HSEQ Targets

HSEQ Targets for 2012
       
Target Program/Measures Target Date Target Attainment
       
1. Improvement in occupational and plant safety – no injuries Implementation of Xact safety program 2012 • Implementation of the Xact program is on schedule.
 • The “no injuries” target was not attained by all business units.
       
2. Implementation of international chemicals programs Implementation and monitoring of chemicals programs worldwide by the specified deadlines, e.g. REACH, TSCA Inventory Update Rules Amendments (U.S.A.), South Korean REACH requirements, CSCL in Japan, EHS in Malaysia, notification procedure for China, GHS By the specified deadlines Fully attained, i.e. new developments tracked, impact analyzed, need for action identified and measures implemented by specified deadlines. e.g. implementation of the 2nd amendment regulation to the CLP Regulation concerning adaptation to technical and scientific progress; notification of 12 new substances in China; 46 REACH dossiers submitted; preparations for EHS reporting in Malaysia completed; TSCA Inventory Update/Chemical Data Rule reporting obligations (U.S.A.) met.
       
3. Climate protection Reduction of the specific CO2e emissions by 10% per business segment (base year: 2010) 2015 Ongoing measure
Reduction in specific energy consumption by 10% per business segment (base year: 2010) 2015 Ongoing measure
Increase in resource efficiency and analysis of environmental footprint of suitable products 2012 Analyses were performed for chlorobenzene, Eco-Keltan and polyamide 6.
       
4. Environmental protection Reduction in absolute emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) by 30% (base year: 2010) 2015 Ongoing measure
       
5. Energy management Introduction of an energy management system based on ISO 50001 (roll-out focus in 2012 is Germany) 2012 Implementation was completed in the German production units; IAB GmbH in Bitterfeld was the first LANXESS production facility to be certified to ISO 50001 in 2012.
       
6. Harmonization of HSE data for categorizing and classifying products, raw materials and waste Global harmonization of HSE data in the IHS system (formerly ATRION: global regulatory product compliance system) as part of the
 • SCORE project for e.g. China, Singapore, Keltan sites
 • AXAPTA project for the United Kingdom (pilot project)
2012 The Keltan sites and the Singapore site were integrated into IHS IA as planned during the course of SCORE projects. The SCORE project in China, which is tied to the harmonization of HSE data, was suspended and the go-live postponed. The AXAPTA pilot project for the United Kingdom (Atrion4AX GB) has not yet been completed. Harmonization of the HSE data has been completed.
       
7. Improvement in transport safety Optimization of transport safety in line with the potential analysis performed in 2011 2012 Improvement measures were implemented in 2012 and the project completed successfully.
       
8. Standardization of management system tools Expansion of global implementation of eMax (document management) in accordance with the 2011 plan and implementation of April Star (complaints management), Triple A (audit and activity management tool) and the HSE data recording system at newly acquired sites 2012 • eMax has been implemented as the document control system for mapping the global management system and its specific variations in the business units and subsidiaries in Germany, Singapore, the U.S.A. and other countries. It is already available as a source of information to all LANXESS readers worldwide. Its roll-out as an actively used system on a department-specific and operational level is continuing on schedule. A technical upgrade of the system will be available in the 2nd quarter of 2013.
 • Triple A has now been rolled out worldwide as the central audit and activity management tool for LANXESS’s global management system. The Group-wide complaints management system was completed with the integration of the Rhein Chemie business unit into April Star.
 • In 2012, all sites acquired were integrated into the global data management tool for HSE performance indicators. Because they were only recently included in the system, the sites at Little Rock and Gastonia, U.S.A., and Brilon, Germany, have not submitted any HSE data for 2012.
