SUSTAINABILITY

INNOVATING
FOR PEOPLE
AND PLANET

Arneplant’s commitment to sustainability has existed since the company’s creation. We are aware of the importance of taking care of the planet, so we adopt the necessary measures to minimise our environmental impact, by promoting and coordinating increasingly efficient and effective initiatives, from the perspective of 360-degree sustainability that encompasses our natural, social and work environment.

Care for the environment and energy efficiency go hand in hand with the constant innovation that is in our DNA, and this enables the development of unique products on the market, incorporating innovative technologies, advanced materials and a commensurate production methodology that optimises our environmental performance:

  • We systematically identify and manage waste.
  • We treat the wastewater resulting from our production process in compliance with the local sewage bylaws, which reduces waste generation significantly.
  • We carry out periodic maintenance of our production equipment and monitor the emissions generated.
  • We optimise all our designs with the aim of reducing their environmental impact.
  • We fully adapt to our customers’ needs, avoid waste and rationalise and maximise the use of resources with the objective of zero losses.

At Arneplant we work to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by strengthening our commitment to the implementation of a certified Environmental Management System that meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 quality standard.
