ENVIRONMENTAL MEASURES

From the design of a product, the manufacturer must take into account the environmental impacts of the product (use of resources, pollution, etc.) throughout its life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to the end of its life , including manufacturing, distribution and use.

01/

Selection of ingredients and manufacturing processes

The ingredients must be as biodegradable as possible and the manufacturing processes the least polluting possible.

02/

Conditioning

The packaging must be recyclable as much as possible. Packaging in glass, aluminum and recyclable plastic of the PET or HDPE type, or of natural origin is recommended. It is recommended that the paper and cardboard used be made from wood from sustainably managed forests. The manufacture of the inks used must take into account the principles of "Green Chemistry".

Packaging containing PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) or EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is prohibited, as well as the use of propellants of petrochemical origin.

03/

Cleanliness of premises and machines

Cleaning and disinfection products with ecological criteria should be favored (products obtained from natural materials from renewable resources, high biodegradability, low aquatic toxicity).

04/

Waste management

Active participation in the organization of selective waste collection is required. The ecological contribution of recycling waste and packaging will be paid directly to the local community, rather than to private organizations. Selective sorting between plastic, glass, cardboard, paper and other materials must be practiced.

05/

Effluent management

The management of effluents must go through the establishment of a system for the purification of discharges from the activity.

06/

Energy management

Investments in renewable energies and all measures aimed at optimizing energy consumption are encouraged.

07/

Supply

As far as possible, encourage local sourcing, both for ingredients and packaging, in order to reduce the company's ecological footprint.
