Celtejo with Open Doors

In the last three years Celtejo has invested more than 130 million euros to improve its environmental performance and, in order to inform the community about the impacts and improvements in its performance, Celtejo promoted the event ‘Celtejo de Portas Abertas’.

The event was attended by several Altri representatives, regional mayors, environmental associations and several media.

The main goal of this action was to answer and clarify all doubts related to the real impact of Vila Velha de Ródão in the Tejo river, reported in the media by the pollution in the river, generally aimed at the productive fabric of the municipality. The examples presented at the Celtejo de Portas Abertas event are a sample of the scope and complexity of the various measures implemented by Altri related to the circular economy and aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

During the event, the projects and results of the various initiatives carried out to reduce the negative impacts of Celtejo’s activity were presented, with time for questions. This was followed by a visit to the mill and the WWTP to allow participants to see how the company’s activity is proceeding.

At the end of the event, the participants were informed about the various measures and actions developed by Celtejo, concluding that the quality of the effluent may exceed the quality of the Tagus water.
