Impact on local communities As an oil company, we are well aware that we have a great responsibility to our neighbours and the environment. Under this section, you can read more about our efforts to enhance safety, while minimising environmental impact. For anyone living close to a refinery, there are safety and environmental concerns. Which is why it's not enough for us to be a good neighbour; we have to be a great neighbour. Having said that, we have a positive impact on local communities, too. For example, in Nynäshamn, Sweden, our refinery is the town's largest employer, providing not only career opportunities but also tax revenues.
