The company will work on reducing energy consumption by replacing its equipment with more efficient devices, incorporating new technological developments and purchasing renewable power or generating it from its facilities.
• CLH20. This section seeks to reduce water consumption, especially in the cleaning of storage tanks and in the testing of firefighting equipment.
• Natural services. This consists of achieving zero impact on ecosystems that may be affected by CLH's operations, by developing measures for restoration or remediation if necessary.
In addition, the company has recently launched two new projects aimed at contributing to more sustainable development in terms of the use of hydrogen and the recycling of plastic waste to product liquid fuel.
The strategy is part of the company's ongoing commitment to focus on the sustainable development of its activities. The company has a strict environmental management system that includes policies and programmes aimed at guaranteeing sustainability in all its operations.
