Developing more sustainable activity requires incorporating environmental criteria throughout the value chain that minimises the impact of our business activity caused by the transformation of raw materials by mechanical and chemical means that leads to the generation of waste.
Starting with the selection of raw materials, both the main ones (cellulose, collagen skins, abaca paper, polyamides and natural gas) and the auxiliary ones, and continuing with reduction of waste generation, optimising waste management and prioritising recovery or recycling above other systems such as destruction or disposal.
Within its commitment to this SDG Viscofan seeks:
- Integrate criteria of circular economy in the organization through policies of prevention, reduction, reuse, recycling and valuation of waste.
- Boosting energy efficiency throughout the value chain, developing packaging that minimizes waste generation - such as gas emissions and wastewater generation, among others - during manufacturing and subsequent processing.
- Promoting the reduction of the impact of transport on the environment and boosting a sustainable local economy.
