The importance given to EHS is reflected in the advances in environmental management systems and the attainment of sustainable management certificates. We are working to attain the ISO 14001 certification in all the production plants in the "2016-2020 MORE TO BE" period.

 Currently, more than 60% of the plants have this certificate (excluding the acquisitions made in the strategic period, 86% of the Group's plants have this certificate).

In 2019 the Kentland plant (Vector USA) has certified its environmental management systems to this standard and the objective for 2020 will be to continue with the certification process at the Danville and Montgomery plants in the United States and the Alfhausen plant in Germany, meeting the objective of 100% of the plants in the Viscofan perimeter at the beginning of the strategic plan.
