ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION POLITIC
Today we are living through the most serious environmental crisis in the history of humanity: global warming, loss of biodiversity, air and water pollution.
The project must always look for tangible and objective solutions that prioritize recycling, management and alternative systems of less impact, seek renewable energy sources, in addition to promoting research into alternative production and processing friendly to the environment.
It is important to clarify that the APOYA-Naturalba project works actively in environmental protection at different levels that will be briefly detailed below:
- Producers who join APOYA and/or deliver their crops to Grupo Naturalba must be aware of the Good Agricultural Practices manual and develop conservation activities on their farms such as replanting trees, recycling, rainwater collection, and reduction of chemical inputs, among many others.
- At the level of transformation of the raw material in the mill, Grupo Naturalba also works in the development of projects that allow the reduction of pollution (composting of the brushwood), reduction of the use of exhaustible natural resources (closed water system in the crusher, tank for the use of rainwater) or to mitigate carbon emissions (increase of natural coffee and honey coffee in process, crushing in the morning to reduce the time of washing the crushed coffee, improvements in the electrical system, future investments to increase the area of solar patios, among others).
- The training and awareness of the personnel is of utmost importance in order to make the reduction of light and water consumption more efficient, the establishment of an adequate recycling system, the reuse of certain inputs such as printing paper, among others.
- At the level of sales and marketing in general, APOYA-Naturalba must sensitize its customers to the reduction of plastic bags, the recycling of cartons for orders, recycling systems when the customer allows it.
It is important to be clear that everyone, producers, employees, customers, administrators, must participate in order to reduce the impact of our company on the environment.
In this aspect, all initiatives are welcome and everyone is invited to share new ideas, models or examples that can be applied in our organization.
The organization updates annually, in June, the month of the environment, a 3Rs Plan to implement basic activities that each one must do, but also to spread to all the people that collaborate, in one way or another, with our project.
