Activities within these areas are measured in order to improve performance and to document progress.

Reducing our environmental footprint has become part of our overall strategy. … With regards to management and reporting, we are conducting a total revamp of our management system including environmental management to focus our efforts in the most environmentally beneficial areas.”
