It is no coincidence that a company whose value principles include quality is also committed to the environment. They go hand in hand. That is why we have established environmental protection as a value that all of us within the organisation participate in. And that is why we have a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, made tangible with our registration in the Carbon Footprint Registry of the Spanish Ministry of Ecological Transition
We also comply with the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. We are committed to the continuous improvement of our integrated management system. And we have introduced a culture of quality and respect for the environment as a strategic element of our policy for action.
Almetac's commitment extends to all its partners, in order to maintain our required standards of quality throughout the production cycle. All our suppliers and partners respect a demanding code of conduct to this end.
Our commitment to the environment started many years ago. We introduced our first borax and zinc oxide-free glues more than 30 years ago.
The reuse of resources is crucial to progressing toward a sustainable society. For this reason, all the pallets used at Almetac are recycled.
In 2000, we began using returnable containers, eliminating plastic waste, and reducing the cost of wood in pallets and CO2 emissions.
We have reduced the specific weight of the plastic of the cubes, with the consequent environmental improvements of our activity.
The ISO 14001 certification guarantees optimal environmental management. Almetac was the first company in the sector to obtain this back in 2000.
Almetac is a leader in the production of casein and starch glues that are sustainable, naturally-sourced, and that have a positive differential impact on the consumption of water in sewage treatment plants.
Since our inception, we have developed adhesives with natural products and faster biodegradability indices in accordance with regulation EC 1272/2008.
In 2019, we established the Almetac Carbon Footprint to analyze and optimize our processes, products and services.
In order to reduce water consumption and the environmental impact of our activity, we recover process water and reincorporate it into the production process.
We have optimised the unit weight of our packaging, making them have the most limited impact on energy consumption on the market and minimising their carbon footprint.
