We assume the responsibility of striving to minimise our impact on the environment. Find out how we do it.
Unfortunately, our activity does at times involve environmental risks and for this reason we implement sustainable development criteria in all our decisions and business processes. We also promote a responsible attitude among our employees, whose involvement is a decisive factor in our commitment.
Care for the environment is built into our corporate social responsibility policy in several areas:
We are aware that our social commitment should go beyond our facilities and products, and that is why we collaborate in several projects relating to areas such as the environment, solidarity and sport.
We go beyond European regulations and Spanish law in adapting our products for more environmentally-responsible manufacturing. Moreover, we are pioneers in launching products that are low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).
Our facilities are designed with criteria of resource and materials optimisation, reduced energy consumption, minimising waste and emissions and recycling.
Our work with the National Association for the Home of the Future (ANAVIF) has enabled us to determine sustainability indicators for our paints and to develop a range of truly sustainable products that we market under the GEA® brand.
Throughout 2011 and on the occasion of our 50th anniversary, we collaborated with WWF® España towards the conservation of our forests.
