Preserved environment

Our commitment: limit the environmental footprint

Because giving meaning to its goals is of fundamental importance, SILAB follows a strong guideline, that of the Science Based Targets initiative. The latter aims to maintain the result of greenhouse gas emissions to remain below the 2°C warming threshold.

The company’s environmental policy is applied to the entire life cycle of products and to the operation of its French site. An overall action plan involves the reduction of energy and water consumptions.

100% of wastes are recycled or used to produce energy, which for several years has enabled the company to uphold a zero-final-waste policy.

Beyond these actions on its single site, SILAB has opted for ecological compensations in order to offset its footprint by implementing an in-house carbon fund that in particular finances biodiversity protection initiatives.
