The focus on safety, the environment and climate, through CO2 reduction, among other things, is our business model. For example, the focus and control on the driving behaviour of the drivers results in economical driving behaviour and more CO2 reduction. In short, a sustainable investment.
The QHSSE department (Quality, Health, Safety, Security and Environment, ed.) has a central position in our company with the aim of guaranteeing quality and making sustainable decisions.
Quality and safety are fully embedded in our corporate culture and our daily processes. For example through the SQAS (Safety & Quality Assessment System) assessment. In addition, we offer a lot of training and experience. In addition, much attention is also paid to corporate social responsibility.
