RESPECT FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT AND HERITAGE
Today, we are all aware of the challenges of global warming.
As an industrialist, we need to think about ways to produce and consume better.
Each of us prefers to use natural materials that are healthier for our health and the environment.
Our products have been developed with the aim of achieving more effective, sustainable treatments, in line with the environment consideration and project substrates. Mineralization involves the addition of silica into the material. Silica has the same life span as glass, about 4000 years. It is one of the main components of our planet and does not come from fossil fuels. Existing in harmony with the environment and materials, mineralization is not sensitive to UV radiation or abrasion and therefore does not release any decomposition products.
In 2007, we signed up to the Ideal Charter 79. The purpose of this charter is to combine corporate efforts to improve production and reduce waste. In accordance with our commitments, we have made the following improvements:
Today, 98% of our waste is recovered and recycled at production. Our raw material containers are systematically rinsed.
The rinsing water is reintegrated into our preparations. The containers are reused for the distribution of our products. We use the packaging of raw materials for packaging products for sudsequent transportation and minimize the amount of packaging.
All of our lift trucks are now electric, to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Following the work carried out on our production site in 2009, the entire building has been isolated in order to minimize the heating needs for the frost-free maintenance of our products.
All lighting on the site has been replaced by low energy light bulbs. The translucent plates on the roof have been replaced and their surface doubled, to avoid the need for artificial lighting during the day.
In the context of the principles of sustainable development, we have optimized our production processes to the maximum to reduce our energy consumption. All the measures we have taken have reduced our electricity consumption by 30%, direct greenhouse gas emissions by 100% and non-recycled waste by 98%. An environmentally friendly approach is a necessity for the future of our planet and a real commitment for our company.
