Ebro promotes internal talent in sustainability
This year the Ebro Foundation launched the Sustainability and Environmental Awards initiative, a competition among the Group companies to promote internal talent in the field of sustainability by identifying projects that contribute to achieving the objectives of our General Sustainability Plan HEADING TOWARDS 2030. The response was a success and very interesting and innovative initiatives were received from the participating subsidiaries.
The winning projects of this first edition, which will be repeated every year, were the companies S&B Herba Foods (SBHF) and Risella. SBHF was awarded for an initiative to reduce water consumption by using rainwater as “gray water” in the toilets of its facilities.
Risella, meanwhile, presented #TheForestBulding a 3D urban forest of trees illustrated on a building for which a special type of paint that absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere will be used. Garofalo, which designed a project focused on the circularity and proximity of the cardboard they use as packaging, received a special mention that will allow them to launch a pilot of the program during this year 2021.
The other participating companies were Herba Ingredients, Transimpex, Lassie and Riviana. All of them presented proposals aimed at the efficient use of natural resources in their production processes, crop sustainability, food waste and consumer awareness.
