Lusocal focus on sustainability


Recycled materials, biodegradable products and renewable energy. The Portuguese-based components company is embracing global sustainability and cross-sectoral policies in its productive process

Each year, the company re-introduces roughly 60 tons of scraps and leftovers from its activities into the manufacturing process. This results in new ranges of recycled products reaching the market.

Besides using recycled materials, Lusocal has a line of certified products which are 100% biodegradable and produced with biodegradable cotton and polymers.

In addition to these sustainable products, Lusocal also uses renewable energy, and has installed photovoltaic panels that guarantee 60% of the consumed energy: “Besides producing the majority of energy we use, all the remaining consumed energy comes from renewable sources”, confirms Tiago Henriques, General Manager of the company.

In the short term the company also aims to change its vehicle’s structure and in two year the objective is to have it 100% of electric cars.
