La sostenibilidad es una prioridad para Loro Parque

 

Nuestras instalaciones, nuestra tecnología y nuestros procesos se abordan siempre desde la perspectiva de la conservación, la responsabilidad, la optimización de recursos y la protección de las especies y el medioambiente.

Plastic Free

We have implemented a policy of eliminating single-use plastic. Our restaurants use compostable tableware, we have eliminated single-dose options, our transparent packaging is made from corn and beet polymers, we have installed water fountains in staff areas….

Our plastic-free initiative extends to all departments and processes. For products from external suppliers, we have incorporated a policy of return and reuse of items containing plastic.

Kilometre 0

Loro Parque’s purchasing and acquisition policy is based on the selection of Kilometre 0 products certified by eco-labels. At present, Loro Parque has its own agricultural production, which is certified by the Instituto Canario de Calidad Agroalimentaria (Canary Islands Institute of Agri-Food Quality).

External suppliers are only chosen when there is insufficient supply in Tenerife or the Canary Islands.

Energy and water

We optimise the use of energy and water minimising consumption and choosing suppliers that use renewable energy sources. The fleet of vehicles in the park is being renewed with electric models with zero emissions. Machinery and systems are rigorously maintained to avoid energy leaks. 80% of the park’s electricity comes from our solar plants and wind turbines. At present, Loro Parque Group generates:

4Mw of wind energy in Telde + 2Mw of solar energy in Arico + 140Kw from Poema del Mar + 2Mw generated at ITER. A total of more than 8Mw.

Our goal is to achieve a self-sufficient and self-sustainable model.

Carbon footprint

Loro Parque offsets its CO2 emissions, and even has a negative carbon footprint. In other words, it generates a positive impact on carbon emissions.

Due to the solar plants and wind turbines installed in the archipelago, the park offsets its carbon footprint. Reaching total values of over 8,75Mw.

Waste management

The waste management process is continuously optimised. All waste generated by the park and its visitors is responsibly managed by the relevant departments and removed by authorised waste managers. There are bins and containers in the facilities for the correct separation of waste and its subsequent recycling.

Composting

Loro Parque, throughout its history, has been a champion of sustainability, the rational use of resources and the minimisation of its environmental impact as the main tools to support a circular economy.

In our organisation, composting is a natural step towards achieving the group’s sustainability goals. This composting translates into a reduction in expenditure on phytosanitary fertilisers, thus closing the cycle of bio-waste generated by the group’s activities and caring for our soils by improving the fertility and growth of plants in all our green areas and agricultural holdings.

Organic and biodegradable solutions

As part of our informative and educational work on biodiversity of the park and the planet, we opt for the use of organic and environmentally friendly phytosanitary products and fertilisers. We seek and implement as many alternatives to the use of conventional chemical products as the market offers.
