Environmental aspects of our sustainable development are measured and managed with indicators that reflect the environmental footprint of our own activities (gas stations, petroleum products and LPG depots, wastewater treatment plants, biogas plants, office buildings, etc.) and indicators showing the contribution of our activities to the environment more friendly footprint of other subjects of the wider society.
We regularly carry out monitoring of wastewater, emissions of substances into the air, sources of noise, control of the tightness of the tanks and the quality of fuels. We also carry out the monitoring of the treatment of biodegradable waste and assessing waste. To monitor the operation and management of biological processes in the treatment plants and biogas plants, daily measurements of individual parameters are carried out, which ensures efficient process control and the possibility of reducing the environmental burden.
Strategic sustainability indicators are measured and managed annually. In assessing the environmental aspects, the Petrol Group experts from several areas are involved at least every three years, or in case of major changes in legislation, environmental policy or in the event of a change in the opinion of the interested public. In managing important environmental aspects and indicators, we also work with suppliers and contract partners.
Every two years, we prepare an autonomous sustainable report in which we are reporting the indicators in accordance with the GRI-4 and GRI standards (see the Petrol Sustainability Report 2016).
