Aware of its environmental responsibility and the potential effects of its activities on the environment, La Casa Encendida undertakes to continuously improve and prevent pollution by implementing and maintaining an environmental management system within the parameters set out in this environmental policy.
The adoption of this policy guarantees compliance with all EU, national, regional and local laws and any other requirements that may apply as a result of its own corporate strategies or its decision to sign and adhere to specific conventions, protocols or other standards.
This commitment includes a determination to go above and beyond legal compliance by using the best available methods and supplying all necessary resources whenever possible.
Consequently, La Casa Encendida has expressed its commitment to prevent pollution not only by implementing an internal system to minimise the impact of its facilities and activities, but also by incorporating environmental criteria in its actions.
La Casa Encendida exerts a proactive and positive influence on the conduct of its stakeholders and principal suppliers and contractors, promoting environmental responsibility in their actions.
This proactive approach is reinforced by its contribution to the development of conservation and improvement projects and to environmental training and awareness-raising activities aimed at society. Of particular importance in this respect is its cooperation with environmental initiatives managed by both public and private entities and by companies in the industry or related to environmental improvement. This cooperation takes the form of publications, university forums, seminars, conferences, etc.
To put these general guidelines into practice and fulfil its commitment to continuous improvement, La Casa Encendida attaches particular importance to environmental training and awareness among the professionals in its employ and provides the most suitable and efficient resources to this end.
This environmental policy is published and disseminated at every level within the company and is made permanently available to the general public and particularly to stakeholders.
Date of approval: January 8, 2015.
