Avícola de Galicia. S.A.U. (Avigal)

The policy and actions carried out at AVIGAL are aimed at adopting a series of measures that minimise environmental risks. To that end, the environmental issues associated with our activity have been identified and assessed, and those which are significant have been determined in order to take action.

These actions are centred on implementation in productive processes, and focus on possible technological improvements.

AVIGAL's equipment is technologically advanced and energy-efficient, and reduces consumption, increases productivity and generates as little waste as possible.

In keeping with this, water consumption in 2021 was reduced by 7% compared to the previous year, and its continued reduction is planned by making further improvements to the process. Energy efficiency was also optimised compared to the previous year.

In the context of improvements, in 2022, minimizing waste generation was set as an objective, a goal that was achieved by reducing sludges from the treatment of process waters.

The objectives set for 2023, are focused on the progress of our management system, monitoring the control of environmental aspects. Furthermore, it is also expected to implement IT platforms to speed up the tracking of compliance with the legal requirements applicable.

"Our goal is to involve our suppliers, clients and consumers, and society in general, in our commitment to protecting the Environment and preventing pollution, seeking the best solutions for efficient management"
