Manufacturing in a way that takes due account of the environment and the health and safety of staff and the general population is of fundamental importance for any industrial activity.

Protecting people and the environment is therefore at the heart of Tessenderlo Group's day-to-day policy. We strive to go further than the statutory requirements. Tessenderlo Group sets aside substantial resources for this purpose every year.

High safety and environmental standards apply to the various plants of the group, including those at low risk.

To give substance to this policy, Tessenderlo Group relies on internationally recognised principles, including Responsible Care and Best Available Techniques and ISO 14001. These serve as optimisation guidelines.
