Environment

Valembal has always been committed to environmental protection and sustainable development. We recycle 100% of our production waste and we are constantly on the lookout for simple actions to reduce our carbon footprint :

  • we study with customers the possibility of using thinner materials
  • we promote “recycled polyethylene” as an alternative
  • we have developed a range of biodegradable products
  • we have reduced our use of stretch film by 25%
  • we have rationalized our energy consumption (closed-circuit water network, controlled air compression, etc.)
  • we use no pesticides in our green spaces
  • we operate a staff car-pooling system
  • we make all our packaging cartons from recycled waste

Enterprise societal responsibility

Some years ago, Valembal committed itself to an Enterprise Social Responsibility policy as a means of contributing to our community’s sustainable social and economic development goals.

The Loiret Nature Environnement association assisted us in this project. In conformance with the ISO 26000 social responsibility guidance standard, it conducted an audit of our activities, focusing on seven essential issues :

  • enterprise governance
  • industrial relations and working conditions
  • respect of human rights
  • consumer protection
  • ethical business practice
  • contributions to local development
  • environmental protection

Following this assessment, Valembal is confident that its industrial practices and conduct based on moral responsibility will continue to conform to current societal norms.
