We acknowledge that the planet is not a never-ending fountain of resources which mankind can use and transform and that it is a life support in the many forms it takes. It also offers services, such as contact with nature, with immeasurable value for our health and well-being. Besides this, conservation of the environment is fundamental to ensure that future generations will be able to benefit from the same opportunities we have today.
Land, water, energy resources, biodiversity and the atmosphere are essential components of a single unit – the environment – and, as such, in order to conserve them we need to develop strategies and to adopt integrated management practices.
A Within the context of our activities, environmental protection is the responsibility of all Galp Energia employees and service providers. The corporate policies and standards set out the management guidelines which are reflected throughout the various levels of the organization. This is because the sum of the combined small efforts of each individual is a much greater whole.
