We control our environmental impact, by optimising our processes all along our value chain, to take only what is needed and limit our consumption of drinking water.
We reduce our manufacturing waste by recycling it or reintegrating it into the production process.

At Tejas Borja, 100% of manufacturing waste is recycled and reintegrated into the process.

We work to preserve the flora and fauna on our sites.
And because we firmly believe that another way of living on Earth is possible, we develop sustainable, innovative and respectful solutions for the future, designed to build the homes of tomorrow.

With our ancestral skill set, our dearest wish is to be involved in projects

that enhance the heritage of the regions where we are based.
