Environmental Policy

Quality, respect for the environment and risk prevention

Video: Pioners in environmental management

Bioibérica's Environmental Policy forms part of the Company's General Policy and is explained in our Management Manual. It is established on the basis of Quality, respect for the Environment and Risk Prevention. These are the roads to obtain the satisfaction of our personnel, customers, suppliers, shareholders and socio-ecological environment.

The Company is a pioneer in this aspect and decided to adapt its Environmental Management System to the ISO 14001 and EMAS as an effective tool to help it deliver on the abovementioned objectives. The system which has been implemented has been checked in accordance with these regulations since 1997 and 1999 respectively.

The inclusion of the environmental factor in the company's daily work has had economic, managerial and personnel satisfaction benefits. Proof of this, please find attached to this document the figures showing the evolution of the principal Environmental Aspects derived from our activity.

The environmental declaration is available to the public.
