A constantly evolving CSR policy
We perform annual audits of quality, safety and environment issues to ensure the responsible development of our company. We study each process carefully, making investments that improve infrastructure (machinery, auxiliary equipment, etc.) and allow us to ensure sustainability.
High standards in waste management
Since 1956 we have adhered to a strict environmental policy, making advances in improving waste management by looking for better alternatives. In 2011 we registered a patent for the decontamination of soils contaminated by hydrocarbons in collaboration with the UC.
In terms of energy, less is more
At Tirso we aim to reduce consumption in all our processes. At our new installations we have adopted energy-saving tools, such as collecting rainwater in a cistern and re-using it for sanitation; or improving our electricity consumption through passive measures in the design of our facilities. At present, we are developing a project to generate energy through the installation of a wind turbine.
The goal of global traceability
We work towards the responsible management of all internal company processes: machinery, commercial management and customer service in order to ensure global traceability to our CSR policy.
Training is progress
We support training inside and outside the company. We encourage the specialization of our workers through recycling courses and give universities, institutes, colleges and vocational training centres access to our expertise and facilities.
Family values are commitment, loyalty, trust and long-term vision, all of which are present in the way we do things.
Working with and for people
We are committed to human rights. We work to ensure gender equality in salaries and responsibilities, and pay close attention to the balance between family/home life and work.
