Environmental Policy

Dominion Colour Corporation and Subsidiaries (DCC) provide colour to the world with a reputation for consistent quality excellence. DCC expects and supports protection of the environment.

DCC manufactures and supplies inorganic and organic colour pigments, pigment preparations, and dispersions to our customers in the plastics, coatings, printing ink and paper industries worldwide. DCC’s management and employees recognize that protecting the environment is a cornerstone of business sustainability.

We are committed to the operation of our processes and facilities, from the receipt of raw materials through the manufacture of our products and their distribution to our customers, in a manner that protects the environment, the community, and the health and safety of our employees.

Dominion Colour Corporation is committed to environmental compliance and to the improvement of its environmental performance. To help meet this commitment, DCC will maintain its Environmental Management System (EMS) which is described in the ISO 14001 EMS Manual.

Dominion Colour Corporation’s EMS incorporates programs to manage air emissions, hazardous chemicals, water discharges, soil contamination, and waste disposal. Our Emergency Response Manuals outline procedures for handling environmental incidents and emergency situations. The Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee, made up of Senior Management representatives, monitors environmental performance through monthly meetings.

Our Environmental Policy is supported by the following commitments and goals i.e.:

  • To comply with all applicable environmental regulations and other requirements in each jurisdiction in which we conduct business
  • To implement reasonable actions to prevent pollution beyond regulatory requirements
  • To continuously improve our environmental performance
  • To conduct our operations in a manner that minimizes environmental incidents
  • To respond quickly and effectively to environmental incidents should they arise
  • To implement and maintain environmental monitoring programs
  • To work with appropriate levels of government to address environmental concerns
  • To provide appropriate environmental training programs for employees recognizing individual responsibility for sound environmental management
  • To obtain and maintain ISO 14001 registration at all DCC sites

Environmental Plans are developed and implemented for each of its DCC sites. A Management Review is conducted annually to ensure the continuing suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness of the EMS. This includes a review of the progress in meeting objectives and targets set out in the Environmental Plans and ISO 14001 Scorecards.

The ultimate responsibility for implementing this policy rests with Senior Management; however, all employees have specific responsibilities within their own areas for which they are accountable.
