Environmental Protection, Health and Safety

Environmental management is carried out in accordance with the fundamental laws of Environmental Protection (Environmental Protection Act, Waste Act, Water Act, Air Protection Act, Soil Conservation Act, etc.), as well as in compliance with the environmental management policy adopted by the Agrokor Group in June 2006.  
 
Accordingly, PIK Vrbovec has an environmental management system according to the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001 since July 2007 and is approaching the high requirements and regulations of the EU and other international markets.
In March 2009, a company Bureau Veritas conducted a certification audit after which PIK Vrbove has added an occupational health and safety system OHSAS to the portfolio of previous confirmation of high standards and management systems.
