Ormazabal joins forces with the Basque Government and 13 other Basque companies to form the largest public-private alliance in ecodesign and circular economy in Spain
The agreement for the Basque Ecodesign Center, which took place on June 9, marks a milestone in the roadmap of the European Green Pact and the Basque Green Deal, challenges aligned with Ormazabal’s sustainable DNA
Ormazabal achieves a new milestone after signing up together with the Basque Government and 13 other leading companies in the Basque Country, as well as the public companies Ihobe and SPRI, to form a public-private collaboration alliance in the field of eco-design and circular economy; supporting the change towards an efficient economy in the use of resources and the reduction of raw materials. The Basque Ecodesign Center, which is the name chosen for this agreement, identifies itself with Ormazabal’s sustainable DNA and “wants to contribute to the transformation of the Basque industrial fabric so that the Basque Country can face the environmental challenges of the coming years with solvency”, as the Basque Government’s Minister for Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment, Arantxa Tapia, has stated.
The agreement is composed of ArcelorMittal Sestao, Batz Group, CAF, CIE Automotive, EDP España, Eroski, Grupo Campezo, Iberdrola, Kutxabank, Ormazabal Velatia, Orona S.Coop., Siemens-Gamesa Renewable Energy, Vicinay Sestao, Viuda de Sainz, the public company Ihobe, SPRI and the Basque Government itself. The companies of the Basque Ecodesign Center represent an annual turnover of 59 000 million euros, they employ 148 000 people and they have 103 000 supplier entities.
The agreement will also enable the creation of a think tank in which Ormazabal will participate in order to carry out an annual strategic reflection on the challenges presented in the circular economy in the Basque business sector. These reflections will be translated into commitments on behalf of companies and recommendations for the improvement of environmental policy in the Basque Country.
The circular economy, a commitment that is reflected in Ormazabal’s activity
In addition to this agreement, over the last academic year Ormazabal has carried out a series of key initiatives to strengthen its commitment to the circular economy. It is worth mentioning the implementation of different recycling and equipment reuse procedures that promote the elimination and reduction of wast, offering the necessary tools to generate the least possible impact on the environment.
In this respect, different divisions of Ormazabal have carried out the following actions:
Furthermore, for waste management, most of the Ormazabal companies have contracts with management companies specialised in the transport and handling of waste. These contracts cover the entire process, from collection to handling and, in some cases, the return for the reuse and responsibility of both parties.
