The world is changing, technological advances are taking place faster and faster, but we must be aware that this change must involve a greater commitment to the development of a sustainable infrastructure, a clean technology that performs an efficient management of resources and bets on a firm commitment to the development of the circular economy.
At IDESA we are committed to this development, implementing increasingly sustainable processes, and actively collaborating with our clients in the efficient development of their products in the choice of the materials needed for their manufacture, thus favoring our long-term sustainability.
At IDESA, we are extremely vigilant to ensure that our activity and our projects have the least possible impact on the environment and the ecosystem in which they are located. Since 2014, we have implemented measures to reduce consumption in our facilities, achieving a substantial reduction in the carbon footprint generated by our activities. Among other actions, we have changed all manufacturing facilities to LED lighting, we have also replaced part of the machinery in our workshops in Avilés, which has allowed significant energy savings.
Our commitment to sustainability becomes a reality in the renewable projects in which we participate: offshore wind farms, manufacture of equipment for the production of less polluting fuels, biodiesel plants, natural gas extraction and storage plants or projects for the reduction of sulfur in fuels.
We are currently expanding our business development by participating in the value chain of new energy vectors such as the processing and storage of blue or green hydrogen or liquefied natural gas for the maritime transport sector.
The basic principles on which we base our strategy and environmental management are:
At IDESA, we promote our business model in a way that contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The United Nations Global Compact is a framework based on 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
On September 25, 2015, world leaders from 193 countries committed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): a set of global goals to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all, as part of a new sustainable development agenda.
IDESA contributes to these goals, impacting many of them, both through our own actions and through our participation in other initiatives promoted by our stakeholders.
