Roquette’s commitment to Health and Safety

Health and Safety are fundamental to the success of our people and the sustainability of our company: it is both a question of values and of performance.

Our ultimate objective is to achieve zero incidents. We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses can be prevented.
Each person is responsible for their own safety and the safety of those around them.
We will continuously develop a safer working environment for our employees, contractors and visitors. This concerns all Group functions and everywhere we work. 

In order to achieve our objective, we will invest in actions contributing to safety through: 

  • skills and behaviours, including development of a transparent safety culture 
  • rules, procedures, regulations and management systems 
  • equipment design and technology 
  • plant safety and assets 
  • Continuous improvement. 

Safety rules and procedures are mandatory for all employees, contractors and visitors, with no exceptions. 

Managers are accountable for the safety performance of their teams and they take a leading role in promoting safety. 

We will set clear milestones, provide the relevant means and organization, and we will review our performance regularly. We count on each person’s active involvement and commitment to achieve these objectives. 

Safety is our first priority: if an action cannot be performed safely then it must not be performed.

Environment

Plant-based raw materials; land and water ecosystems; and renewable resources constitute natural capital for the Roquette Group.

One of the commitments of the Group is to minimize the impact of its industrial activities on the local and global environment, as well as to always comply with local regulations.

Deeply committed to sustainable development, Roquette applies multiple environmental best practices in order to moderate its impact on the climate and to take care of local communities through renewable energy, energy efficiency, water and air management, etc.

Moreover the company has established long-term relations with its suppliers, most of which are located close to Roquette’s factories. This helps accelerate the reduction of CO2 emissions from transport while meeting the highest quality and industrial standards.

Through continuous improvement and in all its actions, the Roquette Group demonstrates its commitment to preserving environmental capital globally and locally.
