Environmental Commitment

environment

We are aware of the challenges that the planet presents us with and that as an organization we can contribute from our position, reducing the impact generated.

Recycling

Within the initiatives that we promote internally, there is recycling and support for the reduction of our Carbon Footprint.

During 2023, we achieved the following recycling and impact reduction figures:

230 trees

175 kilos of plastic

10.231 kilos of paper

One tree for each B&E member

In 2023 we launched our “Barros & Errázuriz Forest” in which we planted 232 native trees. During 2024, for each of our team’s birthdays, a new tree will be added to form a forest with 482 trees by the end of the year.

This is an internal initiative in alliance with Fundación Reforestemos. In this way, we collaborate in the restoration, protection and reforestation of degraded ecosystems.
