This is built on a sound H&S culture. Our commitment is to conduct our operations with the goal of ‘zero harm’, providing safe and secure working conditions for our employees and contractors
Visible Personal Commitment (VPC) is a proven technique we employ in our approach to H&S. Managers are visible in their business units, achieving 27 600 hrs of visible personal commitment in the field. These hours, captured with the use of the Boots on the Ground (BoG) app have greatly contributed to the exceptionally strong H&S performance we continue to achieve.
We are committed to addressing environmental and climate change issues by reducing our energy consumption, CO₂ emissions, and water management. In addition, we dedicate to always preserving the natural habitats and their biodiversity, in the areas where our plants are located.
The commitment to safeguarding water is an integral part of our sustainability strategy. We recognize access to water as a right and promote initiatives to reduce the risk of water supply, especially in the most vulnerable areas.
Water supply is considered in the risk / opportunity assessment of our activities. Because of this, we promote efficient water management practices, through (but not limited to) recycling / reuse, and the minimization of freshwater collections.
