Our current activities
As a market leader, we are the ones who demand the most from ourselves. We are aware that our activities have an impact on the environment, so we are constantly working to reduce this impact and improve our products and manufacturing methods, and use raw materials in a sustainable manner.
Save Nature mark
For many years now, at Velvet CARE, we have been improving our production process for Velvet products, looking after the environment. We work in many areas and wish to share what we do with you and would like to share with you our recent activities.
Velvet products are marked with the “Save Nature” mark, symbolising our commitment to the environment in five areas:
- protection of forest resources,
- recycling of packaging and raw materials,
- efficient use of water in the production process,
- reducing the amount of plastic used,
- reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The initiatives taken in these areas are an example of what a company can really do to protect the environment. We believe that they can inspire and encourage others to take action. Which is why we present our main accomplishments below.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Since 2013, i.e. from the very beginning of Velvet CARE, until the end of 2019, we have significantly reduced the emission of harmful gases generated by the boiler plants in our factory. We have reduced SO2 emissions by 69%, NO2 emissions by 52% and CO2 emissions by 32%.
In the future, we are planning to modernise internal transport – we will eliminate petrol and diesel engines.
