Sustainability is a growing concern and Merquinsa has made it a keystone of its Environment, Health and Safety policies. These are essential drivers for Merquinsa which imply overall commitment and responsibility in every sector and at all levels of the company.
Merquinsa's commitment to protect the safety of its employees and the neighbouring community, as well as the environmental protection in all its industrial activities, links together with a total transparency policy with local authorities, environmental associations and neighbourhoods. Teamwork has always been the best way for obtaining a safer and cleaner environment.
This is why the company applies this policy, as an integral concept of organization, based on the fulfilment of the following principles:
Merquinsa has been working on a more effective strategy and culture for sustainable development among employees, customers, and suppliers for some time; demonstrating its commitment to the protection of its employees and environment with an ISO 14001 certification since 1999 and its adhesion to the "Responsible Care®" program from 2001-2012.
Not only is Merquinsa committed to minimizing the impact on the environment, but also to the responsible use of natural resources and innovating in technologies deriving from renewable sources. Merquinsa made significant progress back in 2007 in the development of the first TPU resins made from renewable sources according to ASTM-D6866 (instead of the traditional petroleum-based TPU products) .
Merquinsa will continue to offer products with greater environmental sustainability while investing in the most effective TPU technologies and operating procedures to monitor the environmental impact of its business.
