Committed to the environment
Our environmental commitment is one of the fundamental pillars of the PROQUIMIA strategy. We believe that innovation must go hand in hand with sustainability and respect for the planet.
Blue&Green Project by Proquimia
The Blue&Green project is the commitment that PROQUIMIA and its customers and distributors have made to environmental conservation, bringing all the actions that the company has carried out during the last twenty years in relation to sustainability under the same umbrella.
The actions included in the Blue&Green project can be divided into four main lines of action: product, packaging, circular economy and corporate actions.
PROQUIMIA applies eco-design methodologies that are based on life cycle analysis, allowing the potential environmental impacts of the product to be identified. From the procurement of raw materials, through to the end of their useful life, including cradle-to-cradle waste management, we define the most appropriate strategies for the disposal, reduction and control of our products.
PROQUIMIA has the EU Ecolabel: a Europe-wide symbol that officially identifies and certifies products and services that are more ecological and respectful of the environment. In this way, we can ensure the sustainability of our products for our customers.
The Ecolabel guarantees:
Reduced environmental impact
Reduced use of hazardous chemicals
Minimisation of packaging waste
Same efficacy as conventional products
Reduction of health risk
Labelling with instructions for correct ecological use
Packaging: closing the circle
As a consequence of our sustainability-based strategy, we have focused a good deal of our innovation efforts on improving product packaging, with the main objective being to minimise the amount of plastic waste generated and support the circular economy.
Member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil
PROQUIMIA is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a worldwide association that promotes the use of palm oil from sustainable plantations.
The application of criteria established by the RSPO helps to minimize the negative impact of palm cultivation on the environment and on communities in palm oil producing regions.
Member of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment
In order to align ourselves with European and global policies, in February 2019, PROQUIMIA joined the "New Plastics Economy Global Commitment" (NPEGC).
This project, led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, unites more than 1,000 organizations under a common vision: a circular economy for plastics. The initiative aims to rethink and redesign the future of plastics, starting with packaging.
