As part of its social and ecological responsibility, Citrofrut seeks at all times to make its processes an example of sustainability and excellent management of natural resources; in order to give back to the surrounding communities, the country, the world, and above all to the Earth.
For this reason, it is worth highlighting the effort that has been made to increase the use of renewable energies in the plants’ operations; achieving that a significant percentage of the electric energy of Citrofrut’s plants comes from renewable sources.
The Paso Largo plant, located in the municipality of San Rafael, Veracruz, has achieved that 63 percent of the energy used in this plant comes from a renewable source, while the Alamo plant, located in the same state, uses 48 percent of renewable energy for its operation.
In the state of San Luis Potosí, where two more Citrofrut plants are located, the results have been equally satisfactory: the Huichihuayán plant achieved 52 percent of renewable energy for its operation, while the PTAR Huichihuayán plant uses 53 percent.
Despite the fact that in 2019, the world emitted 0.6 percent more CO2 into the atmosphere; Citrofrut reduced its emissions by 4,695 tons, something that demonstrates the commitment to sustainability and care for the Earth.
These actions are part of a set of measures that the company has decided to take in order to continue producing to bring the highest quality to its customers, but also as a way to send a message of how sustainable production is possible.
