The CLH Group’s CSR Report earns the GRI “Materiality Disclosures” mark

  • The report was prepared in accordance with the principles of the GRI's G4 framework, under the comprehensive option

The CLH Group has published its 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which informs its stakeholders about the Group's main financial, social and environmental activities, for the ninth year in a row.

Regarding financial issues, the report highlights the company's investments in 2015, which came to a total of over EUR 209 million and were allocated to enhancing its infrastructures in Spain and continuing the international projects undertaken in Oman and the UK.

In the field of human resources, the CLH Group joined the #miempresaconcilia programme, while also continuing its efforts in diverse safety campaigns and programmes, allowing it to end the year with an accident rate below the industry average.

In relation to the environment, the company renewed its EMAS certification at six facilities and approved a biodiversity policy. Furthermore, it must be pointed out that use of the pipeline network for transporting fuel prevented the release of 370,000 tons of CO2 per year, which would be the equivalent emissions caused if other means of transport were used.

As concerns its commitment to society, CLH continued to progress on its social action plan, which includes promoting voluntary actions among the people at the company and participation in projects that offer support to entrepreneurs.

All of this has contributed to the receipt of several awards from different national and international bodies, such as the High Commissioner for Marca España, the Club for Excellence in Management, the Energy Agency and RobecoSAM.

The CSR Report was prepared in accordance with the principles of the Global Reporting Initiative's comprehensive option of the G4 framework, the most demanding of the GRI guidelines, and has earned the “Materiality Disclosures” mark in recognition of the company's efforts to perform a broad, transparent and accurate materiality analysis.

Moreover, the contents of the report have been verified externally by an independent firm, which has confirmed that the information contained is accurate, was obtained by reliable means and is supported by the relevant documents.

The CLH Group has also published an Executive Summary, which contains the main indicators from each chapter. This document, along with the full CSR Report and the company's other annual reports, is available on the CLH website, www.clh.es.
