Catalan term or phrase: vetllant
I am translating a text from Catalan just because i want to help someone. It's my first time dealing with this language, i don't speak Catalan at all, however i find it somewhat similar to my native language, Romanian.
The context is: "TMB seguira vetllant per minimitzar l'impacte mediambiental de la seva activitat".
Thank you.

Explanation:
Normally, 'vetllar' means 'to keep vigil' 'to watch over', 'to stay awake' etc. However, here you might want to translate it as 'TMB will continue to ensure... / or 'TMB will continue to see to it that...'
