Elmubas Petfoodgroup committed to sustainable development

The Board of Elmubas Petfoodgroup is aware of our responsibility in the performance of our activity, and therefore we are committed to contribute to sustainability, basing our projects on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

Reducing our carbon footprint

Aware of the threat posed by climate change and the depletion of natural resources, we are working to reduce our carbon footprint. During 2022, we have identified the impact points of our company in order to take compensatory measures and we are committed to contracting renewable-green energy.


As part of the plastics campaign, we are currently using 50-80% recycled material in our secondary packaging materials and our target is to reach 100% by the end of 2022. We already have recyclable packaging alternatives for our customers and we are working to be able to offer packaging with recycled material Food Contact.

Circular Economy

Furthermore, the basis for the development and manufacture of our products is based on the principles of the circular economy. We collaborate with different companies in the food sector in the reuse of surpluses generated by their activity, closing the production cycle and contributing to zero waste. The latest has been the BioPRO R&D project. A project to obtain a new process within the bioeconomy. A platform that for the first time integrates bioconversion stages (using fungi and insects) with biorefinery to obtain extracts of interest, with both nutritional and technological functionalities, and their incorporation into new products for human and animal food.

SDGs Diagnostic Tool

Another collaborative project to be highlighted in 2022 is the one carried out, together with the Basque Food Cluster and several companies in the food sector, in the development of a telematic tool for diagnosing SDGs for companies in the food sector.

And all this would not make sense without a gender perspective, which, thanks to the solid base provided by our equality plan and the awareness-raising, sensitisation and training work carried out, gender equality is becoming a reality. For Elmubas Petfoodgroup, its employees are its most important asset.
