- Since the virus first began to spread, the company has been working in constant coordination with the authorities of the different countries in which it operates
Cepsa is meeting the needs of customers of company-managed Service Stations in Spain and Portugal by implementing a self-service basis with the aim of preventing the spread of the Covid-19 virus among its customers, staff and suppliers.
Also, as preventive measures in its stores, products will be sold through a service window, and the outside restrooms of stations have been closed.
These measures will remain in place for at least the next two weeks. In any event, Cepsa Service Stations will stay open to ensure the supply of fuel, butane and propane bottles and basic goods.
Juan Antonio Vera, Cepsa’s Chief Operating Officer, points out: “Our employees and customers are our top priority at all times. The company will continue to provide them the energy solutions they need. For this reason, we have launched a package of measures and Cepsa management is constantly monitoring the situation to ensure an appropriate response that will protect people’s health, ensure the energy supply and help stop the spread of the virus.”
Cepsa’s businesses continue to operate their plants and industrial assets and meet the demands of their clients, and they have contingency plans in place to ensure continuity of supply.
Also, the company has put in place work-life balance measures (remote working and flexible hours, among others) for its office employees in Spain and Portugal for the next two weeks. It has reinforced cleaning procedures at all its centers, especially at points of sale, and canceled travel, training activities and conventions and all visits to its industrial facilities. Only the people necessary to ensure people’s safety and to minimize the environmental impact are now present at these facilities.
Since the virus first began to spread, the company has been working in constant coordination with the health authorities in the different countries in which it operates, following their instructions to help stop the spread of the virus and ensure the energy supply.
