[en] At Viefe we’ve given up using fossil fuels so we can be more sustainable and make further inroads as regards our policy of making ourselves a company fully aware of our responsibility to the climate and respectful to the environment.
We work in privileged natural surroundings, at the foot of a protected National Park (las Sierras de Milany-Santa Magdalena y Puigsacalm-Bellmunt) in touching distance of the southern Pyrenees. We are surrounded by incredible scenery which we admire and wish to protect. This is why ecological sensitivity is one of our priorities for the future direction of our company.
The inauguration of our new facilities has enabled us to already meet some of the challenges we had set as regards sustainability during the coming years. Thanks to the installation of 159 solar panels and together with the energy suppliers we work with, we can proudly say that Viefe‘s new facilities are operating with 100% renewable energy. What’s more, having the ISO 14001 certificate guarantees us as a company with an index of CO2 emissions below the average.
All these measures are the first steps which we will then take more of. We imagine a future in which the materials we use, the production process, the packaging, the optimization of transport and the energy that we consume can all be reduced as much as possible.
Fighting against this change, which has been visibly demonstrated to be true, is not only a desire of our company but also a necessity for the whole sector of our industry. We collaborate with customers and suppliers on innovative projects which allow us to follow up and meet those objectives of reducing, recycling and reusing. Only through this collaboration will our impact on the environment be significantly decreased.
We are proud to have met this objective, but we are fully aware that to achieve being a company that is totally sustainable, we must act across the whole cross section of production and commercial areas at Viefe without pausing for thought. And that is exactly what we are going to do.
