Environment

Costa Verde is a certified company in the standard EN ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System through which the company is committed to an active contribution to the preservation of the environment, by continuously improving its environmental performance, reducing its environmental impacts, and fulfilling the legally imposed requirements. This is a commitment that has been incorporated into Costa Verde’s strategic goals in order to further its reputation as a socially and ethically responsible company.

The company has sponsored several actions locally in order to reduce the environmental impact of its activities.
An Infra-structure for the treatment of industrial waste waters has been established for the efficient treatment of industrial liquid effluents, for example there is a system in place that enables the collection and reuse of the water used to clean the factory floor.

Costa Verde promotes the internal and external recovery of all its waste, and approximately 95% of the waste is recovered.

A Green Wave project has been implemented at Costa Verde. This is a highly innovative use of microwaves to improve the firing process. Through this technology the firing time and energy use can be reduced by 20% which is a dramatic improvement over the traditional firing process.
