ESIG Product Stewardship Award - Winner 2014

Created in 1999, ESIG Product Stewardship Award rewards companies for their outstanding innovative ways of achieving health, safety and environmental improvements in the handling, storage, use and transportation of solvents. The award is open to all sectors and is part of the industry's commitment to responsible and ethical management of health, safety and environmental aspects of solvents throughout their life-cycle.

This year, the jury, comprised of experts from the European Commission, EU-OSHA, ICIS and Cefic rewarded Hedinger for its excellent management of the solvents supply chain using dedicated transport and storage facilities reducing VOC emissions and ensuring low worker exposure. In addition, Hedinger impressed the jury members with its regular and effective training sessions for its employees on the safe handling of solvents and with the quality auditing procedures for suppliers. Hedinger?s achievements are easily transferrable within the pharmaceutical industry and should inspire other companies to engage in similar activities.
