Eastman maintains a corporate crisis management plan (CCMP) and corporate crisis management team (CCMT) to respond to crises involving the company’s worldwide assets, businesses and reputation. The purpose of Eastman’s CCMP is to identify, address and manage incidents that have the potential of becoming a crisis. The program consists of a corporate plan, crisis support teams, plans for corporate staff functions, regional and local crisis management teams, and plans for all manufacturing sites and business offices. Each geographic area and crisis management level trains for crisis events specific to their respective roles and situations.
Additionally, each Eastman manufacturing facility, as well as many of our largest geographic regions, has a local emergency response plan for manufacturing incidents and conducts regular drills on situational incidents such as fire, spills and life safety emergencies.
