This paper shares an overview of how OMV was able to achieve environmental excellence in Pakistan in a remote, rural, socio-economically deprived environment.
OMV Pakistan operates in a challenging environment in the Sukkur and Khairpur districts of the province of Sindh. Major issues facing the country in general and Sindh in particular are poverty, low education levels and lack of adequate infrastructure. As is often the case with developing countries, the provision of basic social needs takes precedence over environmental considerations.
This paper describes how despite these challenges, OMV Pakistan established a worldclass environment management system at its sites in stark contrast to the external factors and the conditions just outside its perimeter.
