Looking further ahead, and allowing us to dream, yet in a realistic way, we have ambitious goals for 2050:

Become carbon neutral by 2050

Be energy self-sufficient, with 100% of energy coming from renewable sources

100% of our products will be recyclable, and 100% of the end products will be recycled

Reduce water and energy consumption by 25%

Adopt regenerative practices in all our transactions, activities, and collaborationswith our stakeholders, mainly with suppliers, clients, and employees

We also forsee opportunities that put us in the right direction towards our transformation to a regenerative company:

-

Improved energy efficiency

-

Logistics optimisation

-

Penetration into new clients/applications with regenerative traits

-

Attractive and sustainable range of products for different market applications

-

Updated water treatment system

All these aspects will help us develop and implement our Sustainability Strategy, launched in 2021.

In 2020, we mapped climate-change related risks, as well as other threats that might affect our business activities. However, thanks to our planning and risk anticipation, we managed to overcome the threats below, even in such a complex and difficult context:

-

Small or non-existent variety of suppliers for some critical raw materials

-

Impairment of company results due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, which was not finally a risk. Despite the pandemic, we managed to grow in sales and personnel

-

Risk of employee contagion due to the pandemic, and consequent loss of productive capacity. Both risks were considered and avoided due to proper development and prevention

-

Instability in energy prices, mainly due to climate change

-

Ecological barriers to plastic

-

Non-compliance with environmental rules by suppliers/service providers

-

Occurrence of damage due to bad weather

-

Change in environmental legislation with potential for non-compliance
