WE CHOSE TO BE SUSTAINABLE.


We align with the following sustainable development goals

Circular Economy

Through our circular economy program, we look to generate greater use of waste. Thus, in 2022 we recovered 95% of it, and we work under the premise of reducing and reusing our materials.

Climate change- Reduction of GHG (Our Carbon Footprint)

Throughout 2022, we focused all our efforts on carbon footprint measurement. We obtained our baseline of the emission operation to Scope 1 and 2 facilities, processes, and operations for the production plant which were verified by ICONTEC.

For the quantification of GHG emissions, we took as reference what has been established in GHG Protocol and the NTC-ISO14064-1:2020 guideline. The measures taken were calculated by using an operational control approach, and the application of the documented emission factors.
