Security Improving safety and security Security has always been a key issue. With the world facing new and increased threats, security and safety have never been more important. That’s why we’ve developed enhanced, risk-based security management systems and practices to help protect our people, products, processes, information and information systems. In North America for example, all our Specialty Chemicals sites have implemented the Security Code of Management Practices developed by the American Chemistry Council. The code is designed to help us improve our security performance using a risk-based approach in order to: Identify, assess and address vulnerabilities Prevent incidents or make them less serious Improve training and make it easier to respond to incidents Maintain and improve relationships with key stakeholders In the rest of the world, we are adopting the American Security Code, or similar codes.
