Safety and environmental protection: present throughout the lifecycle of our products
At Repsol, we understand that it is essential to take into account aspects such as safety and environmental protection right from the product design phase because it is precisely at this point where their impact is determined. Our integrated management system helps us to identify potential problems, as well as control and improve prevention in all the phases of our operations.
In short, our objective is for our products to be designed, manufactured, and distributed in an environmentally responsible way. In order to achieve this, at Repsol we have established the following main lines of action:
• Innovation and development of clean technologies and new products (as in the case with Repsol biodegradable oils).
• A logistics system that uses pallets from ecologically-managed forests to distribute products.
• Waste management, by applying a reverse logistics system that includes the recycling of both used oil and containers.
At Repsol, we are committed to the environment. This is why we have assumed the chairmanship of SIGAUS (integrated management system for waste oils), an entity that collects and subsequently treats used oil of both industrial and vehicle origin.
