Our commitment to the environment is a priority.

 

Aware of the negative impact that a refrigerator can have, we have endeavored to achieve cleaner production through the Comprehensive Waste and Confiscation Management Plan and the Environmental Management Plan. These programs are approved and supervised by the Atlantic Regional Autonomous Corporation, a state entity in charge of environmental protection. These procedures ensure that we have determined which are the inputs, processes, products, by-products and wastes (solid, liquid and gaseous) that can negatively affect the environment. In the same way, we determine what actions to take to eliminate, mitigate, counteract or offset these effects.
