We prevent and control the effects of industrial activity on the environment
We act with a vision for sustainability
The environmental management model we apply at Ercros aims to protect the environment and prevent the potential negative effects of industrial activity on the environment.
This model is based on the incorporation of sustainable criteria in business decision-making; the identification of risks; and the elimination of the impacts of our activity on the environment (when this is not possible, we control, monitor and try to reduce them).
In order to reduce water, atmospheric, noise and light pollution, and to use energy and raw materials more rationally, we implement the most advanced technology in our production processes and continuously incorporate improvements in them.
Based on the unavoidable obligation to comply with legislation, our commitment goes further. Our facilities are governed by approved environmental certification standards; we adhere to voluntary good practice programmes; and we invest to improve environmental protection.
We certify our environmental practices
The environmental management system, implemented in all our factories, is based on the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
Every year, an accredited external company verifies compliance with this and the other environmental reference standards we apply: the ISO 14064 standard for quantifying CO2 emissions, and the ISO 5001 standard for energy management.
Partnerships to achieve our goals
We are members of good environmental practice programmes and associations that help us to promote them.
