Green Living

SOBRE GREEN LIVING

Green Living by Azteca represents our commitment to society, to the environment that surrounds us, to people and to the environment. We value the past, manage the present and fight for a sustainable future, not only from an environmental point of view, but also from an economic and social point of view.

Because we believe in what we do, we are willing that the daily work of the company and our way of working favor a better environment for everyone, fully assuming our social and environmental responsibility, so fundamental today.

And how we do it?

Through a Quality and Environmental Management department created in 1998, responsible for coordinating all environmental actions related to Azteca Cerámica’s activities.

Implementing and developing an environmental management system based on the UNE EN ISO 14001 standard, certified by AENOR-IQNET since 2003.

Expressing and defining our commitment to the Environment, through the development of an Environmental Policy, which includes the demanding management guidelines that comprise it.

Accrediting us with the Integrated Environmental Authorization, a certificate that encompasses all the legal requirements that apply to Azteca’s activities today.

Green Living by Azteca is part of us, of our way of doing and living the world, our world. Let’s start by applying the change we would like to see in ourselves.

RESPONSABILIDAD MEDIOAMBIENTAL

Because the environment that surrounds us belongs to everyone, we must respect it and take care of it as much as possible

Our effort to maintain a good environmental balance makes us very aware of the impact that the company’s activity can cause it. Therefore, by certifying ourselves according to the ISO14001 standard, we obtain the opportunity to analyze the impact we generate on the environment, also providing us with the appropriate tools to manage, minimize or cancel it as far as possible.

Our responsibility leads us, in the same way, to actively involve ourselves in all the working groups in this regard created at the sectoral level. This allows us, among other things, to expand knowledge in environmental matters that can contribute to efficiently manage Azteca Cerámica’s activity and, above all, when making decisions that may directly affect the environment in which we find ourselves.

Being consistent with our philosophy and our commitment to these issues, has led us to take out an Environmental Liability Insurance to react to uncontrolled situations that may arise and have a negative effect on the environment. Although current legislation still does not require us to do so, we intend to take out this insurance, which is an act of responsibility as it allows us to restore its natural balance as quickly and efficiently as possible in the event of any unwanted impact on the environment.

NIVELES DE RUIDO

Minimizing the impact of our actions at all levels, both visible and acoustic, translates into a cleaner environment for everyone

In order to reduce the noise we emit abroad, we have adopted all the necessary measures and made the necessary investments to guarantee that the sounds we produce are the minimum possible, complying at all times with the limits set by the legislation.

In addition, we undertake, in the event that a new source of noise pollution arises, to study each case in depth and apply the necessary soundproofing measures to reduce or even eliminate it as far as possible.

GESTIÓN DE EMISIONES

Adjusting our activity to the permitted limits benefits us all

In order to reduce emissions into the atmosphere and reduce their danger, we have installed the necessary measurements and filters to retain polluting gases and thus comply with the limits set by legislation and the Kyoto Protocol to alleviate the greenhouse effect and , with this, global warming.

CONSUMO DE AGUA

Let us all take care of what belongs to all, looking for sustainable ways of producing, for the benefit of the environment.

Water is essential for the survival of all known forms of life on our planet, for this reason, it is essential to promote its responsible and efficient use.

In order to regulate water consumption, we carry out a monthly control, both globally and in each of the company’s areas. This allows us to detect possible leaks or inefficiencies and correct them, in addition to points susceptible to reduction or use of consumption, such as wastewater that is reused 100% in what we call “zero discharge”.

ENVASES Y EMBALAJES

Being aware that what we buy will generate waste makes us socially responsible people

We have been actively involved in the management and improvement of packaging, creating an exclusive internal work group. From this group arise actions focused on reducing, not only the quantities of containers that we put on the market, but also their environmental quality, since we reduce the polluting substances in their composition to the maximum.

In addition to raising awareness and the work that we develop internally to promote the eco-efficiency of the materials we use for packaging, we are involved in the same way in their external management, participating in two Integrated Management Systems to promote, with your help and commitment, the recycling of these materials: Interseroh in Germany and Ecoembes in Spain, of which we adhere to the Ecoembes Business Prevention Plan for Containers.

RECURSOS Y ENERGÍA

To minimize resource and energy consumption …

We seek the balance between production and the impact generated on the environment.

One of our main objectives in environmental matters is to reduce the consumption of resources and energy as much as possible, always using the raw materials and fuels that have the least impact on our environment.

 

These are the measures we are currently developing:

1. Use of natural gas as fuel during the manufacturing process, as it is the option that projects the least harmful gases to the outside, and which, together with the filters installed in the chimneys, allows its emission to be considerably minimized.

2. We also take advantage of the large amount of heat that is generated in the kilns during the ceramic firing stage for other processes, such as the drying of the pieces. In this way we manage to reduce the consumption of new resources and energy in later phases.

3. Our permanent update in terms of new technologies allows us to be more efficient in the decorative process of ceramic pieces, since we reduce the use of machinery and resources thanks to digital inkjet printing.

4. The proximity of quarries to our facilities favors the use of their raw materials, thus cooperating in reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, associated with their management and transportation.

5. Finally, another important measure applied is the recovery and subsequent reincorporation to the production process of the production losses that are generated, such as raw rejection, cooking or wastewater, with which we manage to considerably reduce the consumption of new materials. cousins.

DESTINO DE LOS RESIDUOS

Being aware of the adverse effects that waste generates on public health and the environment makes us make every effort to manage them efficiently.

At Azteca, we are pleased to communicate that we have and are complying with conviction with an action plan that allows us to reduce the waste generated, reduce its danger, and favor their recycling and reuse.

Some of the actions that we have implemented are:

The selective segregation of waste from the moment it is generated, through buckets and containers that are perfectly identified and located in their corresponding place. This work facilitates its management in the most efficient way possible.

At the same time, we managed to reduce the consumption of raw materials by recovering and reincorporating raw, cooked and wastewater rejection into the industrial process.

On the other hand, we try to manage all waste correctly, so that those that cannot be reused internally are delivered to authorized managers, prioritizing their recovery and recycling over their disposal in a landfill.
