Comments on the victory in the competition: We are grateful for the award and the acknowledgement. The award proves that the activities undertaken by the company to maintain the environment and promote renewable energy resources are acknowledged by Venstpils City Council and the jury. We have done an awful lot in recent years to reduce as much as possible the organization, renovation and insulation of objects that were energy inefficient. Also, various equipment and technology within the company’s facilities is systematically changed for renewable and more energy efficient resources. Activities that preserve the environment, improve the well-being of employees and inhabitants are acknowledged by different certification and accreditation institutions, says the Chairman of the Board Arnis Janvars.

Without a doubt, one of the most supportive activities for the environment, employees and inhabitants, which was implemented in the company in 2007, is the installation of a steam recuperation system that reduces emissions of volatile organic compounds into the air during the loading of tankers.
