Commitment to Environmental Sustainability
Eptisa applies principles of sustainability to projects for the development of society
Over-exploitation of the planet compromises its sustainability and the resources available for future generations. Engineering is an essential component of environmental conservation, the recovery of natural areas, water and waste management and the search for alternative energy sources to ensure a sustainable future. We understand that progress entails protection of the environment, and therefore Eptisa integrates policies associated with sustainable development into its strategic planning.
Eptisas Management carries out an Integrated Quality and Environmental Management System in accordance to UNE-EN ISO 9001 and 14001 standards. Eptisa works to mitigate the environmental impact caused by its activities through a programme of environmental sustainability best practices aimed at reducing the consumption of resources and proper waste management. The environmental management system implemented by Eptisa defines the Company's commitment to reducing its environmental impact.
