We are glad to announce that by the end of 2022, we successfully renewed our ISO 14001 Certification. Finding ways to improve our waste management has been one of our targets during the last year. For this reason, we have built up more recycling units by using more containers to efficiently separate cardboard paper. Furthermore, in order to generate more freedom of movement and facilitate the unloading tasks for our logistic staff recently two preexisting recycling areas have been extended and restructured with their corresponding civil works.
Further actions put in place to protect our environment have been the renovation of 25 percent of our entire forklift feet, with all of them shifting from the combustion motor to the electric one. Moreover, from now on 50 percent of our overall energy consumption comes from a green renewable source, which was achieved with the extension of our photovoltaic solar energy plant already installed in the year 2020.
For the year 2023, our most important goal in terms of contributing to sustainability consists of adding more segregation points and elaborating a new action plan to protect our natural environment.
We are proud of Symaga because our factory produces silos in a more sustainable way. Our objective is to be leading the future steps to sustainability.
