Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer
Avaya is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our employees, as well as the environment and communities in which we operate. As part of this commitment, Avaya has a documented Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) policy, signed by Pam Craven, our Chief Administrative Officer. This policy governs how our operations and locations function in support of this commitment. The Avaya Global Environmental, Health and Safety (GEH&S) Organization is responsible for facilitating Avaya‘s adherence to this commitment by supporting Avaya‘s Facility Management teams, the Services Organization, and all Avaya employees in addressing relevant EH&S issues and activities. The following sections highlight some of those activities that Avaya is doing from an infrastructure perspective which reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship.
- Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) Management:
- EHS Management System (EHSMS);
- EHSMS Committees;
- Support of Facilities Management.
- Environmental Performance:
- Avaya Infrastructure Data and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions calculating;
- Compliance Performance Evaluations (CPEs).
EHS Management System (EHSMS)
Avaya operates a global Environmental, Health and Safety Management System (EHSMS). This is a continuous improvement approach which utilizes the standard ISO model - Plan -> Implement (Do) -> Check -> Review (Act) - to ensure the proper management of EH&S risks associated with our locations and services operations. The Avaya EHSMS is a self-service model for locations to systematically and consistently manage administrative EH&S issues. This approach allows Avaya to economically manage these risks while improving performance, reducing adverse impacts to the environment, providing a safe and productive workplace, and ensuring compliance with global regulatory requirements.
