Lecta's Almazán Mill Obtains ISO 50001 Certification

Press release from the issuing company

Six of Lecta's mills now have ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification.

A more efficient use of available energy sources contributes to reducing the greenhouse gases caused by energy consumption, thereby minimizing the impact of business activity.

With this announcement, the Lecta Group advances its commitment to obtain energy efficiency certification at all its manufacturing sites in 2012.

The Lecta Group comprises three companies with a long tradition in their home markets: Cartiere del Garda in Italy, Condat in France and Torraspapel in Spain. Lecta currently has nine mills with a production capacity of close to 2 million tons and is recognized worldwide as a customer-oriented, flexible and reliable supplier and partner.

The environment has always been a priority for Lecta, leading it to adopt best practices to ensure sustainable industrial development. Witness to this are ISO 14001 and EMAS Environmental Certifications, FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody Certifications and now, the ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certification that the mills have secured.

The start up of a new self-adhesive machine at the Almazán mill (Soria, Spain), the result of significant investment in 2011-2012, entails not only doubling its production capacity, but improving service and enhancing competitiveness, not to mention contributing in a sustainable way to economic and social development in the region by creating employment.
