2015-2018 ACTION PLAN: CONTINUING TO MAKE POSITIVE CHANGE
The environmental risk assessment comprises an overall vision of areas for improvement and has monitored the Group’s multi-year action plans since 2008. In 2015, Thales set targets for 2015-2018.
In 2019, a new multi-year will mobilise all of the Group’s employees and partners around new targets. For 2017, indicators are generally lower in relative value.
However, in absolute value, significant growth in the Group’s business and exceptional business at two sites had a certain environmental impact, but which still remains limited.
The main indicators for assessing improvements in Thales's environmental performance in detail are included in section 5.2.7, p. 229 of the 2017 registration document.
Managing a minimal direct impact on the environment
For years, Thales has analysed its impacts on the environment in terms of the associated risks. This analysis measures the materiality of the existing impact, ensures activity and product compliance, and anticipates the impact of new regulations. The 15 incidents that occurred in 2017 were managed to ensure they had no significant impact on health or the environment.
