We create value with sustainability

Climate change is a reality, and the Secil Group is aware of its role in responding to this major global challenge. The reduction in the carbon intensity of production, the circular economy and the protection of biodiversity are just some of the international objectives that we accept and whose solutions we have begun to implement in the countries where we operate.

 

These challenges, combined with the close relationship with communities, our stakeholders and institutional institutions and partners, strengthen our intention and are the basis of our Sustainability Policy and the priority areas that we have outlined for our actions.

ENVIRONMENTAL CHANNEL INITIATIVE

Fostering communication among the various Environment areas

The Environmental Channel aims to promote learning and knowledge sharing between the various environmental departments of the Secil Group companies.

 

Through this channel and the joint work done by the various Environmental Liaison Officers of the group, it is possible to monitor the main environmental actions of the Secil cement factories, identify synergies and strengthen teamwork.

  • Sustainable Development Goals
    Secil Group has identified seven of these goals as priorities and seeks to respond to them with initiatives to be implemented throughout the structure.
  • Commitments 2020-2030
    Following the GCCA guidelines, Secil Group has established a roadmap of ten commitments to be achieved by 2030. With them, we intend to outline objectives and targets that lead to the reduction of the impact of our activity on the environment and the communities where we operate.
