To avoid or reduce environmental impacts on biodiversity, in addition to continually investing in in​novation and technology, we also implement actions and measures to prevent, control and/or compensate for them.

Such initiatives are defined for all stages of the life cycle of our businesses, and encompass areas both inside and outside our operational ​units.
