Security is one of the cornerstones of our commitment to the principles of Responsible Care and an important focus for our company. As a company whose R&D and manufacturing operations require the handling of hazardous materials and the use of valuable equipment, we recognize the importance of assuring the security of our facilities, our employees and neighboring communities.
Our security policy is based on implementation of all related Israeli and international laws and regulations. Security operations are performed in full cooperation with local security forces in our areas of operation. Beginning in 2008, we broadened security activities at our Israeli plants and security issues are now routinely examined at our plants worldwide as part of our periodic internal controls.
Each of our segments’ Board of Directors has appointed a committee whose mandate includes reviewing security issues. The committees are supported and advised by external security consultants.
