Cosentino and its Environmental Management System
Respecting the environment is a key factor in the development of our industrial processes by striving for the lowest possible impact on natural resources. At Cosentino, we have set up an Environmental Management System that adapts to the changing needs of the environment from an ecological perspective. This is integrated into all business areas, also taking into account dialogue with different interest groups.
This philosophy has driven all our industrial processes to care for the environment, by implementing measures such as reusing water in the production phase, reducing waste and lengthening product life cycles (repairs and recycling).
In our industrial park, we produce 1.2 million square metres of products with recycled materials. We also use 100% renewable energy and are committed to quality and sustainability, offering warranties of up to 25 years for all our products.
In 2020, we will move towards energy self-consumption with the implementation of a new photovoltaic power plant of between 10 MW and 40 MW – the first in Spain – that will contribute up to a third of the energy we consume. The opening of the plant will coincide with measures to reduce the quantity of raw materials that are used in industrial processes by 15%.
