Sustainable thinking has been integral to our processes and strategic considerations for many years. Processes for the efficient use of recyclate are also firmly established, minimising the amount of waste which accrues at our production sites.
We also attach the highest priority to long service lives. Our plastic sheets are high-tech products which are particularly resistant to ageing and weathering. This means you can rest assured that they will not need to be replaced prematurely.
Our facilities in Nera Montoro, Italy and Tielt, Belgium are certified according to ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System). Under this standard, the environmental impact of the production process is systematically recorded and analysed, and negative effects are continually reduced via specific measures.
Our company is ISCC PLUS-certified. This certification enables recycled materials to be traced along the entire supply chain. Every company within the supply chain must be certified. This provides for fully verifiable materials cycles, ensuring maximum transparency and reliability.
Solar energy for our plant in Nera Montoro
At our Italian plant in Nera Montoro we use solar energy to reduce our products’ ecological footprint. Part of the electricity required for production operations comes from an in-plant photovoltaic system.
Operation Clean Sweep®
This project is aimed at maintaining zero pellet loss during transportation, handling and processing. We have signed up to this pledge in Europe and undertaken corresponding measures. In this way we are actively helping to ensure that no plastics enter the immediate environment, our waters or the oceans from any of our processes.

We support the EU-backed LIFE CLIVUT project in Perugia, Italy. The specific reforestation measures undertaken in this project aim to help combat global
warming. The University of Perugia monitors the reforested areas and documents changes to the climate and the effects of the plants on the respective microclimates.

SP80 boat partnership
Sailing around the world at more than 150 km/h – on wind power alone. The innovative SP80 sailboat aims to demonstrate the potential harboured by renewable forms of energy such as the wind and sun. At the same time, the boat also highlights engineering progress and the opportunities offered by technical advances. We are supporting the team with highly robust, weather-resistant and lightweight polycarbonate sheets used for the cockpit.
