SAILING TOWARD A BRIGHT FUTURE:
Our Commitment to Society and the Environment.
44 years ago, Proa Internacional was born as an importer and exporter of fishing products, eventually becoming a leader in Spain in refrigerated storage, freezing, and the distribution of seafood products.
It is through its management’s hard work and dedication that it bears fruit, achieving a team that reflects its ideas for a more sustainable world.
In July 2021, Proa Internacional earned the ISO 9001 certification, a merit achieved through the conviction of everyone involved in implementing the Quality Management System.
In its commitment to a more sustainable planet, Proa Internacional set another challenge for itself and has successfully obtained certification in ISO 50001, a standard that establishes requirements for maintaining and improving an energy management system to achieve continuous improvement in energy performance.
The union formed by the Quality and Environment department, along with the maintenance and energy monitoring area, makes it possible for Proa Internacional to be recognized with «ISO 50001 certification with the ability to demonstrate how energy is consumed in our value chain, increasing environmental performance. Similarly, it enables us to measure, compare, and present our progress in energy efficiency to stakeholders, complying with legal regulations, requirements, and quality standards, as well as certification audits.»
With the addition of this certification, Proa Internacional fulfills one of its main objectives by integrating responsible energy management into all processes, from purchasing energy with 100% renewable origin certification to energy-saving measures. It also allows for greater transparency by implementing best practices in energy management, optimizing energy performance systematically, and promoting more efficient energy management fully aligned with the organization’s culture and strategic objectives, helping to drive cultural change through awareness-raising actions and personnel training.
The implementation of this standard also enables Proa Internacional to achieve an optimal level in energy consumption, promoting best practices and strengthening responsible management with detailed analysis of energy flows and consumption models of the company, conveying all its efforts in this matter. In summary, ISO 50001 enables the reduction of energy consumption, minimization of the carbon footprint, and cost reduction by promoting sustainable energy use.
