather and sort waste to ensure environmentally responsible handling, disposal, and recovery of any residual value.
