DIA employs innovative measures to prevent environmental degradation and promote profitable and sustainable growth in parallel. The company made responsible use of resources by means of sustainability and eco-design criteria, thanks to which its materials consumption fell by 29% to 15.402 million kilograms.

The most significant reductions were evidenced in the paper and board used for advertising leaflets (36%), followed by shopping receipts (16%), plastic shrink wrapping (10%) and the board used for storage boxes (9%).

DIA manages waste following an established hierarchy of priorities, prioritising prevention and avoiding elimination to the extent possible. Implementation of a waste sorting system in order to facilitate waste management helped ensure that all of the group’s plastic, board and paper waste was recycled in 2015. Moreover, 100% of electric devices and a significant 93.97% of scrap were recycled.
