We are committed to ethics, social and environmental responsibility, for this reason in 2016 we decided to implement the economic model of the Common Good, realizing our first Balance of the Common Good (BBC).
In the next three months we will make a second balance on the year 2018. As a first action we have reviewed the achievement of the objectives established in the previous improvement plan and we have written a report on the results achieved to date.
This new balance will use the new version of the matrix 5.0 proposed by the EBC and will establish a new improvement plan adapted to the current conditions.

 

Continuing with our policy of respect for the environment, we are working on the project “Zero Discharge”, by means of which it is intended to reduce and reuse water with the installation of an ultrafiltration plant until reaching zero discharge. For the moment and thanks to an improvement plan, proposed by the different departments involved, we have managed to reduce the consumption of water used in the manufacturing process by 47%.

We have acquired eight rigid trucks to renew the transport fleet with the aim of improving and enhancing our brand image. Our new trucks are more respectful with the environment, since they comply with the Euro 6 regulation, which entails a significant reduction of polluting emissions compared to the previous Euro 5 norm.
