Sustainability has been a requirement in the automotive industry for many years and is present in most areas of our society. It is part of our company’s core business and a requirement in the European automotive industry.
Sustainability is a megatrend. Sustainable management of business and industry is essential and will remain fundamental in the future. This also applies to ILPEA, which has introduced sustainable management plans in all its areas of activity.
From waste prevention to raw material recycling management to products for alternative propulsion systems, ILPEA works daily to improve and optimize its environmental strategy….. The main goal is to reduce the environmental footprint of all ILPEA facilities and to fulfil international sustainability standards.
2022 has marked a new milestone towards a more sustainable company. We have implemented ISO 14001 standards in some of our plants and those that have not, started a plan to be certified by 2023. The aim is to take initiatives to help defend the environment like making the electricity supply of our plants 100% renewable and to reduce our carbon footprint.
Several actions have been taken, such as the implementation of solar panels in production plants and closer control over waste management suppliers. This allows us to significantly reduce emissions in the manufacture of our products and actively contribute to the fight against climate change.
Our environmental principles include the adaptation of all our activities to international regulations, the awareness of all our staff in sustainability and the conversion of our electricity supply to 100% clean energy.
In all of our locations, indicators on sustainability and waste are collected and evaluated to take measures with the aim of preserving the safety, health, efficiency and environmental environment of each of the activities that ILPEA Galvarplast carries out. These KPI’s also guarantee the correct monitoring of the environmental aspects of each ILPEA site, and that the procedures and standards established by the company and international regulations are being correctly applied.
