Making every drop count

In 2022 our total water withdrawal was 396.9 ML, with 69.8% from the public supply network and 30.2% from groundwater.

In 2022 our water withdrawal increased by 209.2% (compared to 2021). This is due to the acquisition of the recycling plants, Ecoibéria and WorldPET. Recycling is a water intensive process and the integration of these new businesses skews our metrics as 68.7% of the water withdrawal is from both companies.

We use Aqueduct's Global Water Risk Mapping tool from the World Resources Institute (WRI) to understand which plants operate in high water-stressed areas so we can implement tailored actions.

In 2022, Logoplaste withdrew 24.0 ML of water from areas with high to extremely high-water stress, a 30% increase from 2021, and corresponds to 6.1% of Logoplaste’s total water withdrawal in 2022. This is due to new start-ups locations.

Operation Clean Sweep.
At Logoplaste, every pellet is accounted for

We are committed to preventing pollution of the marine environment, with ZERO pellet loss.

For the past 10 years, Logoplaste has supported the industry’s Operation Clean Sweep (OCS). Many plants have developed and adopted effective measures to prevent resin pellets and small pieces of plastic from entering the marine environment via drains or streams.

A typical delivery of 28 tons of material can contain 40 million pellets. A spill of 0.01% represents over 4 000 pellets. If these pellets are left unchecked, they can enter the water system and cause marine pollution.


In 2021 we signed the OCS pledge for all plants handling resins and we rolled out:

  • Self-audit based on good practices
  • Training material
  • A guide to OCS implementation
  • Internal awareness via Logo TV (our global, internal television network) , intranet, and global emails
  • Follow-up survey to check compliance


All plants were audited, resulting in the identification of 311 improvement actions.

As of 2022, Logoplaste conducts an annual self-audit using a global digital platform that gives us real time data, reports, and action plans, all one click away.
