- This facility was the first in Spain to be listed in the European register of eco-audited centers under the EMAS scheme, which earned it the “Early Birds” distinction
- In June, for yet another year, the company made its Environmental Statement public.
Cepsa’s La Rábida Refinery in Palos de la Frontera has been recognized by the European Commission for its environmental achievements as one of the top ten organizations in Spain listed in the EMAS register, encouraging it to continue sharing its best practices and long-standing environmental commitment. Being an example of transparency with the public has earned it the “Early Birds” distinction.
The refinery first made its Environmental Statement public in 1998, with the international register of eco-audited centers under the European Regulation EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme). It was the first refinery in Spain to obtain it. For 23 years now, Cepsa has been making the statement public, not only to the media but also to stakeholders, and it has set up the e-mail account firstname.lastname@example.org for all citizens to ask questions they need answers to.
