CNC and N2000 are committed to being responsible corporate citizens. Both hold the highest standards across governance, environmental and social protection and ethical practices and work to a code of conduct and ethics policy that sets out clear guidelines for business practices and procedures.


The diversity of the workers on the CNC and N2000 plants is a tremendous asset and the businesses are firmly committed to providing equal opportunity and a workplace free of discrimination, segregation and harassment. The company is also dedicated to building the national pool of contributing members of society, through training and work experience programmes for technicians and new graduates.

The protection of these employees within the workplace and the safety of the local community are of paramount importance to the businesses. Both plants have exemplary safety records and there is a consistent effort to ensure the best standards are maintained. Clear processes and systems are underpinned by a strong workplace culture which meets global benchmarks in Health, Safety, Environment and Quality performance. Both plants use the ANSI/API Recommended Practice 754 as well as in-house programmes, including Emergency Response Plans and Safety Management Process (SMP) to assure the safety of workers and of contractors.

Environmental Impact

The use of hazardous materials and production of emissions and effluents are a necessary part of state of the art ammonia production processes, however, both CNC and N2000 are committed to safeguarding the environment by not only satisfying legal requirements but acting responsibly where the law does not exist.

From the initial design, which meets the World Bank guidelines, through to compliance with local and international codes and standards, the plants have been subject to Hazard and Operability Reviews (HAZOPs), Pre-Start Up Safety Assessments (PSSAs) and since start-up, employ stringent Management of Change (MOC) procedures. Material Safety Data Sheets are available for all products we produce and feedstock and chemicals we use. All waste is treated to ensure it safely meets discharge standards, or is disposed of through approved vendors.

Mitigation measures are in place to limit the environmental impact of both CNC and N2000. This is done via monitoring of strict Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and statutory limits for gaseous emissions and liquid effluents and continuing investigations into efficiency improvements around the use of natural resources.

Community Support

As well as providing secure employment and economic stability in the area, CNC and N2000 take great care to support and invest back into the local community in Trinidad.

We have invested over TT$3 million into local initiatives and projects which span education, culture, arts and support for charitable organizations.

These include:

  • Support for the low income housing project Habitat for Humanity which resulted in 10 homes being built
  • The historical docu-drama, Oceans Discovery Project – Tobago 1677
  • Investment of TT$120k for 5 years in the Homework Centre Chase Village, to help provide safe and secure spaces to students from varying socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Contributions to a wide range of NGOs and charitable, cultural/arts, sporting organizations
