Protea Mining Chemicals as a chemical handling, storing and distribution company recognises that activities could have an impact on people, communities and the environment. We are therefore committed to conducting ethical business practices which maintain and enhance the balance between economic, social and environmental aspects.

SHEQ goal

The assessment of the various risks associated with the route, potential for chemical spills and environmental impact and development of mitigation strategies are critical when evaluating such supply chains. The consequences otherwise can be disastrous for the communities en route to a mine as well as to the future of the mine itself.

We have a dedicated and experience team that conducts these exercises and which has been operating in Africa under these difficult conditions for many years. The team delivers valuable and realistic assessments of what can be expected along different routes including the preventative measures that need to be instituted and managed to ensure sustainable supply.
