Sustainability and responsibility, our company’s cornerstones
At Ence, sustainability is our company’s cornerstone. The criteria of economic, social and environmental sustainability, which guarantee the focus on results, the mutual benefit in our relations with suppliers, forest owners, farmers, customers and other stakeholders, as well as the management of impacts to the environment are strongly integrated in our biomass forestry, production and energy generation activities, as well as our management model.
Commitment to the environment
Ence, is the leading European producer of eucalyptus pulp, the first Spanish company producing renewable energy with agricultural and forestry biomass, and leader in Spain in the comprehensive and responsible management of forest areas and crops.
As a company firmly committed to sustainability and the environment, Ence develops its activities through an integrated production model that follows the most demanding and internationally recognized sustainability and corporate responsibility criteria.
Ence’s integrated production model includes tree cultivation, renewable energy production and natural pulp production, all under a management system that is sustainable and respectful of the environment.
The comprehensive management of forest stands to produce pulp and renewable energy covers the entire value chain, and it is a distinct advantage. Ence’s activity includes selecting, planting and growing, harvesting, purchasing, shipping and receiving trees in operations centres for their comprehensive utilization.
This presence across the value chain allows the application of best practices in forestry plantations and their utilization, leading to greater efficiency in energy production and pulp. In addition, it allows Ence to have greater knowledge of the raw materials used, by intervening directly or indirectly in its management through the application of the sustainability criteria on which it bases its activity.
