We create value for people

We apply the concept of operational excellence at all levels of the company to enhance our people. We implement an inclusive policy respecting everyone's uniqueness, considering diversity as an asset, and we are committed to respecting human rights. We offer our customers products and solutions that contribute to the energy transition and work to protect the environment and biodiversity. We guarantee the safety of our plants and transparent relationships with suppliers.

    Our people play a fundamental role in the profound energy transformation underway. They are the essential component of our corporate culture and represent a key lever for value creation.

We place the dignity of every human being at the centre of our activities and are committed to defining our responsibilities in contributing to the well-being of people and local communities.
