Natural capital and biodiversity


We have developed the concept of our environmental management towards a focus based on valuing natural capital; in other words, the renewable and non-renewable natural assets available in nature (plants, minerals, animals, air, oil, oxygen, water, etc.), as well as identifying and valuing the relationships and impacts (negative and positive) of our actions.  

In order to demonstrate this commitment, we have joined the Biodiversity Agreement, which recognises that conserving biological diversity is in the interest of all humanity, given its importance for life on earth, the well-being of society and economic development.
