ONE PLANET, ONE PRIORITY IS AN ATTITUDEOur way of showing our commitment to the environment, to our customers who are increasingly eco aware from an early age, and to the suppliers we work with, those who put most effort into caring for our planet. At MYTA our absolute priority is to improve day by day and to demonstrate our commitment to the planet.
WE GIVE BACK TO NATURE MORE THAN WE GET
Each mining plan goes hand in hand with the corresponding restoration plan.
Where before there were mines there are now a thousand native trees growing, which represents a production of 20 tons of oxygen per year.
In total we have restored 54 hectares. We have planted 660 almond trees producing 6600 kg of almonds/year. More than 32 tons of barley are harvested each year for cattle feed. Pasture land has been re-sowed for grazing by local shepherds’ flocks. And all of the area is accessible thanks to the roads and tracks we have created.
Once a mining operation is completed in an area, the land is returned to its original state, allowing new agricultural and livestock uses or its integration into the natural landscape it forms parts of.

Lastly, our products are grouped together and dispatched on the world’s most ecological pallets, according to ISO 14044 management standard.
WE TAKE CARE OF THE PLANET BY MAKING MAXIMUM USE OF THE RESOURCES IT PROVIDES
MYTA implements energy-efficiency plans to help leave as little a footprint on the planet as possible.
We collect rainwater in natural ponds at our mines to use it during dry periods to water our mining tracks. We have made use more than 10 million litres of water in this way.
In mineral drying processes we reduce our use of energy from non-renewable sources by employing solar energy.
We apply responsible consumption at our plant. We have ISO 14000 certification establishing the regulations and guidelines to be followed for efficient environmental management.
WE PROTECT OUR PLANET BY STUDYING WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN INCREASE OUR EFFICIENCY DAY BY DAY
Our company is environmentally-committed, environmentally-responsible and has quality and environmental certifications, energy efficiency studies and extensive control of its processes.
Calculating our carbon footprint is the first step towards implementing a low carbon strategy. It has enabled us to pinpoint opportunities for reducing greenhouse gases, define key objectives and take the most appropriate measures in relation to sustainability and to combating climate change.
Reducing our environmental footprint is possible thanks to Myta’s policies which are aimed at increasing fossil fuel savings and prioritizing the use of bio-fuels that have less greenhouse gas emissions. Likewise our efficient logistics system optimizes delivery routes to save on fuels and CO2 emission.
MYTA has ISO 14000 Environmental Management certification.
