Evan Xu, Environment / Health / Safety Manager
Geberit Plumbing Technology Shanghai Co. Ltd., China
Following my studies as an environmental engineer, I first set up the EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) system for occupational safety and environmental protection at a company in Shanghai in my capacity as a management consultant.
For a long time I had already been aware of Geberit because of its traditional company history, its familiar brand name and its good corporate culture. I started as EHS Manager in 2008. Because Geberit is resolute in its commitment to sustainability, we make sure that the EHS system functions and that we are in compliance with requirements regarding occupational safety and environmental protection.
My area of responsibility includes the maintenance and improvement of the EHS system, Internal Audit, the education of new employees in EHS and fire prevention. Before new products are developed, I organize Eco-Design workshops with any involved colleagues on a regular basis and communicate with government agency representatives on improvements in occupational safety and environmental protection. What I like most about my work is that I can contribute to Geberit practicing sustainable production and being a role model.
