Objectives, commitments and achievements 2019-2020

Alto Garda Power

In each Environmental Report, Lecta lays out a series of objectives and commitments that will guide our sustainability priorities over the next two years. These include aspects related to certifications, climate change, reducing environmental impact, social responsibility and information transparency.

Once this period ends, a public review of each takes place, and progress made in achieving our goals and fulfilling our commitments is communicated with the greatest possible transparency.

Objectives Commitments Achievements
Maintain our position as an industry leader in minimizing environmental footprint. Save around 5,800 tons of CO2 by implementing different energy efficiency measures at Zaragoza, Motril, Sant Joan les Fonts and Condat mills. Over the course of 2020, energy efficiency audits are planned for the rest of the mills. Achieved 44% reduction of the estimated total.
The impact of COVID-19, with the consequent restrictions on mobility, affected the implementation of some projects.
44% Achieved
Replace rigid packaging with more sustainable packaging at Leitza and Almazán mills by changing two paper-packaging machines using rigid cardboard boxes with laminated exterior for flexible packaging. This will entail annual savings of 65 tons of plastic shrink wrapping. The goal of substituting rigid packaging at the Almazán mill was met.
At the Leitza mill, it was ultimately rejected.
Achieved
Develop totally recyclable packaging paper with a water vapor barrier, with no plastic film, for internal use to substitute polyethylene film The new recyclable packaging paper was approved in 2020, and it was launched in the Adestor range. The previous packaging will be substituted gradually.
