Environmental responsibility

For the DAP Group, the importance of the environment is as fundamental as production, that is why we are committed to compliance with national and international regulations and the responsibility to protect and conserve the environment.

DAP develops an Environmental Management Plan based on its activities as follows:

Waste Management:
Every year Capacities on the handling of residential, dangerous and special waste are carried out in all the DAP Farms, since it is of the utmost importance that all the actors know the importance of it, besides the separation of residues in origin is practiced, and these are arranged in booths classified according to type of waste. All the waste is classified according to its type, the empty containers of agricultural production are also arranged in special booths after performing the triple washing and drilling. This waste is removed by outsourced companies specialized in the final disposal of the same.

Protection of Biodiversity, Air Quality and Energy Efficiency:
DAP has forest reserves maintained not only complying with the National Legal Regulation to maintain 25% of its forests, it also has an area of more than 1500 hectares registered under the name of Environmental Services. It is in this way that the DAP Group, assuming its environmental responsibility and through its forest reserves in all the Farms in which it operates, maintains its regional and global commitment to the protection of the environment and the reduction of greenhouse gases. In addition, thanks to the maintenance of forest reserves, DAP encourages the use of Clean Energy, reducing annually the amount of energy used in its production, thus helping to improve air quality.

Water Management:
DAP promotes the saving and sustainable use of water in all its farms, promotes the protection of bodies and water sources and invests in the improvement of infrastructures linked to the best use of water resources, conducts annual biological, physical and chemical analyzes of all water courses and also of human consumption. Complying with national regulations, all Subterraneous Wells are registered in the Water Resources Directorate of the Environment Secretariat.
