Today, wood is a great alternative for building healthier environments that help to improve people's lives.
Natural, recyclable and renewable, wood production is energy efficient, generates less waste and has a much lower environmental impact compared to other materials such as metal or cement, as it contributes to the absorption of CO2.
At Onesta, we are firmly committed to the environment, which is why we manage our resources efficiently and work to strengthen a business model focused on economic growth with stable and firm alliances that promote and develop new materials of organic origin that favour the decarbonisation of the economy and help to improve the lives of present and future generations.
For this purpose, we work hand in hand with the main national and international associations and certification bodies committed to sustainability.
