The Integrated Management System consists of the combination of processes and practices adopted by the organization to systematize its corporate values and policies aiming to achieve more efficiently its objectives in Quality, Health, Safety and Environment, thus ensuring the prevention and control of environmental impacts, and the risks to the health and safety of workers and other stakeholders. The Integrated Management System Manual represents the basis for the systematization of this management, being supported and complemented by rules, procedures and instructions. INTEGRA is Cetrel's Integrated Management System, designed to provide all Guidelines and Requirements applicable to Cetrel's business and support areas. It is formed by six dimensions distributed as follows:
The structure is also composed of the Compliance System and the Process Improvement Program (FLUXUS), which must be applied to all dimensions and respective processes, as can be seen in the figure below (Figure 1). INTEGRA has as its superior document the Integrated Policy of Cetrel (Figure 5), it should also be oriented to include in its processes the Strategic Pillars of the Organization (Figure 3). Figure 1 – INTEGRA Structure The structure and organization of INTEGRA as well as the QHSE Dimension are described in documents D-INT-001 – INTEGRA Strategic Guideline and D-INT-002 – QHSE Management, respectively. The activities are developed based on the following rules and regulations:
This Manual outlines the Policy, Commitment and Guidelines regarding the requirements that make up Cetrel's GIS in alignment with Cetrel's INTEGRA Integrated Management System, designed to provide all Guidelines and requirements applicable to Cetrel's business and support areas.
Created on October 14, 1977 and having started operations in June 1978, Cetrel is responsible for water production and distribution, effluent treatment and disposal, industrial waste treatment, disposal and allocation and environmental management of the whole area under the influence of the Camaçari Industrial Polo Complex, operating without interruption ever since. In addition, the Company invests in differentiated projects whose main focus is the development and improvement of innovative technologies, capable of acting both in the production processes and in the reuse of products that would be transformed into environmental liabilities. Since its conception, Cetrel has adopted integrated effluent and industrial waste treatment systems, which are practices carried out in the most modern industrial complexes in the world. The integration of systems contributes to environmental sustainability, within the conception of eco-efficiency practiced by Cetrel – rational use of natural resources, with maximum efficiency and minimal impact on the environment. In addition, system integration provides a greater economy of scale and greater environmental safety, compared to the older concept of dispersed industrial hubs that still adopt individual environmental protection systems. Currently, Cetrel S.A. has its shares distributed among private companies, that hold 81.43% of the shares, and the State Government of Bahia, holding the remaining 18.57%. Among the private sector shareholders, Braskem S.A. stands out, holding 63.66% of the shares.
