Renewable content in manufactured products
We are developing specific actions to achieve a science-based and verifiable efficient use of natural resources and commit to limit and ultimately avoid the use of resources that are proven detrimental to the principles of Sustainability that contribute to climate change.
Understanding and providing useful insight into our products’ composition is key to all stakeholders, including our suppliers, customers, end-consumers, and ourselves. We are constantly working with our supply partners and innovating to increase the bio or renewable content in our products, this is paramount for our product stewardship and ultimately our fiduciary commitment to our planet. We use the European Standard EN 16785-2, which focuses on the material balance method to determine our products’ renewable content.
