Grifols has 121 hectares of diverse wildlife habitat, adjacent to the production facilities and available for Grifols employees and their families. This protected space provides adequate habitat for many aquatic and terrestrial species.
The conservation activities include the removal of invasive species, the cleaning, the maintenance of trails and favoring in some areas the implantation of native species, both fauna and flora. Grifols participates in the Wildlife at Work and Corporate Lands for Learning programs that are certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council.
North Carolina State University (NCSU) annually visits the property with students who conduct inventories of flora and fauna and advising to improve wildlife protection.
Grifols signed a collaboration agreement in 2014 with the Consortium for the Defense of the Besòs River to carry out rehabilitation actions of the Tenes river paths and a study of the biodiversity improvement in the river environments by monitoring the return of the otter.
Thanks to this collaboration agreement, several roads have been rehabilitated that allow walking, cycling or riding through the surroundings of the Tenes River, from its birth to the mouth.
Other activities carried out are informative sessions to the local communities of the area about these advances and the importance of preserving this environment. Grifols plans to renew this collaboration for the next 3 years by focusing on the study of mammals and fish in the area.
