Environmental protection

Protecting the natural environment has been a long-term goal of our company. Our effort is to minimize the impact of our activities to the environment and to continuously improve our environmental performance. We are all committed, both management and staff, not only to comply with national and European legislation but also to promote green growth programs to achieve this goal.

Energy footprint

Through the renewal of the equipment, the optimization of the processes and the redesign of products, we contribute decisively to the reduction of the energy footprint of our company.

Indicatively we can mention the following:

  • Use of advanced raw materials that require lower temperatures (less energy) for heat treatment. On average, we have reduced the processing temperatures of raw materials by 15 degrees Celsius. This translates into about 10% less energy demand for heat.
  • With the use of recycled raw materials, we achieve lower greenhouse gas emissions by 65-70% compared to the primary raw materials. This means that by increasing the share of regenerated raw material in our total production, we are helping reduce greenhouse gas emission.
  • For the cooling of the equipment during the production process we use a closed cooling circuit which contributes in our saving energy and water resources.

 

Zero waste

Our company is aiming in achieving a continuous reduction of the produced waste.

The internal recycling system we use consists of plastic crushers, so that the products discarded from the production process as well as returns from customers or even old items that do not show commercial use, are used 100%. So we practically ensure that we have zero plastic disposal from our production process itself.

Regarding the packaging materials which are used in our premises, both incoming and outgoing, we are managint them in the most formal and appropriate way. More specifically, the first and auxiliary raw materials that we procure, which are packaged in plastic - paper - cardboard - metal, etc., are driven after unpacking and sorting - separation, to certified recyclers who manage them further. All data concerning the types of packaging, the individual quantities and the companies that receive them, are registered in detail and officially in the USA. (Electronic Waste Register).

On the other hand, the packaging of the products that we supply the market (cardboard and plastic) are registered in  Hellenic Recycling Utilization Company and Hellenic Recycling Organization and the corresponding fee is being paid. 

Finally, in the context of the ongoing improvement that we seek at all levels, the company's Environmental Management System conforms with the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
