Furthermore, it is committed to conducting business in a manner that is compatible with the balanced environmental and economic needs of the communities in which it operates. This commitment requires compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, facilities that are designed and operated to a high standard and the systematic identification and management of safety, security, health, and environmental risks.
These commitments are documented in the safety, health, environmental, product safety and security policies of the Operator.
