Minerva manages its activities with the highest regard for the wellbeing of people, places and the environment.
We believe that the success of a business is determined by more than its bottom line.
Conducting our business with integrity, maintaining high ethical standards, and acting with respect for the environment and for all those with whom we work are not just desirable. They are essential.
As part of Mercuria Energy Group, we operate to a code of conduct with employees expected to work in accordance with our high moral, ethical and legal standards. Our global compliance team ensures that all employees complete the compliance training program.
Minerva’s management team is responsible for fostering and maintaining this strong culture throughout the company and works collectively and continually as a governing body to ensure the company conducts its business via six guiding principles;
- We comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations
- We ensure all of our records are accurate and reflective of the group’s financial position
- We conduct all of our business with integrity
- We treat all of our employees with respect
- We are committed to conducting our business in a responsible and ethical manner
- We protect our reputation at all times
Conducting our business with integrity, high ethical standards, and fostering an environment of mutual respect for all employees is imperative to our continued success.
Minerva operates with the utmost regard for the wellbeing of people, places and the environment. Our activities are managed to the highest environmental, health and safety standards. Prior to acquiring or investing in assets, we conduct HSE due diligence, as well as regular due diligence on our owned assets.
Our bunkering fleet is double-hulled, modern and oil-major approved with an average age of less than 10 years. Our tankers are optimized for bunkering and operated to the highest standards of maintenance and safety by our in-house fleet management division.
Minerva is enthusiastic about environmental sustainability and is an active supporter of the world’s transition towards a greener economy. We began including environmental products in our portfolio as the various markets began to develop, and we now trade in carbon emissions, certified biodiesel and other environmental products. Minerva has also invested in sustainable biofuel refining that encourages the use of carbon-neutral fuels.
Minerva is more than a business; we are part of society. As a group, we contribute to developing opportunities that improve life in the communities where we are active.
