Through Zvijezda’s participation in the “Introduction of cleaner production strategy in the national economy of Croatia” employees were educated on the methodology of cleaner production, which is based on the prevention of waste and emissions emergence at the source.
The goal of introducing new technologies is to reduce negative impacts on the environment and to reduce the discharge of waste substances in water, soil and air. We are working on the optimization of consumption of energy and natural resources as well as the rational exploitation of resources.

With that in mind, we are collecting and recording waste by type and place of origin so we can manage it responsibly.
