Commitment to sustainability

Our commitment

Sustainability is integrated in Zuvamesa’s strategy: in the various social, environmental and economic aspects, with a commitment to all of our various stakeholders.

At ZVM, we are firmly committed to conducting all our activities in accordance with sustainable development guidelines.

We have an in-house code of conduct, which aims to ensure our corporate management is ethical, to create and maintain relationships of trust and to work jointly with all our stakeholders to achieve a fairer society, with solid principles and values.

The environment

We are fully committed to the environment.

At Zuvamesa, we monetise all of the by-products from juice production and ours is a zero-waste production facility.

In 2016, we invested in the installation of an anaerobic digestion plant at our waste water purification plant, achieving gas self-generation, thereby reducing natural gas consumption at our production facility by 24% and also cutting the consumption of chemicals and improving the quality of the discharges.

In 2022, we obtained Zero Waste recognition from AENOR, reinforcing our commitment to environmental sustainability by recovering more than 90% of our waste, thus avoiding landfill.

Circular economy

Zuvamesa has been considered as an example in the Best Community Practices in sustainable matters by the European Commission, both for the valorization of fruit waste such as pellets and the recovery of D-Limonene; as well as the practices aimed at saving water consumption.
