Our commitments

The new plastics economy

At CMSA we aim to develop an effective “after-use” system of plastic packaging based on:

  • Enhanced packaging design and production.
  • Drawing on renewable sources of raw materials (uncoupling the production of plastics from fossil raw materials)
  • More efficient use of raw materials
  • Reusing as much raw material as possible
  • Finding “other uses” for these materials
  • Making the most of waste through energy recovery

All these changes should go hand in hand with a change in people’s mentality that may help bring about a drastic reduction in plastic “leakage” into the environment.

With this aim in mind, we have adopted the EU ‘Circular Economy Package” standards intended to increase the recycling of plastic packaging up to 55% and achieve a landfill reduction target of 10% by 2035.

CMSA’s objective for 2025 is to increase the amount of recycled plastic in its packages up to the 50% target. 

Reducing our carbon footprint

Our vehicle fleet

The 20 vehicles in our fleet are either electric or hybrid. This has proved to cut the company’s CO2 emissions in half (including their CO2 manufacturing cost)

Eco-Activities

Our concern for the environment goes beyond product manufacturing – we take positive action on the environment.

Farming: Thanks to our 10,450 lemon trees, we can absorb about 500 tonnes of CO2, that is, the pollution caused by 300 cars running an average of 10,000 km a year.

Thus we absorb 40% more CO2 than we produce in our everyday manufacturing activity.

Solar farm

Next to our lemon grove is a 45-solar-panel photovoltaic system that provides 891,198 Kwh/year, equivalent to 69% of the total energy we consume.

We have recently revamped our plant with rooftop photovoltaic panels so we will produce 90% of the energy we consume.

Less plastic in our packages

  • The plastic in our packages is 100% RECYCLABLE.
  • We are cutting down on the amount of plastic packaging in favour of other materials like paper.
  • We are reducing the thickness of plastic in our packages
