Brenntag continuously works on minimizing the environmental impact of its business activities on the soil, water and air. In addition to the efficient use of resources, protection of the environment therefore plays a key role for all Brenntag locations. We aim to identify environmental risks early on, to control them by means of various measures – investments in infrastructure, optimized work procedures and qualified employees – and to avoid environmental incidents.
Brenntag’s locations in all of its regions fully comply with applicable rules and regulations relating to the protection of the environment and also fulfil our Group’s stringent safety standards. Whenever new buildings or plants are constructed or necessary modernization and renovation work is undertaken, environmental protection issues are considered and reflected both in terms of the construction approach and also plant engineering. The soil and ground water situation is reviewed and recorded annually at all of our locations, in cooperation with external experts. At the same time, necessary measures are identified and implemented.
