Environmental Policy

The environmental policy implemented at AGQ Labs is within ISO 14001 Standards.

AGQ Labs has implemented and certified an Environmental Policy according to ISO 14001. This system is based on a solid integrated performance, whose ultimate goal is to control our activity’s impact on the environment.

This environmental policy involves the application of specific action protocols in developing the different activities and services developed by AGQ Labs.

The different aspects that concern this Management System have been classified as “significant” or “non-significant” depending on the impact they may have on the environment, both in normal circumstances and in “abnormal” or emergency circumstances.

AGQ Labs has outsourced the removal of its waste to specialized and authorized companies:

  • Non-Hazardous Waste Management. This waste is generated in the office activities of AGQ Labs. They are considered “Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)” and include organic waste, paper, household packaging, household glass, batteries, printer toners and ink cartridges, fluorescent tubes, etc.
  • Hazardous Waste Management. These wastes are generated during the most characteristic activities performed at AGQ Labs. Among them are: Halogenated solvents, non-halogenated solvents, acids, bases, laboratory products, and contaminated packaging.

Another of the activities implemented by AGQ Labs within its Environmental Policy is the depreciation of the use of Natural Resources. Among these activities are:

  • Minimization of electricity and water consumption, making rational use of it.
  • Minimization of the use of paper, for which we have established some guidelines for the use of paper, from using chlorine-free paper to using double-sided paper.
