We adopt a rigorous approach to managing our business operations in an environmentally responsible way, committing twenty years ago to our EHS Decalogue objectives that have helped us to reduce the environmental impact of our products and operations.

ST Environment Policy

ST’s Environmental Policy is based on the belief that it is our responsibility to society to protect the natural world from our industrial processes and products. Our commitment to the environment is a strong characteristic of our identity and a genuine source of pride and motivation within the company. We also believe that environmental care makes good business sense and contributes to the overall efficiency of the company.

Our Environmental Policy and Procedures describe how our manufacturing operations: manage pollution prevention, reduce our consumption of natural resources, reduce waste, and minimize our impact (social and environmental) of chemical substances. The Policy is in line with international and local regulations, incorporating best practice principles from the International Chamber of Commerce Business Charter for Sustainable Development, as well as the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) and the ISO 14001 international standard.
Our Policy has been in place since 1993 and is testament to our long-standing commitment to minimizing our environmental impacts and continuously improving our environmental performance – for more information, see our Sustainability report.

All ST’s manufacturing sites are
EMAS and
ISO 14001 certified

ST Environment, Health and Safety Decalogue

We were one of the first companies in the 1990s to publicly commit to reducing the impact of our business operations on the environment. Ten medium to long-term targets, designed to improve ST’s health, safety, eco-design and environmental performance, are encapsulated in our Environment Health and Safety Decalogue, a document that is widely distributed to our employees, suppliers, customers and partners. The Decalogue, overseen by the CEO, has been revised fourth times since it was first published in 1995 to reflect our desire to continuously improve our EHS performance and ensure our business grows in a sustainable manner.

Environmental governance

EHS performance is evaluated, on a quarterly basis, against the Decalogue’s targets at all levels across the business, during individual site environmental committees chaired by site managers through to Corporate Staff meetings overseen by the CEO. The results are reported at company level on an annual basis in our Sustainability report.
