Sustainable and Innovative Products

Reduction, Reuse, Recovery and Recycling

The Vicaima Group has adopted the principles of the circular economy as key catalysts for innovation in the development of solutions that create value and boost our commitment to sustainability. Based on the strategic concept of reducing, reusing, recovering and recycling materials and energy, we have set out on a path focused on achieving maximum efficiency in the use of resources and materials and in the management and recovery of waste.

Aware of the scarcity of resources and their impact on the environment and society, the Vicaima Group is focussed on a strategy of continuous improvement that enhances:


It should be noted that the main raw material used in the products we manufacture is of renewable or recycled origin, since it essentially refers to wood and its derivatives, which makes them products with great potential to be reused and reintroduced in a circular economy logic.

What renewable materials can be integrated into a door?

One of our contributions to reducing our environmental footprint involves increasingly incorporating renewable materials into the products we manufacture, with a high percentage of recycled materials or wood-based made from fast-growing natural fibres, ensuring performance and high quality standards.

Some examples of these materials:

The skins used on the doors are made using renewable materials, essentially derived from wood

Renewable material is used inside the honeycomb doors and is made from 100% recycled cardboard

Inside the solid doors, primary components of flax fibers are used (flax is a fast-growing plant and the plant stem constitutes a residue) or wood particles, including recycled

For fire-resistant and acoustic doors, we use chipboard panels with a pre-consumer recycled content of over 50%

The door’s structure uses components made from renewable materials (wood and wood-based) or produced through material recovery in the context of the internal circular economy

On the door frames more than 85% of the components used are made with renewable materials, based on wood and its derivatives

Waste Recovery

An essential contribution to the Circular Economy


Our production processes are developed and evaluated, from supply to delivery of the final product, always prioritising the reduction of waste generated and, whenever possible, its valorisation in the course of our industrial and logistical operations, with the aim of promoting its circularity.

The categorisation and monitoring of the various waste flows generated in the Group's operations makes it possible to optimise their separation and forwarding for recovery through the various waste partners or operators with the aim of their being reused and reintroduced into the value chain, avoiding their destination being landfill.

In 2022, recovered waste accounted for 94% of the total waste generated, with wood waste representing a significant proportion and most of which is recovered, either through the production of thermal energy or through its sale, being reintegrated into new products, such as the production of wood-based agglomerates, briquettes, among others, being processed by external entities.

One of our main objectives is to consistently ensure that the percentage of waste recovered is above 90% in the 2021-2025 cycle.
