Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibilities

At Plastoria, we are committed to use better environmental processes by increasing renewable energy and reducing waste and to conduct our business affairs in a socially responsible and ethical manner.

We work together with our factory by using better environmental processes, reducing energy usage and avoiding waste. 90% of our yearly electricity consumption comes from our solar panels. A water recovery system has also been installed in our building. A few years ago, we have proceeded to a complete relighting and engineering of our building in order to significally reduce our energy consumption (led lighting, shader to reduce heat, isolation, ...) We favor as much as possible sea shipment over air shipment. Our goal for 2021 is to have 93% of our imports shipped by sea.

One of the most important points at Plastoria is to develop long lasting and high quality products. The carbon footprint of a product should be seen in its total lifecycle. As a result, long lasting products have overtime a much better CO2 footprint and one of our main goals is to develop products that can last for years and not for weeks or months. We only use FSC paper in our paper products and we are currently changing our packagings from plastic or metal to wood & paper which is 100% recyclable.

Our future targets

We want to replace all plastic packagings by bioplastic.

We are constantly looking for new ecological materials in order to integrate them in all our products.

We want to establish clear CO2 finger print for each product so we can indentify polluting items by offering carbon compensation solutions.

Our main goal is to become a carbon neutral company by 2027.
