Environmental Performance

At Unen we like a job well done, so we apply this to all aspects of our activity. But a job well done also means working with respect for people and the environment, sustainably and responsibly in terms of consumption and waste. That is why, in all our fields of activity, we apply criteria that allow us and our customers, to achieve constant improvement in the following aspects:

  • Employee health and comfort.
  • Reducing energy consumption.
  • Using sustainable, recyclable or recycled materials.
  • Using sustainable, recyclable or recycled materials.
  • Proposals for environmental improvements in our Projects
  • Assessment by company Management of the management of environmental aspects identified at Unen.
  • In addition to focusing our efforts on those projects or installations over which we have full control, i.e. our direct environmental aspects, our procedure for identifying and assessing environmental issues within the scope of our environmental management system follows an approach based on a life cycle perspective, since we not only take into account the environmental aspects and impacts that are under our control, but also those environmental aspects on which we can exert an influence, since they are part of the life cycle of the products or services we provide. Such environmental aspects are known as indirect environmental aspects.

    The applicable standard defines life cycle as the consecutive and interrelated stages in a system of products (or services), from the procurement of the raw materials, or their generation from human resources, to their final disposal”. Thus, in general terms, our life cycle would encompass the following stages:

  • Procurement of raw materials.
  • Design.
  • Project execution.
  • Use of our product.
  • End of service life.
  • The most significant environmental aspect during the execution of the project is the generation of construction and demolition waste on the site. All this is managed through an operational control process and, taking into account the size of the project, this is carried out at the project start stage and again half-way through the project, to ensure better control.

    As regards operational control in our offices, last year we achieved a reduction in excess of 5% in electricity, water, toner, paper and battery consumption.

    The table below presents, in summary form, the different operational control indicators.
