Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

EMAC® Group supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve people’s lives and prospects worldwide. They involve taking action on climate change, education, women’s equality, environmental protection and the design of our cities.

We, as a company, are committed to this and to the belief that the company should not only fulfil the economic function of earning profits, creating wealth and generating employment. It must also sustainably and inclusively pursue this goal by seeking to improve people’s lives, preserve the planet and attain a more prosperous, socially aware society.

EMAC® Group has integrated these SDGs into our strategy and environment. This transition towards sustainability is a challenge for us and meanwhile a great opportunity to make a positive impact and improve economically, socially and environmentally.

Some examples of actions and contributing to the SDGs:

• We target certain SDGs such as End Poverty, Zero Hunger, Quality Education, Health and Well-being, and Gender Equality through our CSR policy. In these areas, we have been collaborating for many years with entities including Fundación Vicente Ferrer, Casa Ronald McDonald, Fundación Pequeño Deseo, Tatami Rugby Club Valencia, Centro Ocupacional Quart de Poblet, APIVAL, AFACO and Fundación Once.

• Examples of contributing to the Decent Work and Economic Growth SDG include implementing teleworking in some positions, flexitime, intensive working hours in summer and every Friday, and more.

• We have made our website accessible and host a Universal Accessibility and Safety (UAS) challenge to raise awareness of accessible and inclusive construction while supporting Fundación ONCE’s work. These actions enable us to contribute to the Reducing Inequalities SDG.

• We replaced plastic bottles for water consumption with a reusable INOX bottle, thereby reducing plastic consumption. We have recycling bins around the company’s different areas and we recycle storage boxes as well as having reduced the office’s paper consumption. This allows us to progress in our Responsible Consumption and Production SDG.

• We contribute to the Sustainable Cities and Communities SDG through Sustainable Construction, with measures such as:

- Collaborating with companies that use harmless products and raw materials in their production process, avoiding environmental risks both in transport and manufacture.

- Developing innovative products that do not harm the environment.

- Maintaining ongoing research into new processes and materials.

- Offering the widest range of 100% natural wood profiles on the market, a totally sustainable raw material.

- Thanks to our research, we developed our MAXI material, exclusive to EMAC®. It incorporates natural fibres from recycling organic agricultural waste, allowing us to obtain highly resistant, stable profiles that look stunningly unique.

 Our sustainability strategy also includes our subsidiaries in Italy and the US. Furthermore, we have a Sustainability Committee made up of staff from all areas of the company, who are responsible for collaboratively developing and implementing the different actions. Anyone in the company can propose sustainability actions and then the committee itself decides by voting on the priority actions to be implemented.
