Environment protection management system

The Agrokor Group based its policies on organized system management according to the principles of sustainable growth and excellence. Environment protection represents a significant segment of management systems integrated in Agrokor and it is a part of every strategic decision and business process. Agrokor has a strict approach to environment and sustainability and it is considered a civilization starting point, alongside social and economic area of activities and responsibly promotes the concept of sustainable development.

We recognize the influence our activities, products and services have on the environment and we monitor them systematically. Our economic growth is inseparably linked with our professional and responsible attitude towards environment protection. Systematic management of environment protection and energy efficiency are focused on two strategic points:

  • to permanently improve environmental value and energy efficiency and

  • to prevent and reduce all types of pollution in immediate, wider and global surroundings

Today, 21 of Agrokor’s companies have integrated environment protection management systems with ISO 14001 international certificates, five companies have integrated energy efficiency management systems and are certified with ISO 50001, while 5 companies have a complementary health and work safety management system and OHSAS 18001 certificates. Professional environment protection has positive results and gives constant improvements that are confirmed by achieving short-term and long-term goals:

  • reducing the negative effects to the environment (reduced waste quantities, reduction in raw material, water and energy source expenditure per production/sales unit)
  • increasing safety as well as the level of knowledge, awareness and responsibility of all employees
