THE ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

Athena Worksurfaces is constantly striving to reduce its carbon footprint. This is implemented both by offsetting emissions but where possible to reduce usage. The reinvestment strategy has a major impact on this, the new machines are much more efficient and take less time and energy to run. 

Sustainability and the Circular Economy:
Cosentino’s Environmental Commitment

SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

These valuable projects will continue over the coming years, and mark some of Cosentino’s most significant investments.
The company is in the advanced stages of planning for what will be one of Spain’s largest renewable energy power plants for self-consumption.

The project is currently going through the applicable administrative processes and is expected to be implemented in 2020.
Cosentino will continue to empower the Circular Economy in its processes and is filing proceedings for producing a license which would permit the utilisation of water from a county treatment plant.

Construction of this new station for the Regeneration of Residual Water, located within Cosentino Park, is expected to commence this year.

Caesarstone’s environmental policy outlines a full program of environment preservation activities with regular management surveys, internal checks and corrective actions.

Our environmental management policy sets clear and measurable objectives to maintain safety standards. We continuously do our utmost to minimize the environmental impact of our production processes through energy and waste minimization, recycling technologies and the consideration of environmental factors in the selection of materials and suppliers.
