Because it is located in the heart of a preserved countryside, G'IMPRIM is striving to be a company that is both civic and aware of its activity impact on the environment. In this spirit the new building has been designed following the HEQ (High Environmental Quality) standard. It has a wooden/concreted structure and an efficient insulation reducing its power use and noise output.
The groundwaters are protected by a 650m3 containment basin under the building. Local firemen have been trained specifically on our site to better tackle any potential danger. The fire protection devices inside of the building are considered as a model by our insurance company.
Every year G’IMPRIM is assessing its carbon footprint and life cycle analysis. In this regard we have launched some innovative actions like power and solvent recovery. Many trials have been launched with our customers to reduce the film thickness by a 10% average in the last few years thanks to our coextrusion expertise (since 1985). With these actions we are supplying our customers with a more environmental friendly film.
Those actions and green spirit have been awarded by the ISO 14001 certification in January 2014
