Potential environmental impacts from our activities fall mainly in the following areas:
Taking a systematic approach We operate an environmental management system which meets the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001. This provides a systematic approach to managing environmental impacts and minimizing them wherever possible. We have mapped the system elements against the requirements of our operating management system to check they remain suitable, adequate, and effective.
Complying with legislation Our compliance management system is an important tool in our drive to achieve safe, reliable and compliant operations. It enables us to identify relevant legislation, assess its applicability, examine controls and assign actions. For new projects, we carry out environmental impact assessments to assess potential impacts and define mitigation measures.
