The aim of our Safety, Health and Environment Policy is to minimize the impact on the environment and the effects on climate change, respecting biodiversity and local communities.
All our Repsol’s Chemicals Division operating centres have environmental management systems certified according to UNE EN ISO 14001: 2004, involving more stringent commitments than those established by law in each place. Their purpose is to reduce and manage environmental risks and promote the most efficient use of natural resources. We review these programmes each year and adapt them to achieve the objectives set. Our goal is to:
- Minimise odours and noise emissions.
- Reduce the pollutant content of waste.
- Minimise waste, and its proper segregation and management.
- Proper management of biodiversity.
- Optimise consumption of natural resources.
- Reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and improve energy efficiency.
Proof of all this is Repsol’s signature of the historic Treaty of Paris on December 12, 2015 "Paris pledge for action", by which we support and work for our company to be a part of the solution to the climate change problem. With the same objective we have joined OGCI (Oil and Gas Climate Initiative), in which, along with ten other companies in the sector, we coordinate our actions and intensify our investments to combat climate change.
We recognize that the objective of limiting the increase in global temperature of the planet to 2ºC is a challenge for society and we accept our part in this challenge.
During 2015 we implemented an Energy Management System according to the requirements of International Standard ISO 50001 in the Industrial Chemical Complex area of Tarragona.
We also consider it a priority to participate and collaborate with specialised sectorial associations and organisations such as FEIQUE or CEFIC, among others in order to ensure that our activity is in line with the industry’s best practices.
Our commitment is to win the trust of the societies in which we are present, by understanding their needs and displaying a behaviour which is attuned to their wellbeing.
