Environment and Quality
Thinking about tomorrow
As innovation is the lever of the company’s growth, Vicaima has managed to achieve its goals by surprising the market with differentiated, yet environment friendly solutions.
Vicaima holds certification for the ISO 14001 and is certified by FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®), which ensures responsible forest management.
Vicaima has also implemented an internal environmental project which aims to reduce CO2 emissions with the proceeding of the following actions: optimization of the residue collection system for subsequent increase in value or recycling, purchase of an ecological UV line and improvement of the lighting efficiency. Since 1999, waters are treated in a Residual Waters Treatment Station (ETAR). All of Vicaima’s human resources are involved in training actions and awareness campaigns which promote “green attitudes” as concerns the separation of materials for recycling and electric energy consumption.
Vicaima's Enviromental Accreditation:
Vicaima has its quality management system certified by the ISO 9001 standard since 1993. The commitment to quality is to ensure its’ clients continuous satisfaction, always respecting legal environmental requirements and sustainable forest management.
