All the production lines and luminous signs of our factories in Spain, Mexico, Turkey, Brazil and France, as well as our corporate headquarters, will turn off this Saturday March 30rd during one hour as a sign of awareness and support for the fight against climate change.
At HMY, we have a strong commitment to respecting the environment and sustainability, as demonstrated by the numerous plans and initiatives we carry out in all areas of the company’s operations. Because of this commitment, we want to join the initiative promoted by WWF and which is held annually since 2007 worldwide. Therefore, between 20:30 and 21:30, the facilities that HMY has distributed around the world will stop and turn off their lighting as a sign of commitment to this movement of awareness for the care of the environment.
We will participate in this way in the largest environmental defense initiative known to date. A movement that is now 12 years old and has achieved the participation of more than 35,000 companies, 2,000 million people and more than 7,000 cities and towns in 178 countries. This campaign, organized by WWF, has become a call to action to take concrete measures that allow a sustainable and respectful development with the environment, trying to show that a future based on clean energies is possible.
In this way, we use raw materials that come from less polluting sources and sustainable management, which allow their reintroduction into the productive chain through recycling. We also dedicate special care to the design of materials and packaging to achieve, with less energy consumption and more efficient and long life products.
In addition, we have implemented sustainable measures in each of our facilities and production processes in order to reduce the carbon impact on the planet through the waste, energy, water consumption reduction and CO2 emissions produced both in the productive processes and in the transport management itself. As a result, the 15 factories we have in different parts of the world have received numerous environmental certifications (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, SMETA, etc.). Following in this direction, we have set the goal of increasing each year by 5% the consumption of clean and renewable energy and reducing our carbon footprint by 15% in the next 3 years.
