Vicedo Martí is committed to protecting the environment, preventing pollution and using renewable energies. Proper environmental management is the basis of each of the phases that our clients require to obtain their final product.
For the current year 2022, we highlight the following objectives in Environment and sustainability in which we are working:
- Carbon footprint: Vicedo Martí has begun the steps to implement the measurement of his carbon footprint. It is defined as a count of all greenhouse gases [GHG], emitted by direct or indirect effect by the organization and expressed in units of carbon dioxide equivalent.
- Implementation of circular economy with packaging, working with our clients for the return of packaging and containers, as well as promoting the use of removable labels.
- Digitalization of the company: by reducing printing on paper, promoting reuse and encouraging the use of digital resources through internal communication campaigns, to raise awareness about the more responsible use of resources.
VICEDO MARTI S.L., as a dynamic, robust company with a vocation to lead, and as part of a technologically cutting-edge and demanding sector, has determined that good environmental management is the basis of each one of the phases that our customers require to obtain their final product.
At 2019, our Environmental Management System was certified to standard UNE-EN ISO 14001:2015. Since then, year after year, we have been renewing the certification and becoming more and more involved in making environmental improvements in our facilities and in raising awareness at the staff level. With the aim of improving the communication of our environmental improvement activities, with regard to clients and society in general, we have prepared this report, which will be disseminated and updated annually:
Since 2019, VICEDO MARTI SL has been making a great economic effort, continuing with the modernization of the current plant, with the most advanced technology, implementing LEDs in 100% of the installation, incorporating injection machinery with servomotors and hybrids, AEROCOOLERS (DRY COOLER) on the deck of the ship, taking advantage of the outside climate of this area, to lower the temperature of the service water for molds and oil, greatly reducing energy costs and pollutants. Continuing with our modernization plan, at the end of 2021 the cooling system of the injectors with “chiller” refrigerators – already existing on the deck of the ship – has been replaced by a new and complete adiabatic air cooler system, achieving a reduction in consumption. of up to 75%, in addition to significant savings in maintenance, which will be verified next year.
During 2020, a solar roof was installed, with which we have improved the self-sufficiency of VICEDO MARTI SL. Throughout 2021, 19.71 MW h have been injected into the network, and there has been a self-consumption of 200 MW h. This is reflected in the decrease in the carbon footprint of VICEDO MARTI, SL, due to lower consumption of the electricity grid.
At the level of the Environmental Management system, VICEDO MARTI SL has learned from the environment and from leading companies with extensive experience in the sector, acquiring a high level of maturity and involvement, ensuring that the environmental aspects of the company are sufficiently controlled, monitoring , analyzing them and taking actions on them.
Within our policy, we are strongly committed to renewable energies.
