2.1 LIMITING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

OUR ISO 14001 CERTIFICATION GUARANTEES OUR ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Cider Group includes respect for the environment in the rules that govern its main activities.

As an eco-responsible company, we take numerous initiatives to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment.

For example:

  • We have sorting bins on our premises for household kitchen waste, for WEEE*, for glass, paper, cardboard and plastic.
  • We are digitising our processes with the aim of going paperless within 5 years with the Zeendoc platform.
  • We practice a systematic approach to reusing materials.
  • We are integrating citizen actions into our internal events, such as the collection of waste on the beach of the Giens peninsula with the Explore and Preserve collective.
    *Waste electrical and electronic equipment.

2.2 LIMITING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

WOOD, AN ESSENTIAL RAW MATERIAL THAT WE MUST ALL PRESERVE

For several years now, we have been working hard on the supply of wood, the main material used in our products.

  • We have chosen to obtain FSCTM certification for our publishing activity.
  • We also promote the reuse of wood by offering variants with wood from the Circular Economy.
  • For our distribution products, we favour suppliers who are FSCTM certified or whose products are FSCTM certifiable. We also favour suppliers who favour the re-use of wood from the Circular Economy, whether for new furniture, second-hand furniture or of course second-hand furniture.
  • In line with our activity, we also chose to participate financially in two reforestation projects in France in partnership with Reforest Action, one in Seine Maritime at Saint-Aubin-Routot and the other in Aube, at Chamesnil.
