Raul Romeva, deputy secretary general for prospective analysis and Agenda 2030 for Catalan political organisation Esquerra Republicana, visited Boix’s facility to get some first-hand knowledge of the company’s work. During a guided tour from the company’s management, Romeva saw the circular approach to the production process adopted by Boix, the forest bioeconomy leader in Catalonia.

The family group currently manages two production facilities—comprising two sawmills and a packaging plant—and employs 120 local people who, through their work, process 180,000 tonnes of timber, packaging, biomass and road safety components every year.

For 50 years, Boix has diversified and extended its business activity to add value to the forest’s natural capital, while working to preserve woodlands. In that regard, the company has introduced new technology and digitalised its processes to improve efficiency and safety in one of the country’s oldest industries.
