TAP Maintenance & Engineering is committed to conducting its activities in a sustainable manner and ensuring environmental concerns play a role in the company's growth strategy. Mindful that sustainable development is only possible through the balance of economic, social, and environmental forces, TAP M&E promotes environmental awareness through training and concrete measures aimed at reducing pollution.
Environmental concerns have been part of our company culture since the 1970s when we began operating our Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant. In the 1990s we introduced improvements in solid waste management with the goal to promote reuse, recycling, and energy recovering of solid waste, thus avoiding landfill disposal. In the 2000s environmental issues were also taken into account when building new infrastructures that have since become benchmarks for sustainable design. In 2008, TAP M&E's Engine Shop obtained an Environmental Permit from the Portuguese Environmental Agency certifying our plating shop is compliant with European and Portuguese laws concerning the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Act.
Our current environmental strategy is focused on minimising our environmental impact. In order to achieve that, we’re adopting more eco-friendly products and developing a Responsible Energy Consumption Plan. We also monitor our consumption of water and raw materials to ensure reasonable usage and the wellbeing of present and future generations.
