To achieve continued improvement in environmental performance, Valero's robust Environmental Management System goes beyond compliance and has helped drive down environmental events to record lows. It has three major components:
Commitment to Excellence Management Systems (CTEMS): A proprietary systematic approach that involves internal investigation and remediation following any environmental incident.
Fuels Management System: New operational safeguards, software, auditing and protocols, and more uniformity across our labs and other processes.
Environmental Excellence and Risk Assessment Program: A new program that proactively manages environmental risk, minimizing negative impacts to the community and employees.
