An Impact’s Story

Meet our journey in seek for sustainable development

A team with a circular vision

Plastic for the living

Cristina is an Electronic Engineer, and Óscar is an Architect. They are pragmatic people looking for concrete solutions. In the middle of the last decade, they decided to implement an industrial solution that would use discarded plastic as an essential input. Since then, Conceptos Plásticos has become a business group with a triple impact business model (social, environmental and economic) based on the circularity of plastic.
