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:
- We promote energy efficiency throughout the value chain, developing packaging that minimises waste generation - such as gas emissions and wastewater generation, among others - during manufacturing and subsequent processing.
- We have food safety and quality certifications.
- Our production policy in proximity through a production presence of up to 22 factories, contributes to reducing the impact of transportation on the environment.
- Viscofan invests in technologies that enable production with less production waste, and it also seeks to reduce the intensity of waste at landfills.
