Consolidating a Culture of Safety on our Sites

A specific Safety Culture Improvement Team, created in 2006, supports sites that are identified as “most help needed” sites, and provides orientation for new acquisitions. The orientation topics go beyond safety. They include the environment, Sustainable Development issues and compliance with the Code of Conduct. Corrective measures that are recommended to these sites are tracked to closure. In 2009, the team supported 7 of our sites.

Our Sustainable Development policy supports the Group’s long-term strategy. Actions are guided by a three-year plan that sets goals for each of our areas of activity. The three-year plan also provides for gradual, continuous performance improvement.

Environmental focus

We work to reduce our environmental impact and use natural resources efficiently. We control our activities’ impact on the environment and set up management systems that allow us to improve our performance continuously.

Social Focus

Health and Safety, Human Resources, Ethic, and dialogue with our neighboring communities are among our main corporate social responsibility priorities.
