Social responsibility is a Glatfelter Core Value, and we have a consistent record of following through on our commitments. That’s why Glatfelter invests in the well-being of our employees, our customers and communities around the globe.
Fostering a Culture of Health and Safety
Our commitment to safety spans more than 150 years. In the 1920’s, Glatfelter established an internal safety organization with 100% employee participation. We used this group as a platform to continue to grow our safety program. Today, we have a well-established safety management system, ongoing employee wellness programs and coordinated training efforts.
Glatfelter sites are striving to be “injury-free every day” through implementation of our Global Health & Safety Policy, a focus on regulatory compliance, site-specific safety plans and safety resources, and an ongoing risk assessment and safety auditing program.
We track more than a half-dozen critical safety metrics, including Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR). Glatfelter completed 2019 with a TCIR of 0.74. With every injury-free day that passes, we get closer to earning world-class safety performance.
Commitment to our Communities
Through philanthropy and volunteerism, Glatfelter impacts many communities, and many countries, in positive ways, helping to ensure the sustainability of our business, employees, customers, and fellow world residents. We believe our efforts help improve the quality of life for the communities in which we live and work, and we value the relationships we have built throughout the years.
We give back to our communities through philanthropy, volunteer work and other charitable initiatives. To request a contribution or get more information about Glatfelter’s Charitable Giving Program, please contact us.
