Today, May 17 , MAPFRE joins World Recycling Day, a date on which the company shows its commitment to sustainability and the circular economy, one of the main challenges the world faces.
In this sense, MAPFRE aspires to become a benchmark company in this production model, which, according to the company, makes it possible to generate business opportunities while protecting the environment and society.
The Group promotes the responsible consumption of resources, as well as the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste, thus reducing landfilling. It also carries out actions to combat food waste and hires managers with business models that are in line with the principles of circularity.
Thus, last year, a total of 3,112 tons of waste was generated throughout the Group, of which 2,960 tons, or 95% of the total, were subjected to valorization processes, i.e. recovery, recycling and energy production.
Among its main milestones in 2021, it prevented the consumption of 1,132 tons of paper thanks to the biometric electronic signature. It reused 49% of the total IT equipment waste in Spain, donated 41,149 kg of the Group’s IT equipment, and recycled 351 tons of waste in four buildings, which represents 92% of the waste generated by the company at its corporate headquarters in Spain. This latest achievement was possible thanks to the “Zero Waste” project, a certificate granted by AENOR to companies that classify the waste they generate so that it can be reused or recycled and does not end up in a landfill. MAPFRE will bring the project to countries such as Brazil, Mexico and Puerto Rico by 2024.
It has also eliminated all single-use plastic bottles and cups thanks to the “MAPFRE Plastic-Free” project.
Thousands of recycled car parts
The company has also treated a total of 38,819 end-of-life vehicles, from which it has recovered 156,948 parts for reuse in different markets, thanks to CESVIMAP, the MAPFRE Road Safety and Experimentation Center. This global technology center specializes in vehicle repair and recycling, among other services, and is a reference in how to dispose of vehicles in a sustainable way, extending the life of parts, facilitating the reuse of raw materials, such as plastic and glass, and reducing energy consumption.
MAPFRE’s 2030 Environmental Footprint Plan sets an ambitious recovery target for the coming years: to make use of 84% of the waste generated by the Group in the countries where it operates by 2024, and 90% by 2030.
