approach, our responsibility starts with culpable
materials that ensure durability and are compatible
with our extensive service agreements. By
constituting a focus on employee, community and
product safety without constraining the quality of our
usage and product performance, it becomes almost a
natural part of our process to diminish levels of
environmental damage. Through the cooperation
with local and trusted subcontractors, we can assure
information and product reliability.
