Vopak currently operates storage terminals in 31 countries, involving thousands of people, directly as well as indirectly, and large plots of land. This brings with it responsibilities for the surroundings, not just with respect to soil, water and air, but also towards the local communities and neighbors. Vopak aims to be a responsible neighbor.
Our objective is to further reduce emissions, including those of gas and odor. In pursuing this objective, we consistently adhere to guidelines set out in operating licenses, legislation and our own global standards. Vopak acknowledges that taking measures aimed at curbing emissions may sometimes be in conflict with energy consumption, as some environmental measures require the use of energy. We aim to strike the right balance in this respect.
