Community Advisory Panel

Year established: 2002

The Humber Refinery is situated very close to the village of South Killingholme, a community of around 2,000 residents. The refinery’s Community Advisory Panel, the Killingholme Area Advisory Group (KAAG), was established in 2002 with a focus on being a good neighbour and sharing information with the local community. The goal of the KAAG is to promote a better understanding of business at the refinery, our health, environment, safety and quality philosophy; to show that we are mindful of the proximity of the refinery to local residents and that we are committed to being a good neighbour. We are proactive in addressing concerns raised by the group and encourage an open dialogue on matters of importance.
