The impact of these efforts can be seen globally. For example:</p> <ul style="list-style:disc; font-size:16px;"><li>In Grove City, Pennsylvania, our engine plant is equipped with three test cells that can regenerate power back into the grid—ensuring that energy generated by engines being tested does not go to waste. In 2019 alone, this capability returned over 600 million kWh to the grid.</li> <li>In Leipzig, Germany, Wabtec commissioned a 750kW solar power plant on the roof of our two-production halls. The solar power delivers 30-50 percent of the site’s total power consumption and feeds energy back to the public grid when production is higher than consumption. In early 2020, Wabtec broke ground on a new German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) Gold-certified property in Bochum, Germany with efficiency features that create a net reduction of 141 tons of CO2 per year -- the same CO2 output as driving about 870,000 miles by car.</li> <li>In Hosur, India, we are capturing rainwater in a percolation pit for gardening use and groundwater recharge. The facility features a rainwater harvesting system to recharge groundwater by filtering and re-injecting it to an existing bore-well. The facility also recycles wastewater from production processes and other on-site sources by filtering and purifying it for re-use.</li> </ul><p>Wabtec is committed to achieving better performance and safer operations with less energy and fewer natural resources by developing eco-friendly technologies and implementing programs and systems to drive sustainability and safety across our locations and operations. Every initiative is viewed through our People First lens that prioritizes the safety and well-being of our employees. Wabtec’s goal is to provide safe environments for all employees and foster a culture that results in zero accidents.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 26 Jun 2020 17:20:22 +0000 Lainie 1301 at https://www.wabteccorp.com Innovating with Purpose https://www.wabteccorp.com/Sustainability/Innovating-with-Purpose <span>Innovating with Purpose </span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/116" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Lainie</span></span> <span>Fri, 06/26/2020 - 17:19</span> <div class="slider-section"> <div class="img-wrapper" style="background-image: url('/sites/default/files/2020-06/Wabtec-Innovating-with-Purpose2.png');"></div> </div> <div class="container-fluid"> <p> </p> <div class="row"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-4"> <table class="table" style="margin-top:20px; width:auto;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Driving-a-More-Sustainable-Future">Driving a More Sustainable Future</a></td> </tr><tr style="background-color:#f1f1f1;"><td><a href="/Sustainability/Innovating-with-Purpose">Innovating with Purpose</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Reducing-the-Environmental-Footprint-of-Operations">Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Operations</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Empowering-People-and-Communities">Empowering People and Communities</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Environmental-Commitment">Environmental Commitment</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Sustainability-Commitment">Sustainability Commitment</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Creating-Safe-Environments">Creating Safe Environments</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Compliance-Integrity-and-Risk-Management">Compliance, Integrity and Risk Management</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Spotlight-on-Sustainability-at-Wabtec">Spotlight on Sustainability at Wabtec</a></td> </tr></tbody></table></div> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-8"> <h3>Innovating with Purpose</h3> <p>Wabtec’s mission to create value for our clients and other stakeholders is guided by our commitment to developing responsible and sustainable products.</p> <p>Wabtec engineers draw upon our long history of excellence in engineering and innovation to provide responsible solutions to the challenges faced today by the global freight rail and passenger transit industries.</p> <p>Our locomotives include 100 percent battery-powered locomotives, and next-generation locomotives that meet the strictest EPA emission standards, as well as leading Transit solutions that are driving the world’s shift to green.

We are committed to compliance with the environmental, health and safety (EHS) laws and regulations in the places where we operate. We also endeavor to continuously improve and foster a culture that mitigates hazards and results in zero accidents.</p> <p>In the spirit of continuous improvement, we implemented a new EHS management system in 2020 – Wabtec Management System for Safe Environments (WMS). The WMS establishes a set of standardized EHS program expectations utilizing Gensuite’s Framework Scorecard. It includes 13 core elements, including leadership &amp; accountability, regulatory applicability, EHS process &amp; systems, risk assessment, safety defenses, exposure defenses, environmental defenses, and contractor management. We plan to validate and measure our operational sites against these EHS program expectations. In addition to the WMS, Wabtec utilizes a series of core requirements to outline the key elements that our operations teams must plan, do, check and act in critical areas of health and safety, such as machine safety, electrical safety, lifting operations, forklift and material handling, among others.</p> <p>Lastly, an important aspect of our EHS culture is training and people development. Our primary training focus is to enable our employees to do their jobs safely. We offer hundreds of training courses each year, which are delivered in person, online and via videos from Wabtec’s Learning Management System. Wabtec also seeks to develop the technical and leadership skills of its EHS professionals through formal skills and competency training, as well as varied work experience to provide growth opportunities. Lastly, we strive to increase operational accountability at all levels from frontline supervisors to senior leaders. Our focus areas include hazard recognition, risk reduction and employee engagement.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 26 Jun 2020 17:07:54 +0000 Lainie 1281 at https://www.wabteccorp.com Compliance, Integrity and Risk Management https://www.wabteccorp.com/Sustainability/Compliance-Integrity-and-Risk-Management <span>Compliance, Integrity and Risk Management</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/116" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Lainie</span></span> <span>Fri, 06/26/2020 - 17:06</span> <div class="slider-section"> <div class="img-wrapper" style="background-image: url('/sites/default/files/2020-06/Wabtec-Compliance-Integrity-and-Risk-Management.png');"></div> </div> <div class="container-fluid"> <p> </p> <div class="row"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-4"> <table class="table" style="margin-top:20px; width:auto;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Driving-a-More-Sustainable-Future">Driving a More Sustainable Future</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Innovating-with-Purpose">Innovating with Purpose</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Reducing-the-Environmental-Footprint-of-Operations">Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Operations</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Empowering-People-and-Communities">Empowering People and Communities</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Environmental-Commitment">Environmental Commitment</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Sustainability-Commitment">Sustainability Commitment</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Creating-Safe-Environments">Creating Safe Environments</a></td> </tr><tr style="background-color:#f1f1f1;"><td><a href="/Sustainability/Compliance-Integrity-and-Risk-Management">Compliance, Integrity and Risk Management</a></td> </tr><tr><td><a href="/Sustainability/Spotlight-on-Sustainability-at-Wabtec">Spotlight on Sustainability at Wabtec</a></td> </tr></tbody></table></div> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-8"> <h3>Compliance, Integrity and Risk Management</h3> <p>At Wabtec, we have a proud history of excellence and high ethical standards.

We manage operational, strategic, financial and compliance risk in several ways, including but not limited to the Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program and Wabtec’s compliance program.</p> <p>Each year, we conduct a comprehensive and rigorous enterprise risk assessment by reviewing risk information from multiple sources, including business units. To better inform our decision making, we evaluate risks at the business unit and enterprise levels. Reporting metrics and data are regularly reviewed by management, including Compliance, HR, Legal and Internal Audit, as well as summary reporting metrics are shared with Wabtec’s Board of Directors. </p> <p>The results of this ERM risk assessment are incorporated into future action plans to mitigate the identified risks. Compliance risks are also reviewed as part of the ERM risk assessment process and are managed as part of Wabtec’s compliance program. These risks cover a broad range of issues, including legal and regulatory compliance. The compliance program establishes enterprise-level compliance expectations. Business managers implement controls and processes to meet those requirements with the support of compliance professionals, legal personnel and subject matter advisors with specific expertise. These efforts are enhanced by regular communications, in-person and online training and annual assessment processes. Through these programs, Wabtec can better manage risk and gauge the potential impact of various outcomes on our ability to achieve strategic goals.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 26 Jun 2020 17:06:37 +0000 Lainie 1276 at https://www.wabteccorp.com
