CSR

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

 MP Trans is a transport company in which we believe in such values as hard work, high quality of our services, customer satisfaction and constant pursuit of excellence. MP Trans is based on shaping the balance between society, economy and natural resources. While ensuring constant economic progress, we endeavour to address the needs of the modern society without forgetting the needs of the future generations.

The MP Trans is designed to provide the fastest, safest, and highest quality transportation services, while delivering the goods at a place and time convenient for the recipient. Thanks to our experience, our own car fleet and extensive network of contacts, we are able to provide our customers with comprehensive road transport services. From economic solutions based on consolidation lines to dedicated solutions for critical transport.

Care for the environment manifests itself at every stage of the implementation of the projects of MP Trans – from purchasing, auditing of suppliers and contractors, to the implementation of innovative, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly technologies. We believe that our attention to environmental aspects has a direct impact on both the economic efficiency of the Company and the economic development of the country.

Environmental protection is an important issue that cannot be considered separately from the work of the whole Company. Environmental policy is one of its priorities. The current unfavourable state of the fauna is largely due to inefficient use of natural resources. This is a result of inconsistent environmental policy, ignoring adopted environmental laws and programmes, underestimating the importance of activities aimed at protecting the environment, which in turn deteriorates human living conditions. Improvement of human living conditions achievable by obtaining economic profit and remaining in harmony with the natural environment is the aim of the environmental policy of MP Trans. Caring for the environment is a moral obligation towards future generations.

Transport Company MP Trans pursues a well-thought-out ecological and economic policy, which combines the objectives of the Company’s development and rational implementation of environmental activities, protection of resources and introduction of environmental management.

At MP Trans, we respect national and EU laws and implement procedures and methods of conduct that are necessary for consistent management in accordance with environmental protection principles.

We put all our efforts to ensure that all employees know and respect the Company’s environmental policy and are aware that they too are responsible for its effective implementation. Promoting pro-ecological principles among employees creates an additional opportunity to transfer them into private life and further spread the idea of pro-ecological perception of the world. For MP Trans it is an unquestionable proof of the validity and economic usefulness of the implemented organisational solutions.

In MP Trans we are aware that being environment-friendly has also other benefits: social approval of the Company’s activities, improving the Company’s reputation among customers and increasing its credibility among its partners, employee motivation, minimising company costs (e.g. by reducing the amount of generated waste and the cost of its disposal, reducing pollution, etc.), tightening of environmental standards, increasing work safety in the Company, creating new products and technologies, and even new markets based on environmentally friendly processes.

The environmental policy in MP Trans is implemented through:

  • reduction of vehicle exhaust emissions, such as nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide and other gases during transport;
  • noise reduction, which is formed during the use of road transport for cargo transport;
  • involvement of modern car fleet in transport – the standard must correspond to the level not lower than Euro-5. The introduction of the Euro-6 standard
    is undoubtedly a step forward in minimising the damage caused by transport companies and truck manufacturers;
  • usage of modern ecological fuel, and its saving through ecological driving
    – minimizing the work of a car at idling speed, reducing the amount of consumed fuel;
  • reduction of energy consumption, raw materials and components
    by introducing the use of modern raw materials and components of ecological nature;
  • maintaining vehicles in very good condition;
  • systematic servicing of vehicles;
  • usage of ecological tires that reduce harmful emissions to the atmosphere
    by preventing energy loss when turning the tire, also ensuring low rolling resistance;
  • shortening the time of cargo transportation through rational transport decisions implemented through the introduction of systematic control of the transportation process, preliminary route planning, exclusion of empty vehicle runs;
  • proper preparation of vehicles for the transport of dangerous substances;
  • increasing the Company’s environmental social responsibility;
  • reducing water and energy consumption;
  • reducing the emission of pollutants into the air and water;
  • economic use of by-products and waste and reducing the amount of treated waste,
  • permanent reduction of the negative environmental impact related to the following direct environmental aspects: production of waste paper, municipal waste, waste electrical and electronic equipment, toners and cartridges and hazardous waste in the form of used fluorescent lamps, batteries and parts of electrical and electronic equipment, as well as gas and electricity consumption, water consumption and waste water discharge, threat of serious accidents
    in case of infrastructure failure and gas emissions from boiler rooms and Company cars;
  • scrap segregation;
  • storage of hazardous substances and waste on hardened and roofed areas
    in appropriate containers;
  • transferring waste only to specialized companies for disposal/recovery;
  • application of fire protection (proper arrangement and legalization
    of extinguishers);
  • systematic inspections of the installations (e.g. heating, air conditioning);
  • Company’s compliance with environmental laws in its operations;
  • participation of all Company’s personnel in activities aimed at risk reduction, continuous improvement of environmental activities and environmental management system;
  • active interaction with civil society representatives who have an interest
    in environmental safety;
  • control of the use of natural resources that the Company uses in its daily work, e.g. introduction of energy saving (use of energy-saving light bulbs etc.); use of ecological paper;
  • acting within the framework of the applicable law on the protection of the environment
  • and, where possible, setting higher requirements;
  • assessing, at the decision-making stage, the potential environmental impact of new activities.

POLICY ON FORCED LABOUR AND  HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Forced labour and human trafficking are contrary to the practices and beliefs of MP TRANS Marcin Pitera. None of the activities that have the characteristics of forced labour and human trafficking are and will be acceptable to MP TRANS its senior management and employees.

To define the concept of forced labour and trafficking in human beings, the definition contained in the Palermo Protocol was used; to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children, supplemented by the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organised Crime, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 15 November 2000.

Article 3, paragraph (a):

“trafficking in persons shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.”

In addition, Article 3(b) states that:

“the consent of a victim of trafficking in human beings to the intended use (…)
is irrelevant if any of the definitions of methods listed in have been used. However, the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of a child for the purpose of exploitation shall be considered trafficking in persons, even if it does not include any of the methods referred to in this definition (Article 3 (c).

Acts having the characteristics of the above actions and situations are absolutely forbidden in MP TRANS Marcin Pitera.

Due to the specificity of MP TRANS company’s business, a particular area of interest are problems related to the movement of illegal immigrants.
