Increasing the sustainability of every manufacturing process and achieving a zero carbon footprint continues to be our strategic aim. This is why at Pontevedresa Industrial we go beyond the legally required parameters by creating our own master sustainability plan, which has enabled us to reach landmarks hitherto unheard-of in the glass industry. In 2015, the Pontevedresa Group installed a photovoltaic plant on the roof of its main manufacturing centre, establishing itself as the first company in the sector to introduce this sustainable system.
We have our own master sustainability plan
Limitless water reuse
More than 11 million litres of water are treated and reused throughout our production processes. Failure to do so would mean wasting water resources needed to supply a city of over 116,000 inhabitants.
Our technological vanguard has successfully reduced energy consumption by 20%
Our manufacturing processes include technologies that are increasingly energy efficient. In fact, our latest curved glass tempering furnace is the largest of its kind to minimize heat loss.
