RPK Group's Environmental Commitment

At RPK Group, our dedication to the environment and sustainability is strong and goes beyond mere regulatory compliance. For example, in the SAQ 5.0 Rating Report on environmental matters, we achieved a score of 92%, which is significantly higher than the industry average of 67% and the national average of 64%.

Here are our main initiatives and achievements in this area:

Emissions Monitoring System

The RPK Group plant in Vitoria-Gasteiz has implemented a continuous emissions monitoring system for particulate matter at the most critical emission points. This action aligns with our environmental commitment to the community and our stakeholders, according to the ISO 14001:2015 standard, under which we are certified corporately.

Environmental Product Declaration

We have a Certified Environmental Product Declaration for reference products, as defined in the annex, based on the ISO 14025 standard for environmental labeling and declaration. We also verify the minimum carbon footprint requirements for products according to the ISO 14067 standard on greenhouse gases.

Carbon Footprint

Our goal is not only to obtain certifications but also to implement concrete actions to achieve zero carbon footprint. We are calculating our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas levels using a government tool, allowing us to track it accurately. Our current strategy is to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2025.

CO2 Reduction Strategy Roadmap:

  • 2022: 50% renewable energy
  • 2023: 60% renewable energy (Installation of solar panels on building P5)
  • 2025: 100% renewable energy certified by the energy provider
  • By 2030: Compensation of residual CO2 footprint

Responsible and Efficient Resource and Waste Management

At RPK Group, we select our suppliers based on quality and efficiency criteria. We conduct environmental surveys with our suppliers (raw materials, transporters, maintenance providers, etc.), and the results are integrated into our annual planning.

Management Measures:

  • Prevention: Training through awareness days and compliance with the packaging and packaging waste prevention plan.
  • Recycling: Depends on the nature of the waste and its treatment by the manager.
  • Reuse: Promoting agreements with customers for the use of returnable packaging.
  • Recovery: Not contemplated due to the one-way nature of the production process.
  • Revaluation: Using some of the waste we generate as raw material for third parties to avoid landfill management and impact the environment.
  • Waste Disposal: Monitoring and controlling the quantities of waste produced.

These data are considered in the annual planning of objectives as part of the environmental aspect of waste production.

Efficient Water Use

Access to drinking water may be at risk due to climate change. Although our facilities are not in water-scarce areas and this is not a material issue in our sustainability strategy, we have decided to monitor water consumption and take measures to reduce it.
