Commitment to the conservation of the biodiversity and local development
We have a fisco-chemical and biological treatment plant for the treatment of wastewater generated in the farm.
With the biomass boiler we have considerably reduced the consumption of propane gas and CO2 emissions.
We create a mobility plan that consists of sharing the private vehicle to move to the factory, concentrating the number of loads and downloads and courier service once a day, and promoting the approach of visitors on foot through the different itineraries of the Natural Park. The overall reduction in number of trips has been 36%.
We support the local economy bought from local suppliers, hiring local staff and disseminating activities and businesses in the surrounding area.
We have a Corporate Social Responsibility protocol in which the task of labor insertion of people with disabilities stands out, ensuring optimal socio-labor conditions. More than half of the workers are at risk of social exclusion due to chronic mental illness or intellectual disability.
We collaborate by offering our products in local projects, humanitarian aid and poverty eradication.
