Informing the public
Open and honest communication is essential for a responsible corporate citizen like Perstorp. The Group makes environmental information available to the public in their reports, in brochures, via the mass media and the internet. Some units inform the public at a local level, with brochures or letters.
Open days & visiting
Each unit regularly receives visits from various stakeholders, including universities, colleges, politicians, companies and associations. For the Year of Chemistry in 2011, the Group's plants in Perstorp and Stenungsund, in Sweden, organized open days at their facilities, for employees' families and local residents.
Questions and complaints from the public are received and acted upon in accordance with management procedures.
Each unit has regular contacts with local authorities regarding environmental and safety issues, mainly to do with operating permits. In accordance with current legislation, Perstorp produces environmental reports, safety reports and risk assessment reports for the authorities.
