“ONHYM” gives high priority to sustainable development and social responsibility

"ONHYM" تعطي أولوية عالية للتنمية المستدامة والمسؤولية الاجتماعية

In line with the desires affirmed by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may God protect him, all sectoral development projects are part of a sustainable development strategy that promotes the balance between environmental, economic and social dimensions.

Its goals are to improve the living conditions of citizens, strengthen sustainable management of natural resources, and promote environmentally friendly economic activities.

As part of its commitment to continuous improvement, ONHYM strictly adheres to the regulations applicable to its activities and develops performance standards in line with international best practices in the hydrocarbon and mining industry. In terms of hydrocarbon production, ONHYM indirectly contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. In this regard, gas sales to its customers in the Masqala and Gharb regions make it possible to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by half that would have occurred if equivalent fuel oil had been used.

ONHYM has also converted all of its meskala generators to gas-powered units and continues to do so for the West. A carbon audit covering all facilities is being prepared.

Specific measures are currently being evaluated (reducing gas flaring, reducing the impact of lighting, removing materials from many processes, etc.). At the environmental level, ONHYM ensures the use of best environmental practices and, where appropriate, the restoration of sites in the event of damage.

Impact studies are systematically conducted before projects start with a well-defined process in place to validate and accept the results. In the mining sector, ONHYM subsidiaries and holding companies continued their social and community work this year in partnership with local communities around their production sites.
