Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE)

The well-being of our employees, the public and the environment are a top priority for Skytanking. We are aware of the special care required for handling aviation fuel at airports.

Skytanking’s HSSE policy sets out the guiding HSSE principles for our company. We put the HSSE policy into practice via an HSSE Management System that is implemented at each Skytanking location in compliance with local regulations and our own corporate standards.

We are always working on ways to improve our HSSE performance in a complex operating environment. Regular audits and inspections by our headquarters HSSE team and knowledge sharing throughout our network allow us to do that.

The larger Marquard & Bahls companies, including Skytanking, have designated local HSSE manager to supervise all HSSE-related topics and questions. A separate Team Sustainability within the Group Function HSSE pools all related activities and further develops them in close coordination with the divisions and the local HSSE managers.

Skytanking also operates airport tank terminals for storing jet fuel. In-house standards, which often far exceed the statutory requirements, are part of our HSSE management system. To ensure professional support in the event of major oil spills, the holding company Marquard & Bahls is a shareholder in Oil Spill Response Limited, the world’s largest oil spill response organization.
