I.M. Skaugen recognizes the responsibility we have to treat the environment in which we operate with the utmost respect. To this end, reducing environmental impact is an imperative in our operations. Our guiding principle is that all accidents resulting in environmental harm can be prevented. That is why continuous improvement and prevention of pollution is an inherent part of all areas of our activities. We will continuously evaluate the environmental risk factor of our operations. As a major participant in the transportation sector we are actively working to minimize the environmental impact of our activities and reduce the use of energy and natural resources. We are aiming to reduce waste through efficient recycling and continuous improvement of the management of our resources.
We continue to strive for increased energy efficiency in all aspects of our operations leading to reduced fuel consumption for our fleet and lower emissions to the environment.
