The UCB Corporate Health, Safety & Environment (HS&E) and Corporate Societal Responsibility (CSR) departments are responsible for ensuring that all data are consolidated on the basis of information provided by the manufacturing and research sites as well as affiliates and administrative sites throughout the world.

Country HS&E coordinators perform an initial validation of safety and environmental data prior to the consolidation at corporate level.

Corporate HS&E and CSR also verify data consistency during consolidation. These validations include data comparisons from previous years as well as a careful analysis of any significant discrepancies.

Social data regarding the workforce are extracted from Global IT Human Resources systems used as management control database for UCB worldwide.
