Health, Safety, Environment, Human Rights and Communities (HSEC)

We are committed to ensuring that HSEC is an integral business consideration and that our operations should be safe for employees, contractors, neighbouring communities and the environment.

Vitol has always been focused on the safety and environmental controls relating to the movement of commodities, shipping and operations and their potential impact on local communities. Over the last few years we have invested in a number of physical assets, some owned directly and some via partnerships. To ensure a consistent standard of HSEC across the group, we have developed a HSEC Framework covering all activities. The HSEC Framework sets out Vitol’s beliefs and requirements and Vitol expects all the companies in which it has a shareholding to follow these or similar standards, but recognises that its influence will be commensurate with its shareholding, as well as other factors.
