What is Beheer doing on safety and health?

Safety is our first priority. This concerns both personal and process safety. It is our responsibility to deliver services in a safe manner, to provide a safe and healthy workplace for Beheer employees and for our contractors and to minimize any negative impact onneighborsbours. Continuously improving working conditions and monitoring the effectiveness of safety related controls are fundamental to our Safety, Health and Environmental policy.

What is Beheer doing on environmental care?

Our objectives on environmental care are to be energy and water efficient and to reduce emissions and waste. In pursuing these objectives, we consistently comply with guidelines as set out in operating licenses, legislation and our own global standards. The care for our environment is an integrated part of our ‘License to Operate’, which means that Beheer aims to minimize its impact on its surroundings and areas of biodiversity. This includes energy consumption, emissions, treatment of contaminated water, use of the surface area, and care for areas of high biodiversity.

What is Beheer doing to be a responsible partner?

Beheer wants to be a responsible partner for all its stakeholders, from customers, business partners and shareholders, to employees, local commuter, cities, and society at large. Our ambition is to be a strong link in our customers’ global value chains and a leader in our industry. We recognize our responsibility for the social, environmental and economic consequences of our activities. Beheer works with customers and suppliers to maintain long-term partnerships and ensure continuous improvement in our approach to sustainability. We aim to be the supplier of choice based on our service quality and sustainability approach. Likewise, we aim to choose suppliers whose commitment to sustainability matches our own.

 

What is Beheer ‘s policy on Human rights?

Beheer respects human rights as described in the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and accepts the responsibility to ensure that all our entities respect human rights when conducting business. Beheer screens all major investment proposals for human rights issues. Our screening is based on the country in which the project is being carried out and the characteristics of the investment proposal. The screening includes an assessment of the areas where the risks of human rights issues are high. For these projects, specific agreements are to be made between all the stakeholders in the project which detail the manner in which parties will uphold human rights. All partners, contractors, and suppliers are required to adhere explicitly to the Beheer Code of Conduct, which also covers human rights.
