For 2020, we have set ourselves the target of increasing our coverage of solar panels from 702 m² to 2,000 m². We are committed to clean, renewable energy.
BIOMASS & METHANIZATION
We have replaced our old fuel oil boilers with biomass boilers. We have also managed to generate 10% of the energy we consume by using pig fur as fuel, which has substantially reduced the amount of waste of this by-product. In 2020, we plan to install a methanization plant to process waste produced by our industry.
Consists on reusing all the water in our industrial processes to irrigate the 112 hectares of woods and crops surrounding our facilities. Water is treated in order to keep our environmental impact to a minimum. Our land is also grazed by herds of sheep and cows, which help clear our undergrowth and thus reduce the risk of fire.
There remains much to do in terms of environmental sustainability, but we firmly believe that doing all we can to move towards a more environmentally sustainable world is not merely a desirable option but a social obligation.
