Protecting the forest of today to guarantee a forest for tomorrow
With the decline in forestry, agricultural and livestock farming activity, the percentage of forest land in Catalonia is growing every year. The trend towards natural afforestation leads to the progressive ageing of forests, reduced CO2 capturing and rising tree density levels, with the associated environmental risks.
A strong and close connection needs to be re-established based on respect, care and appreciation of our forests, as part of the urgent need to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Forests not only provide us with oxygen, act as a haven for biodiversity and play an essential role in preserving ecosystems; they also perform an essential duty in storing CO2 and are a natural barrier against adverse climate effects.
Under a business strategy linked to sustainability and the circularity of the production process, Grup Boix works with the integral use of trunk wood.
The company works under the PEFC forestry certification that guarantees the sustainability of forestry activities. At the same time, it also justifies that the products that reach the market have been obtained from responsibly managed forests.
The company is committed to the circular economy model, which promotes more efficient production and consumption systems and the non-generation of waste throughout the production process. Grup Boix also has a system of energy self-sufficiency through solar panels and the use of biomass, which is generated in the same activity.
Grup Boix has the ISO 14001 certificate that guarantees the environmental management system in all industrial and production processes. It also certifies the responsibility of constant improvement in environmental impact and sustainability.
With the commitment to consume renewable energy, Grup Boix has a photovoltaic plant with 2,115 panels. The organisation also has a biomass boiler, powered by the product generated during the production process.
