Eco-sustainable behavior

While we improve the lives of our customers, we also pay attention to the health of the environment. For this reason, our company has an eco-sustainable behavior that we trace throughout the production process, from the raw material to the finished product. 

We buy cellulose from sustainable forests. We strive every day to reduce the consumption of raw materials and save natural and water resources. Our packs are increasingly compact, to have the least possible impact on storage volumes and decrease the impact on the transport and production of waste. We recover and reuse the thermal energy that we produce during the manufacturing processes thanks to a cogeneration plant.
