Worldwide, over 89 billion plastic bags are used every year, most of them just once. The problem with plastic is that if it is not properly recycled, it degrades very slowly and gradually breaks down into microplastics, or in other words into very small plastic particles. These small particles can then enter the oceans with sewage, rainwater and floods.

Our goal is to make the world a little bit more sustainable and to inspire our customers, clients and business partners to treat our planet in a more climate-friendly way. Every contribution counts – let’s shape the future for the next generations together.

For several years now, we have been asking ourselves – as a company and as employees – how we can act in a more climate-friendly way. Our goal is not only to reduce CO₂ emissions along the entire supply chain, but also to minimize as far as possible the emissions generated in our office.
Therefore, we are changing certain behaviours and processes within our company, motivating and inspiring our employees to act in a more environmentally friendly way in their everyday lives and trying to make our day-to-day work more sustainable. In this context, we have also asked ourselves how we would have to change our vehicle fleet to achieve a reduction of emissions.
Agrícola Valenciana has been our competent partner for citrus fruits, berries and delicious stone fruits for several generations. In addition to high-quality fruit, the Spanish producer also cares about the environment. For this reason, Agrícola Valenciana has been reforesting more than 10 hectares of its own plantation since 2016.
