SUSTAINABILITY POLICIES

Semapa invests its resources in the creation of a sustainable future, seeking to create value and make a positive impact on the quality of life of present and future generations.

We have defined the economic sustainability of our organization as our basis and priority, purposing to create value for all the interested parties, both present and future. We have unequivocally assumed the need for environmental sustainability, being clear about our aspirations for the environment in which we live and the possibilities for a continual improvement in the use of natural resources. We have defined the sustainability of human capital, with the optimisation of individual and organisational well-being, and we assume the sustainability of the social capital, with our integration into the societies where we operate, as an integral part of our raison d’être.

We intend to internalise the best sustainability practices in our daily activities and in our decision-making process. Our long-term vision for the organisation is established on four pillars:  guarantee a suitable return for the shareholders (Business), improving environmental performance (Environment), ensure the well-being of our employees (People) and generate value in the societies where we operate (Community).

Semapa incorporates the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in its strategy, investments and action.

The subsidiary companies have their own general and specific policies for the different components of sustainability. These policies are grounded on principles and based on procedures for the management of the impacts of their activities and propose solutions for the resolution of non-conformities and the general improvement of processes.

In order to harmonise an effective transposition of the guiding principles and the commitments of the Group into the action of each subsidiary company and to integrate all these efforts in a joint line of action, Semapa is currently developing a Charter of Commitment with criteria for sustainable action, to be applied across all Group companies.

NAVIGATOR

Navigator’s activities are based on a sustainable business model focused on the creation of value throughout the entire value chain and which is grouped into three large areas:  Forests and Industry, People, and Partnerships.

This model is inspired by the identity of the Company and is expressed in its Vision, Mission and Values.

Its targets and strategies are also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

SECIL

Secil frames the sustainable development of its activities within an Integrated Policy on Quality, Environment, and Occupational Health and Safety, which meets or exceeds the legal and regulatory requirements and others subscribed to, and furthermore commits to a continual review of its performance in these areas, to meet the expectations of all the parties with interests in its action.

The monitoring of the achievement of set goals and their periodic review are regularly communicated, with a view to transparency and the involvement and motivation of all the intervening parties, as well as the constant updating required by ongoing changes in the norms that are to be observed.

Secil believes that its Vision, Mission and Values, which are known and shared by all its employees, constitute the benchmark for its positioning and action towards its customers, shareholders, the surrounding communities and other interested parties.

The aspect of this vision related to the environment is embodied in a set of formal commitments that will be referred to within the scope of the specific sustainability topics.

ETSA

In all its activity, ETSA assumes its responsibility for its business, the people and the environment.

In all its activity, ETSA assumes its responsibility for its business, the people and the community. It is not only a matter of duty; it expresses everything we believe about companies needing to scrupulously comply with all applicable environmental and health and safety laws and regulations. The focus in this area is a clear result of the values mentioned in its mission, most of which are deeply rooted in concerns for sustainability, such as: Innovation, Excellence, Quality, Sustainability and Safety.

The ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) is determinant for the conformity of its policies, as will be seen later in the specific sustainability topics.
