Our commitment to the environment is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals and the targets to be developed by 2030.

In recent years, corporate sustainability has become increasingly important within corporate structures. More and more companies are seeking to incorporate environmental, social and governance criteria that comply with fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly approved a plan of action in favour of people, planet, prosperity and universal peace that was framed as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, where companies in the private sector play a very important role in aligning their business objectives with those of equity and sustainability.

Our company is firmly committed to sustainability, both when it comes to satisfying users, by offering innovative plywood solutions based on wood from renewable sources, and when it comes to committing to the planet in order to promote environmentally responsible practices and a focus on the use of this type of material.

This is why, at Garnica, we have officially joined the United Nations Global Compact to strengthen our contribution to this responsible initiative and become one of the key organisations in achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 specific targets to be developed by 2030.

This compact offers an exclusive national and international annual training plan that will help us to achieve our objectives in a sustainable way, taking into account a number of key factors such as correct waste management, the application of energy efficiency measures and good environmental management to optimise resources.

At Garnica, sustainability is one of our core corporate values. “The use of raw materials and our commitment to sustainability are key for meeting our needs without compromising the needs of future generations” - Pedro Garnica, President of Garnica.
