Project Overview: 

Plataforma Logistica Leon is one of Zara's logistics centers located in the province of Leon, Spain. It has a floor area of 40,000 m2. This logistics center is responsible for distributing clothing to the southern hemisphere market for the women's and men's sections. Products are received either in boxes or in hanging garments and are distributed in box format.

Inditex is committed to achieving zero waste in global operations by the end of 2023. The company's goal is for waste to be collected and properly managed at its corporate headquarters, logistics centers, factories and warehouses for possible reuse or recycling. This challenge not only involves properly sorting the various materials for treatment and subsequent recycling, but also presents an opportunity to rethink its processes to avoid generating waste in the first place and instead maximize the use of those resources in its design, logistics, storage and end-of-life operations.

As concrete examples of this approach is the Green To Pack program. This program is based on circular economy concepts and sets standards for the quality of its packaging, extending its useful life and recycling it once it has served its purpose.
