Safety & environment
"zero" safety and
realization of a Green
Plant with no accidents
Recognizing that the safety and health of people and the environment are the basic elements for securing differentiated competitiveness, LX MMA has declared that it will faithfully implement the following matters, to continuously improve its performance in terms of environmental safety and health based on clear goals and a strong executive faculty.
Introducing the environmental safety management system
In order to continuously improve the environmental impact of its production activities, LX MMA has established an in-house environmental management system and operations in compliance with the requirements of ISO-14001/OSHAS-18001, an international standard, and has put continuous efforts into becoming certified by a certification agency in relation to its conformance (once/three years).
Internal audits are conducted once a year, when internal auditors with the correct experience and qualifications are organized to conduct audits for each workplace. Any nonconformance found in the audit is reported to the CEO of the workplace, and the relevant department is expected to take corrective actions within a short period of time.
Follow-up Review by a Certification Agency
A follow-up review is received at least once a year from an auditor of a workplace-specific certification agency, with the aim to enhance objective trust and efficiency in the certification of the company’s environmental management system.
Assessment of Environmental Impact in Advance
In order to fundamentally improve or minimize the environmental impact in advance when implementing new projects, establishment/expansion projects or process changes, an environmental impact assessment is conducted beforehand in accordance with the assessment system, and matters regarding the environmental permits and safety of the facilities are also checked.
Environmental Risk Evaluations
We continuously improve the environmental performance of the company by evaluating and managing the environmental risks resulting from all activities performed at the workplace, as well as evaluating the compliance obligations related to the products and services, internal and external stakeholders' requirements, and other issues.

What is RC?
We voluntarily implement a management activity to fulfill our corporate social responsibilities by thoroughly preventing environmental pollution and safety accidents, ensuring the health and safety of local residents and our employees, and creating a pleasant environment through the complete management of any hazardous and dangerous materials used and manufactured in the chemical industry. Our ultimate goal is to develop the chemical industry in a sustainable way.
Manifestation of the Will to Implement Good Practices
LX MMA played a central role in the Korean RC Council (KRCC,) in order to settle the introduction of RC. It introduced RC through a monthly general meeting involving all the employees internally, and expressed its will to practice RC by pledging to thoroughly implement good practices.
