La Abadía

At La Abadía Ibéricos, our suppliers of boxes, sliced meat packs and belly bands have the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and the Custody Chain certificate from the FSC, whose motto is ‘Forests for all forever’.

 

PEFC is the most widely implemented forest certification system in the world which aims to ensure that the world’s forests are managed responsibly and sustainably, and that their many functions are protected for present and future generations.

 

PEFC-certified forest-sourced paper helps to combat illegal logging and supports the primary functions of forest resources such as:

 

  • • Contributing to the conservation of many ecosystems and biodiversity.
  • • Providing a living for many rural populations and the source of an extremely important processing industry.
  • • Increasing recognition of the social and cultural role of forests.

More sustainable transport

We continually update our transport resources to enable us to respond quickly to any changes in regulations and technological developments that emerge. This minimises our environmental impact and ensures compliance with the EC guidelines on reducing CO2 emissions in heavy transport.

 

The average age of our heavy goods vehicle fleet is less than 3 years.

 

We always buy makes that prioritise fuel efficiency, such as Scania, a Swedish company that plants a tree for every heavy vehicle purchased.

 

This project contributes to creating a public green space. For each vehicle that we’ve acquired from this brand since 2013, we’ve received a certificate of guarantee for this action, with the GPS coordinates of the green space that’s being created.

 

With this initiative it is expected that 16,250 tons of CO2 will be fixed in five years of planting during the established period, as estimated byenvironmental specialists

Photovoltaic energy
at our head office

Spain’s exceptional climate where we are located led us to choose photovoltaic solar energy as a renewable energy source.

We contribute to reducing CO2 emissions significantly

We generate 45% of the energy we consume

We reduce our energy consumption by 50%

We generate a 20% surplus (on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) which is added to the network to make the most of it.

Reduction of energy/CO2 emissions:

 

325,762 kWh/year

113.46 t of CO2 saved
