Tristar Transport recently launched its second Sustainability Report at the Dubai Chamber during the Best Practice Seminar on Road Safety.
The seminar was organised by the chamber’s Centre for Responsible Business whose objective is to engage the Dubai business community in assuming greater responsibility for the emirate’s social and environmental needs.
The Dubai-based integrated liquid logistics company, which serves the petroleum and chemicals industries, has implemented a campaign with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the UK-based Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to raise the level of awareness of heavy duty drivers on defensive driving and the causes of road accidents.
Tristar’s sustainability report describes the company’s overall sustainability approach and its efforts toward driving health and safety, enhancing employee well-being, reducing environmental impact and contributing to community development.
“For this report we have decided to use the theme ‘Working together for a better tomorrow’ as it reflects on our commitment to conduct our business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner,” expressed Tristar Group CEO Eugene Mayne.
The second report covered the company’s operations in 2013 in Qatar, Oman and Kuwait, in addition to the UAE which was the sole focus of last year’s report.
Tristar now operates in 14 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Central America.
Mayne added: “I am particularly proud of our performance in 2013 were we accomplished another year of operations with zero fatalities and zero spills. I am also proud of our people’s efforts in helping local communities in Africa, Asia and Central America.”
