Once the projects are approved and are in the operation phase, and the industrial plants are in operation, the company is responsible for rigorously complying with the different regulations and legal obligations, commitments, and certifications assumed, preventing and managing environmental aspects, impacts, and risks, and generating capacities that ensure operational excellence and continuity.
