The concern of APM Terminals Castellón S.A.U. for our surroundings and the environment is constant and implicit in each and every operation that is performed. For this reason, we have implemented an environmental management system that aims to contribute to the development of a more sustainable world.
In this line, APM Terminals Castellón S.A.U. celebrates every year events to raise environmental awareness, inviting all stakeholders in the port community. Last year, efforts towards raising awareness were focused on spill prevention and the application of Lean tools to improve control over company’s order and cleanup.
With the firm conviction that the actual capacity of a company is in its employees, the Company has also taught a course in 2019 for all its employees and plans to do the same in 2020, integrating environment into a continuous improvement system of its services.
APM Terminals Castellón S.A.U. has a system to ensure the identification, access, maintenance and evaluation of legal requirements and others, considered relevant and applicable to its activities.
