This includes taking the utmost care in the loading and unloading of products, in order to protect our staff, the environment and neighbouring communities.
In the preparation of new projects, environmental impact assessments are systematically carried out, while audits are regularly performed on existing installations.
Similarly, when we acquire new assets, thorough environmental assessments are conducted as part of our due diligence and we make the necessary investments, post-acquisition, to ensure that the acquired sites are brought into line with internationally recognised standards.
