Carbon Neutrality

All operations in our value chain, from production to logistics to distribution, generate environmental impacts that the company is committed to minimising. A relevant approach to impact reduction begins with carbon footprinting and life cycle analysis.

Energy: being an exemplary industrialist

In addition to reducing our consumption, we are acting on the origin of energy to promote renewable sources. For the past 4 years, 100% of our electricity has come from certified hydropower purchases. Through the purchase of Guarantee of Origin Certificates, we contribute to the financing of the renewable energy sector.
