Circularity to advance

"In nature, nothing is wasted. Everything is transformed and reused in the same cycle. Nature is our reference for our circular economy model with the aim of returning our products and waste to the useful life cycle"

Circularity strategy

Gestamp understands circularity as one of the basic pillars of sustainability since, on one hand, it contributes to the reduction of mineral extraction (mainly iron and aluminum), one of the aspects with the greatest environmental impact in the life cycle of Gestamp's products, and on the other hand, it promotes the optimization of waste management.

At Gestamp, R&D supports the approval of new materials (low emission, recycled, etc.) and we encourage co-development throughout the value chain in order to design the product needed for the mobility of the future. 

In 2022, Gestamp acquires a strategic stake in Gescrap: a multinational group dedicated to metal recycling and total waste management for the industry and leader in Europe regarding the management of high-quality scrap. Gestamp seeks to enhance the circularity of its business model, promoting the use of its scrap as a secondary raw material in the production of low-emission steel.

Product life cycle analysis as a strategic element

Gestamp relies on life cycle analysis as a differential element in the development of its parts. These analyses provide a global perspective of the complete life cycle of products in the development phase, making it possible to visualize the impact on use and end of life.

This study is decisive when co-designing a part, as it helps to reliably value and quantify Gestamp's circularity strategy.

Waste management

Gestamp has a waste management model that promotes responsible waste treatment practices. More than 98% of Gestamp's waste is recycled, reused, and recovered instead of being deposited in landfills.
