We have imposed ourselves as an obligation to reduce emissions; gain energy self-sufficiency by increasing the weight of renewables; use biomass as fuel, the recovery of by-products, consolidating a circular economy process; wastewater treatment and reuse; have local suppliers or produce containers and auxiliary materials that are recyclable or directly made with recycled materials. In every step we take, we want not to harm our planet and that future generations have a better place to live.
