GOAL: ENSURE SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION PATTERNS
We’re passionate about caring for the planet
At Pikolin, we are committed to caring for the planet and we strive every day to reduce our impact on the environment. We aspire to be a sustainable company, which is why we analyse the potential impact of our activity and search for the best solutions to help minimise it.
As a result of this commitment, we’ve created Pikolin Sustainable, the umbrella project for our strategy for the future, which is threefold:
We strive for efficient use of resources
To oversee our environmental and energy tasks, we have an Environment and Energy Committee. Backed by the general management, this committee coordinates and follows up on our use of energy and other natural resources, such as water, natural gas, cardboard and wood, among others, as well as emissions and wastewater from the facilities.
Becoming more energy efficient
At our new PLAZA facilities we have:
- cut power use per m2 by 14%,
- cut gas use in production per m3 by 40%,
- increased production capacity by 30%,
- improved our comfort standards (temperature, lighting, etc.).
We work hard to reduce our impact on the environment
Using recycled raw materials
We encourage the adoption of good environmental practices
People are another pillar of Pikolin Sustainable, as without them it would be impossible to achieve sustained and sustainable growth to continue providing thousands of people with healthy rest.
That why we work to raise awareness and get our suppliers involved, through the Pikolin Responsible Purchasing Policy. That way, all the Pikolin suppliers of raw materials are certified and sign the Code of Conduct for Pikolin suppliers, which sets minimum requirements for ethics and responsibility that must be met for the relationship to continue.
Our employees are a key element of Pikolin Sustainable, as they help us put in practice actions aimed at reducing the waste we generate. These little steps help change habits and have an impact on protecting the environment, and include using recycled paper, separating and recycling waste, avoiding single-use plastics and other actions with this goal in mind.
