Waste management

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.
