Harsco launches Business System, updates Values to reflect unified strategy
Business systems are among the hallmarks of many high-performing companies. The Harsco Business System identifies five repeatable, replicable processes that enhance our business and provide a clear, specific set of roles and responsibilities for our corporate center. This system is intrinsically linked with our Harsco Values, guiding our interactions with customers, vendors, suppliers, shareholders and one another. All are centered on our Harsco Code of Conduct, which underpins ethical business practices worldwide.
