Grupa Azoty S.A. is one of the largest companies of the chemical sector in Poland, belonging to the Great Chemical Synthesis group
Care for the natural environment, activities aimed at reducing the environmental impact on the Company’s surroundings and an open information policy, are priorities for Zakłady Azotowe w Tarnowie-Mościcach S.A. (trade name Azoty Tarnów). The Company’s participation in the "Responsible Care" programme since 1994 confirms the pro-environmental policy pursued for many years. In July 1994, Azoty Tarnów signed a declaration to voluntarily join this pro-environmental programme, implemented by chemical companies throughout the world. At that time, the company undertook a series of tasks aiming at reducing the burden it placed on the natural environment, improving safety and protecting employees’ health. In June 1996, the Programme’s governing body granted the Company the right to use the name and logo of the initiative, thus confirming that the requirements of the "Responsible Care" Programme had been met. Azoty Tarnów has been holding the "Responsible Care" Programme Certificate since 1999. From the time when the Company joined the "Responsible Care" Programme, many pro-environmental measures have been implemented. Their adoption has had a measurable environmental impact. The Company’s orientation towards responsible care is also expressed by the fact that it meets all legal requirements and takes care to project a positive social image. The "Responsible Care" Programme, due to its aim of continual improvement, requires the Company to make further improvements in the future. The Company takes this into account in planning its future activities. Adherence to the principles and guidelines of the "Responsible Care" Programme is one of the prime commitments in the current MANAGEMENT POLICY. The tasks to be realized form part of the annual "Responsible Care" Programme Declaration. The Company is publicly accountable for tasks undertaken within the framework of the "Responsible Care" Programme. The achievements of the "Responsible Care" Programme, as well as a presentation of selected tasks undertaken during the decade of the Programme’s implementation, can be found in the "Environmental Report - 10 years of Implementing the Responsible Care Programme", published by the Company. Additional information concerning the Programme is available in the current Environmental Report.
