Greenhouse gas emissions
To make our activity more sustainable, we strive for maximum efficiency in the use of resources and we promote clean technologies to reduce our environmental impact. We are moving forward with an international momentum towards the full transition to a low-carbon economy, promoting energy efficiency, emissions reduction and sustainable mobility.
For the third year in a row, we have calculated our Organisational Carbon Footprint in accordance with the new version of the UNE-EN ISO 14064- 1:2019 Standard.
An important new feature is that the naming of the types of emissions has been changed, eliminating the former Scope 1, 2 and 3 and going into more detail on the types of indirect emissions.
The main outcomes below, as well as the calculation methodology, have been verified externally.
Indirect emissions account for 87% of our Organisational Carbon Footprint. In other words, those emissions which are not directly related to our production processes, but to the different areas and processes of our value chain, such as indirect emissions derived from energy generation, production and transport of the raw materials consumed, distribution of end products, transport and final management of waste outside our facilities, business trips, etc.
Specifically, 63% of our carbon footprint comes from indirect emissions related to the production of the raw materials consumed. That is why we are actively working with our most critical suppliers in terms of carbon footprint to collaborate on measuring and reducing their carbon footprint.
