All these means are little to preserve what is most valuable; the nature that surrounds us.

Our concern for the preservation of nature and the environment is ongoing, and we were one of the first companies in the sector in Spain to be awarded the environmental management certification ISO 14001.

This has led us to make large investments and to incorporate the most avant-garde technology in waste water treatment, purification of our machines and renewable energy.

Our products are manufactured using industrial processes that leave a lower carbon footprint on the planet, as they come from monitored forestry plantations that absorb CO2, and where the raw material is both renewable and recyclable.
