Safeguarding the environment is the essential component that enables sustainable development of our activities.
Protecting the environment is fundamental in implementing our sustainability strategy.
We operate in accordance with the law, international agreements and standards as well as national regulations and policies. The way we manage the environment, air and land is based on criteria of prevention, protection, information and participation, as is our protection of biodiversity and water resources. We manage the waste produced by our activities through process traceability and control over the entire supply chain. We are committed to boosting technological innovation and monitoring tools to prevent and reduce hydrocarbon spills. We use the most advanced technologies and technical standards for health, safety and the environment in all of our activities. Our HSE management (Health, Safety and Environment) is governed by the HSE Management System Guidelines, which allow us to protect people and communities, prevent safety risks and mitigate any impact on the environment. We believe in research and technological innovation that focuses on optimising processes and we carry out innovative projects with the best characteristics in terms of safeguarding people’s health and safety.

We believe it is time to invest in a system that optimises the production of goods by reducing the exploitation and disposal of resources. We work every day with respect for the environment, converting waste into biofuels, transforming refineries into bio-refineries and reclaiming existing assets. In order to move beyond the culture of waste, we have also launched many research projects to transform chemical elements into biomass that can be reused in industry and in society.
