IBERFOIL IS RECOGNISED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF ARAGON WITH THE ARAGON CIRCULAR SEAL OF APPROVAL

Within the Circular Economy investment criterion, Iberfoil has obtained the best score thanks to its Iberfoil Integra project, an essential and strategic initiative for Spain.

Iberfoil Aragon, has been recognised by the Government of Aragon with the Aragon Circular Seal, which guarantees that the company complies with the standards specified by the regional administration in its Order EPE18/2022 of 21 January on Sustainability and Circular Economy.

For the award of this seal, the technicians of the Government of Aragon have assessed Iberfoil‘s degree of implementation of the Circular Economy principles in its management, its impact along the value chain and its contribution to achieving a more sustainable, decarbonised, resource-efficient and competitive economy.

Likewise, among other aspects of Iberfoil‘s activity, the eco-design of its products, the exhaustive analysis of their life cycle and the current certifications related to circularity of the company have been highlighted.

Specifically in the evaluation criterion relating to investment in the Circular Economy, Iberfoil has obtained the best score thanks to its Iberfoil Integra project, an initiative that is essential and strategic for Spain due to its circularity, as it will melt aluminium scrap to convert it into new green aluminium.

The Aragon Circular project was born in 2020 as a sign of the Government of Aragon‘s commitment to the circular economy. Its objective is to create a political, economic and social framework that allows Aragon to transition towards an innovative circular economy, generating quality employment and structuring the territory.

The award ceremony of the Aragon Circular Seal, chaired by Javier Lambán, President of the Government of Aragon, and with the presence of Marta Gastón, Minister of Economy, Planning and Employment of the Government of Aragon, took place on January 31st, in the Sala de la Corona of the Pignatelli Building, headquarters of the regional government.
