Guala Closures Group, as a large international organisation, seeks to meet the expectations of its stakeholders by reporting on its commitments and on the environmental performance of its business activities and by undertaking to manage them in a responsible way.
The scarcity of natural resources, pollution, and climatic change are extremely important issues for Guala Closures , which influence a large part of the company’s strategic decisions.
Back in 2008, Guala Closures issued an Environmental Policy Document , which reiterates its commitment to ensure that environmental sustainability will play a key role in operational planning and in the management of all of the Group’s business activities worldwide.
Guala Closures intends to gradually extend the application of the ISO 14001 standard to all of its operations. At the end of 2014, 3 production plants (12%) had obtained this certification for their environmental management systems with a view to continuous improvement. The approach recommended by the ISO 14001 standard facilitates the continuous control of environmental performance.
Monitoring the Group’s environmental policies focuses on 6 highly important environmental indicators: energy consumption, raw materials employed, water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, waste production and transport, for which short, medium and long term objectives for improvement have been established
