Morocco’s phosphates and fertilizers company OCP was awarded for the second year in a row the International Fertilizer Association’s 2019 Industry Stewardship Gold Medal in recognition for the Group’s commitment to safety and sustainable development.
“The OCP Group has implemented substantial efforts and resources to respect the best safety standards, based on anticipation, risk prevention and the ongoing involvement of all its employees,” the Group said in a statement.
The Group has set up a safety excellence program called “Zero incidents” aiming, inter alia, to ensure employees and external subcontractors operate in safe conditions.
“The OCP Group has integrated 18 health and environmental safety standards on all its industrial sites, involving OCP’s employees and external subcontractors,” OCP said.
OCP revenues hit $5.95 billion in 2018, as the company continues to step investments beyond extraction to manufacturing customized fertilizers.
