The year 2022 will probably be remembered as the year in which the biggest global health crisis, caused by COVID-19, gradually faded until it practically disappeared from the agenda.
Despite the uncertainties, for Ismael Quesada, 2022 has been a positive exercise in its economic results, with a notable increase in turnover that confirms the success of its strategic decisions.
In terms of sustainability, progress has followed the line marked in previous exercises. The challenge of achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2030 remains and is closer.
Ismael Quesada, its value chain and all its stakeholders progress by sharing and adding value on the path to sustainability.
Thank you for being part of this dream.
