EH&S Strategy and Management System
Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) is a top management priority for NDB and for enhancing our competitive advantage across the globe.
In order to continue improving on EH&S performance, NDB is committed to implementing the following principles:
Ensuring compliance with all EH&S requirements and best practices. We will monitor, review and adapt to any national and international regulatory developments, including new or amended laws and constantlyevaluate legal compliance across our business activities.
Providing a safe and healthy work environment and facilities, implementing preventive measures, and establishing internal standards that go over and above the minimum legal requirements which will help employees to have clear mental and physical state while working.
NDB aims to carry out all kinds of activities taking into account the health of people, and the safety and protection of the environment.
In order to achieve this, it will carry out actions and health, safety, and environmental protection programmes, as part of its EH&S management, in line with its values and principles.
We will always be responsible for implementing the management system and achieving results.
Moreover, NDB promotes a culture of health, safety, environmental protection, and an integrated management through risk analysis, transparency and trust in reporting, continuous learning and innovation.
The safety of our workers is essential and that is why we provide them with all kinds of facilities so that they can obtain the necessary skills and competences.
In addition, during the activity cycle, we take the necessary measures to prevent damage to people and assets as well as reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.
As part of improving and managing a safety culture, we will include continuous engagement and training of our employees, internal awareness activities and promotion of good practices in all our operations.
Our training plans and courses will be customized based on criteria such as the position and duties of employees.
To establish and improve our objectives, we will continuously evaluate our performance, applying the appropriate corrections to achieve our goals, and setting up verification, auditing and control processes to ensure compliance with the objectives.
Accordingly, our EH&S audit system has a very broad scope, encompassing, for instance, work and facility safety, environment, safety audit on suppliers, and emergency response system.
Taking into due account the industrial accidents that have occurred over the years (e.g. in India), we will conduct random emergency audits to improve our emergency response system.
We adopt strengthened EH&S standards to address the issues and risks identified. We also conduct assessment meetings supervised by the CEO to review, for example, the progress of emergency audits, any unsafe processes, and evaluate our EH&S standards.
In addition, we build and maintain communication channels with stakeholders and work with local communities and wider society in order to improve our business activities.
