Plastic Omnium is committed to preserving the planet for future generations by reducing the impact of its activities on the environment. In particular, the Group is deploying its dedicated Top Planet program.
In 2006, the Group launched the Top Planet program to reduce consumption, manage waste and limit its impact on the environment. Best practices have been implemented on sites all over the world.
sites are ISO 14 001 certified in 2022
of the industrial park is labeled Top Planet in 2022
waste is recycled or recovered in 2022
In another example, the ambassadors have launched the ” 6 Environmental Basics” in collaboration with the Sustainability department. The aim of this initiative is to encourage everyone to adopt simple reflexes to reduce consumptions and protect resources on a daily basis.
Preservation of water resources
With equipment operating in closed circuits, the plants’ industrial processes ensure a controlled water consumption. Water contaminated by painting activities follows a rigorous decontamination process.
ISO 14 001 certification
Over 90% of Plastic Omnium sites are ISO 14 001 certified. This standard helps sites to improve its environmental performance and better manage its impacts: sustainable use of resources, protection of biodiversity, etc.
Several sites are committed to biodiversity, notably through the Sustainability Ambassadors network.
