We are certified as a Carbon Neutral Company
January 27, 2020
On Monday, January 27, we received the Carbon Neutral Certification from the Colombian Institute of Technical Standards (ICONTEC). Thus, becoming the first Salvadoran company and the first one in the field of flexible packaging in Central America to have this seal, that guarantees our compensation for the CO2 emissions we produce.
According to the emissions report, we will have a zero effect for 25,392.12 tons of CO2. The carbon footprint is measured with the ISO 14064 certification on greenhouse gases. All this idea and process arise from our sustainability strategy. "In 2016, we set the challenge of being carbon neutral by 2020," said Rodrigo Samayoa, Manager of Corporate Affairs.
Energy efficiency was the first adapted measure, now we produce more with less energy. Another of the actions taken is to eliminate carbon emissions through recycling. The third way is compensation.
This certification reaffirms our commitment to the country and the world, to be a company that cares and works so that today's generation and those that will come, would have a better planet and environment to live in.
