AENOR has granted certification to FCC for Zero Waste. The construction company has been able to certify a 99.99% recovery of the waste generated in its construction, industrial and civil works in Torija (Guadalajara).
To implement "Zero Waste", FCC Industrial held extensive training on waste management for both its own and sub-contracted personnel; A correct separation of the waste from its different fractions and a use of large containers, achieving the latter's double objective of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by significantly reducing the number of waste transport and making the project profitable, achieved a positive or zero rate for most waste.
The obtaining of this certification is part of the company's voluntary commitment to integrating and complying with the Sustainable Development Goals.
The AENOR Zero Waste certification recognises organisations that hold a Waste Traceability System with recovery from 90% - 100%. That is, companies that can guarantee the recovery of the waste they generate, thus avoiding landfill and, at the same time contributing to boosting sustainable through the circular economy.
The "Zero Waste" certification is in addition to the certificates the company already holds for environment (ISO 14001) and energy efficiency (ISO 50001) that the company owns.
