Reducing our carbon footprint

Quality in Global Oil is a strategic value

Global Oil Chemicals obtained its ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management Systems) certification in November 2017.

For us, quality is a strategic value. Management excellence, through continuous improvement, is one of the fundamental lines framing the various actions and commitments Global Oil undertakes with its customers, shareholders, employees, suppliers and partners, as well as with society and any other stakeholders

  • Our commitment is to manufacture competitive products that meet the needs and expectations of our customers, while fully complying with current legislation.
  • Our organization is geared to process management, always mindful of continuous improvement and the LEAN philosophy.
  • In January 2018 we obtained the FSSC 22000 food safety certificate for all plastic polymers produced at our Tarragona complex. This certification is the first ever granted to a polyolefin production centre anywhere in the world, which is proof of our commitment and leadership in food safety. We also obtained this certification in December 2018 and March 2019 for our Puertollano and Sines facilities.

But for us, quality is much more than obtaining certificates and complying with legal requirements. It is a philosophy of day-to-day work that involves all the elements of the organization, guiding them towards the achievement of the same objective: the customer’s full satisfaction.
