HSE Policy Statement
Go back to Health, Safety and Environment
The Group manages its activities with the highest regard for the wellbeing of people, places and the environment.
As part of its commitment to HSE Mercuria considers and focuses on the following in all of its activities:
Health and Environmental Standards (air, soil, water and waste)
Safety and Security Plans (including consideration of areas of conflict)
Regulatory Permitting (including issues of social justice and labor practices)
Mercuria participates in many commodities markets both directly as an owner, trader, supplier and indirectly as an investor.
Mercuria as a primary operator or owner:
Where Mercuria maintains direct oversight and control of day-to-day asset operations, we have developped and implemented HSE systems and procedures that ensure high operating standards and compliance with relevant rules and regulations.
Mercuria as a non-operating partner or investor:
Where Mercuria has a shared or limited interest in an asset but does not have direct oversight or control of the asset operations, Mercuria conducts an evaluation of the asset and its operation and governance, with oversight by members of Mercuria’s senior leadership prior to initial investment, and subsequently at periodic intervals.
Mercuria as a trader of physical commodities:
Where Mercuria engages in the purchase, sale, storage, transportation and transformation of physical commodities, it considers the health, safety and environmental aspects of its activities. Senior leadership is strongly involved with trading activities, and partner companies are selected with a view to helping to ensure adherence to Mercuria’s standards and principles and that all activities are carried out in accordance with the highest industry standards.
Mercuria maintains a dedicated HSE Compliance team, with individuals based around the globe.
