Health, safety and environment are key priorities for us and serve as a framework for every action and decision we make, irrespective of the type of activity.

  • Reduction of environmental impact.

To achieve these goals and to ensure the maximum compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, we must create a health, safety and environment management system based on established standards.
