Iberchem, our global fragrance and flavours business based in Spain, has championed waste management best practices through robust policies and employee education programmes.
In recognition of its achievements, the company received a Zero Waste Certification from AENOR, the Spanish organisation responsible for the development and distribution of technical standards. Iberchem attained the certification by diverting more than 97% of its waste from landfills and incinerators to recycling and recovery facilities (7% above certification requirements). The evaluation covered 19 categories of waste, including paper, plastic, water and electronics. This represents a significant step in transitioning away from a linear model towards a circular economy.
