Environmental awareness and communication
In MEREFSA, we believe that the environmental sustainability is only possible achieving the motivation and commitment of all those involved, that is why we often do information and awareness environmental campaigns so that everyone involved such as customers and entities are fully informed and know everything related to the environment in their working areas in order to have their participation and support in all the management actions and continuous improvement.
Significant environmental aspects
Recently, we have carried out an analysis of all the operations with a perspective of the life cycle, which has allowed us to clearly identify the environmental aspects associated to each stage of the design, the Silicone manufacture, PTFE and the commercialization of its derivates.
We have different mechanisms to identify and periodically evaluate the environmental aspects, determining which are significant.
We establish operational controls to all those significant aspects we have direct control and over those we have any kind of influence.
Annually, we establish targets and environmental programs that allows us to improve our environmental performances and the protection of the environment, defining the measures we are going to carry out, the allocated resources and the best responsible to carry them out.
We do periodically a tracing of all the targets to ensure the achievement of all the expected results or establish new measures that allow us to achieve them.
In order to know the evolution of the environmental behavior of our organization in a regular and systematic way, we measure and evaluate:
- Legal compliance and another requirement
- Significant environmental aspects
- Risks and opportunities analysis
- The results of the environmental performance
- Environmental targets
We have established environmental indicators that provide us with data on consumption of resources of our facilities, activities or services, waste management and emissions associated with transport, etc. These indicators provide reliable and timely information for each aspect in order to make more accurate decisions and thus be able to fulfill our purpose of continuing to improve our environmental performance.
External communication of environmental information
MEREFSA has available to interested parties that request it, information on the environmental aspects indicated and on their environmental performance.
