Environmental declaration

Respect for the environment

Respect for the environment is one of the essential factors when defining Saggas activities. As evidence of our commitment to the environment, the environmental management of the plant is certified under the UNE-EN ISO 14001 standard and is registered in the Valencian Community Register of Centres with Environmental Management Systems, in accordance with the EMAS Community Regulation. Every year, we submit our environmental and energy management to an audit process, we prepare our Environmental Declaration and we submit this for verification by accredited entities, in accordance with EMAS standards.
In 2018, Saggas celebrated 10 consecutive years elaborating its Environmental Declaration and obtaining verification by AENOR, which consolidates its commitment to the environment.
