KNOWING ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT : OUR CARBON BALANCE
decomatic followed its environmental approach by realizing its first carbon balance in 2009. Carbon balance is a method of accounting for greenhouse gas emissions. It allows a good assessment of direct emissions induced by our activity.
This periodical balance participates in the quantification of the ecological impact.
The complete integration of our printing process is realized by taking into account ambitious elimination processes such as COV rejections and aqueous rejections removal :
- Use of watery based ink in the production line
- Laser cleaning
- Carbon balance
- Fire retention basin taking wildlife into account
- Installation of beehives, flowery fallow, insect hotel
decomatic has been certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management since September 1998.
