Efficient waste management is a fundamental part of our commitment to the environment and to driving a circular economy.

In 2017, we launched the Calvo Zero Waste project, implementation of which was initiated in the factory and offices located in Spain. The project is being expanded to include the rest of the countries where we operate. Our goal is to ensure that no waste ends up in a landfill by 2025.

The factories in Brazil and El Salvador already have their own recovery plants, where organic waste from manufacturing canned sardines and tuna is converted into by-products such as fish meal and oil for use in the animal feed and cosmetic industries.

Work is also being done to reduce the amount of waste. In company offices in Spain, single-use plastic bottles have been replaced by reusable bottles, thereby eliminating the generation of more than 13,000 plastic bottles each year.
