TEPSA certified by EMAS Regulation12.11.2007
On 12 November 2007, TEPSA successfully completed the process of verification of their Environmental Management System in accordance with the requirements specified in the European Regulation 761/2001, EMAS II Regulation, which is currently implemented at all terminals run by the company in Barcelona, Bilbao, Tarragona and Valencia.
As was the case with other certification processes, AENOR was the agency that verified the Environmental Management System and validated TEPSA’s Environmental Declarations.
The most significant aspect of the adaptation of the Environmental Management System to the EMAS II European Regulation was the publication of the Environmental Declarations, which provides transparency to the company’s system and demonstrates their willingness to disclose all short-term improvement programs and environmental aspects.
The company is constantly concerned for environmental and community affairs and this is implicit in each and all operations it carries out under strict compliance with the environmental law. Every year, objectives and targets are set for the purpose of cutting down consumption of energy and other products, reducing waste to a minimum, and improving our liquid effluents and atmospheric emissions. In addition, the company invests regularly on cleaner technologies and effective treatment systems.
TEPSA, the leader in Quality, Safety and Environmental certifications
TEPSA has always taken the initiative to ensure that their terminals are managed in accordance with the highest Quality, Occupational Health & Safety and Environmental standards.
Evidence of this is the fact that TEPSA was the first storage terminal company to be granted the ISO 9000/2000 Quality certificate, and is also the only company that endorses the “Commitment to Progress” (since 2001), the first ever to obtain the Environmental ISO 14001 certification and to submit to European-level Quality, Safety, Hygiene and Environmental audits conducted by the CDI-T (Chemical Distribution Institute Terminals).
TEPSA’s purpose is to tackle successfully not only their own challenges but also those in connection with the environment and any operational issues brought up by their clients.
