The ValGroup has a solid track record of investing in innovative recycling technologies such as our Solvent Recycling Plant, which is able to recycle virtually all solvent that is used at Tecnoval’s plant in Lorena. It not only reduces our carbon footprint significantly but also protects the atmosphere and the environment securing clean air for future generations.
Moreover, in line with our sustainability goals, a significant percentage of the Group’s purchased power comes from renewable sources. Additionally, ValGroup is also investing in renewable energy projects such as wind turbines in the US and hydroelectric power stations in Brazil which would help us increase the share of renewable energy in the company energy mix fast-tracking the journey towards a sustainable world.
