Operational Excellence

At Momentive, we view operational excellence as a never-ending pursuit of new and better ways to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, and the health and safety of our environment. To promote manufacturing safety, our employees are well versed in Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Policy. Our facilities are certified safe and have won many leading accreditations including ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001. (See all of our Accreditations.)

A Companywide Culture of Operational Excellence

At Momentive, we believe that operational excellence demands that we use all resources efficiently—not only natural resources, but human resources as well. As a result, employees’ time must always be used resourcefully; after all, every hour spent on an unproductive task is a kind of waste. That’s why, throughout the entire Momentive organization, we incorporate Six Sigma methodology, to improve business processes and to reduce errors, so that we can optimize our efficiency and thus our long-term sustainability.


The Excellence of Environmental Sustainability

To embrace operational excellence is to embrace environmental sustainability. That’s why each of our facilities tracks the resources it uses and the waste it generates, including greenhouse gases (GHG). Along the way, we look for ways to enhance efficiencies and improve sustainability, and share such advancements and Success Metrics with our global network. Additionally, as a rule, we look for opportunities to recycle our water, lessening the overall volume of clean water needed and wastewater produced.

Momentive Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Policy and Responsible Care® elements are implemented using the Momentive EHS Management System (EHS-MS). Momentive is implementing the EHS-MS globally with strategies and priorities aligned with Momentive’s obligations and improvement goals.
