COSMOS understands sustainability as a permanent evolving commitment. As a team, as an industry, we work every day investing on resources, services, activities and business strategies that could bring a fresh and innovative approach to this global concern, not only to meet the demands and standards but also to boost them.

1. Commitment to the 2030 Agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development goals

In 2015, leaders from around the world signed a 10-principle agreement establishing objectives and goals to mitigate the effects of climate change and promote the sustainability and equity of productive systems and social and economic equality before 2030.

At COSMOS, we are committed to integrate these principles as a substantial part of our strategy, culture and day-to-day operations and also to extend this responsibility to our stakeholders and general public.

To assume this responsibility, we will initially address those focused on the Sustainable Development goals:

  • SDG 6. Clean water and sanitation
  • SDG 9. Industry innovation and infrastructure
  • SDG 11. Sustainable cities and communities

2. Designs and production systems based on the Circular Economy

The Circular Economy arose as a true alternative to the current "extract, produce and waste" economic model and its highly damaging impact on the planet. As specialists, we are committed to finding new ways of incorporating these principles during design, construction and operation phases and also help minimizing pollution and waste; suggesting alternative materials and strategies for reuse and promoting the use of renewable energy sources.
