Children's Drawing Competition at ICT Ibérica
Year after year, our traditional Children's Christmas Drawing Competition has had such a great acceptance that we have already launched its 9th edition.
This time we received altogether 83 drawings that fill our company with the magic of Christmas. The decision was very difficult to make, but after the popular vote and the final choice of the jury, the result is as follows:
In the 0 to 4 years category we received 20 drawings, and the selected finalists are: Mateo Peiró (3 years old), Alma Sesé (4 years old), Pablo Gómez (4 years old) and Marcos Lacuey (2 years old). The winner is Alma Sesé.
In the 5 to 8 years category we received 30 drawings, and the selected finalists are: Lucas Peiró (6 years old), Anayet Alcaine (6 years old) and Adrián Gómez (7 years old). The winner, Anayet Alcaine.
In the 9 to 12 years category we received 33 drawings, and the selected finalists are: Mónica Aliaga (9 years old), Ixeia Alcaine (9 years old) and Lucía Gámez (12 years old). The winning drawing in this category is the drawing of Ixeia Alcaine.
Many thanks to all the children for participating and surprising us with their beautiful drawings once again this year! And congratulations to the three winners of this edition!
ICT Ibérica on the road to circular economy
Committed to environmental protection and sustainable growth, in 2019 we decided to go for a circular economy model implementing a cardboard core reuse project.
Following this path, we launch a new project that aims to make the best use of cellulose pulp.
The optimisation of our processes and the use of the best available technologies has allowed us to close the circle, achieving zero waste in the tissue manufacturing.
In addition, with this optimisation we have managed to reduce the overall non-hazardous waste fraction by 43%.
ICT Ibérica participates in the 8th ESIC Business Race
Once again this year, ICT Ibérica has supported all staff members who wanted to take part in the ESIC Business Race by taking care of their registration and providing each member with a Foxy team T-shirt.
An essentially team-based race where all team members must belong to the same company, start at the same time and cross the finish line together, thus promoting team values between colleagues and integrating sport and its health benefits into the company's culture.
The race included an 8km route through the centre of Zaragoza. Nearly 4,000 professionals from more than 400 companies and the public administration took part in the event.
This year, a total of 16 men and women participated, divided into 3 men’s teams and 2 mixed teams of men and women, together with 1 teammate who participated as an individual.
8 km where there was no lack of teamwork, fun, effort, companionship and the desire to excel. Congratulations to all our runners who, with enthusiasm and effort, have joined in, representing the company with their participation!
ICT Ibérica SAP roll-out: the ICT group's digital transformation process continues
After a period of stabilisation of the Model Company prepared for the ICT Group, the Kick-off of the “SAP roll-out” project of ICT Ibérica was held on 19 October in Saragozza.
Together with the project team and external partners, the focus was on the essential elements to ensure a successful journey, in terms of Model Company adoption and change management.
The solution was developed on SAP S/4 HANA and the evolution roadmap foresees its implementation in the other Group companies as well.
The digital transformation plan that ICT is pursuing is an opportunity for organisational innovation, process optimisation and people development, whose contribution will be the key lever to overcome this further challenge.
A medal-worthy race
This year, for the fourth time, ICT Poland’s representatives participated in the National Women’s and Men’s Road Race “Kostrzyńska Dziesiątka” [“The Ten of Kostrzyn”]. With great determination, for the third time now, the team won first place in the Team Championship for Corporate Employees, which means that ICT Poland is still undefeated in this category since 2019.
ICT France: a new handkerchief production line
As part of the development of its activities and its product offer to its customers, ICT has decided to acquire a converting machine intended to produce folded handkerchiefs.
In order to best meet demand, ICT is investing in the fastest folder and wrapper in the world. It is a type 624 R machine, manufactured by the German company W+D (Winkler + Dünnebier), leader in its segment.
This latest generation line has an exceptional production speed of up to 10,000 tissues per minute.
It also has particularly advanced ergonomic and ease of operation characteristics, allowing for example easier changes, and is renowned for being highly reliable.
The installation will take place during the last quarter, to go into production early next year.
The Converting teams are already at work to make this future launch a success.
In addition, this project was selected as part of the support system for industrial investment in the territories and the National Recovery plan, with the State thus participating in part in its financing.
This is a new mark of confidence from the ICT Group in its French subsidiary, which we must once again be collectively proud and honored.
FSC® Core Labour Requirements: Europaper S.p.a. towards the new Versions of Chain of Custody Standard version too
As already announced in a previous news, the Forest Stewardship Council® has released in September 2021 new Core Labour Requirements in its chain of custody certification standard, to provide added protection for workers’ rights in FSC® certified operations.
The new standard focuses on ILO declaration and conventions, with special regards to:
- Child Labour abolition
- Prevention of any form of Forced Labour
- No Discriminations, to ensure equal access to occupation and professional growth
- Freedom of Association and effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining
In that contest, Europaper S.p.a in full compliance with ICT Group policy, will also adopt the new version of the standard FSC-STD-40-004 (V3-1) since of next re-certification audit planned in the next months.
A step ahead to confirm the protection of workers’ rights has always been part of our commitments and the base of our Policy and Mission.
This year from 24th to 30th September is the FSC forest week!
The theme of the campaign this year is “Choose Forests. Choose FSC.” By choosing FSC-certified products, we are helping to protect forests and all the life they sustain. Forests play a key role in combatting climate change and supporting biodiversity.
We are proud to be chain of custody certified since january 2002
