The company maintains a management system to ensure that its activities comply with applicable legislation, educate and train its employees to act in an environmentally correct manner, as well as undertaking all necessary actions in the search for solutions and continuous improvement in a transparent way for the health and safety of workers and protection of the environment.

If it is the Factory, the construction of our block, called the eco block, is an example of success. We use artificial sand instead of natural sand, thus fighting the illegal natural sand market. The artificial sand is a product that has already been a residue of the crushing process that passes through high precision sieves guaranteeing a greater homogeneity to the raw material, which promotes greater quality and uniformity of the final product. In addition, we reused the rainwater collected on the roofs, reducing the use of water in the process.
Therefore, following the concept of cleaner production, we seek to eliminate our waste and reduce our consumption of natural resources. To ensure this, our process is fully automated, with low waste generation, and the few waste generated is reused in the process.
