The SDGs and sustainable production

Los ODS y la producción sostenible

At Frutas Poveda we have always been committed to sustainability and environmental protection, so we strive to reduce our footprint on the planet as much as possible, making our production more sustainable.

We seek to consume energy efficiently, improve waste management and monitor our water consumption.

And this, as you know, is very similar to what is proposed by the SDGs, which are only a few years away.

In this article we will talk more in depth about the SDGs and how we work in Frutas Poveda to achieve them and have a more sustainable production.

Let’s get started!

What are the SDGs?

The SDGs or Sustainable Development Goals are 17 goals created by the United Nations General Assembly as a long-term plan to: “achieve a better and more sustainable future for all” and are intended to be achieved by 2030.

Among these 17 goals are some such as: achieving gender equality, ensuring sustainable production, combating climate change or ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages.

Objectives that are directly related to the values of our company and for which we strive to improve on a daily basis.

Why are the SDGs so important for Frutas Poveda?

The SDGs were after all created as a global wake-up call by the United Nations after realizing that we had to act to improve our future by ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

In Frutas Poveda we carry in our DNA this concern for protecting the environment, corporate social responsibility, the fight against poverty and improving the health of society.

Therefore, for years we have had our own action plan that is very much aligned with the SDGs and in which we carry out some actions such as the following:

  • Reduction of our CO₂ emissions thanks to a solar photovoltaic installation for self-consumption.
  • We use plastics that are 100% recyclable and look for similar materials with the same functionality to replace them.
  • We self-manage our waste in order to reduce the impact that this waste may have on the environment.
  • In addition, part of the waste is also managed by authorized external professionals .
  • We give a second life to our raw material, with a portfolio of by-products such as juices, essential oils or jams.
  • As could not be otherwise, we also have a sustainable transportation plan in which we use a fleet of hybrid or low-consumption vehicles and optimize transportation routes.

These are just a few examples of actions we take to meet the SDGs and follow our values.

Actions that, as you can see, may seem simple, but that take a lot of work, although everything is worth it when you believe so much in the reward you will get thanks to that work.

How do we achieve sustainable production?

As we have mentioned above, at Frutas Poveda we have an action plan aligned with the SDGs to achieve a sustainable production of lemons, seedless lemons y stone fruits which in the end are our main products.

There is no point in offering a quality product if what is behind it does not benefit society.

At Frutas Poveda we have always been firmly committed to sustainability and environmental protection. And every day we get a little more involved, making efforts and investments to try to reduce our footprint on the planet as much as possible.

All our actions are directed towards efficient energy consumption, integrated waste management and greater efficiency in water consumption.

Together, for a better planet.
