Olot Meats has signed a collaboration agreement with the Consorci Forestal de Catalunya -the association of forest owners, founded in 1948 in Santa Coloma de Farners, which has become the main forestry association in the country- and the Fundació Agrària Boscos , for the improvement of the forests of La Garrotxa and to be able to contribute to the global challenges of the environmental crisis. These challenges, applied to forests, include increasing CO2 emissions, preventing fires, preserving biodiversity, harnessing water and combating the climate emergency.

The conservation and improvement of the forest area (which occupies 60% of the surface of Catalonia), is key for the country. Catalan forests are immersed in a process of expansion and transformation caused, among other factors, by the profound socio-economic changes that the rural world has undergone since the middle of the last century and by the impact of climate change. Sustainable forest management is the tool that guarantees that forestry activity brings environmental, social and economic benefits and that it improves the current and future functions of forests.

Olot Meats has allocated € 0.3 million to the creation of a new car park for 125 spaces in the Pla de Baix d’Olot industrial estate, which has already entered service. It has a mixed use, for the workers of the companies of the industrial estate on weekdays and for the families of the users of the sports facilities of the Morrot field, on weekends and holidays.
Located right next to the field, the facility emerged as an initiative promoted by Noel Alimentària, the City Council of Olot and Olot Meats and responds to the parking needs detected in the estate.
The company is also equipping itself with photovoltaic panels to operate 24 hours a day with clean, non-polluting energy, which is environmentally friendly and generates maximum efficiency and savings.
