Reducing our environmental impact
Throughout the life-cycle of our products, from sourcing raw materials and marketing them to manufacturing and using them, we make sure that our actions are founded on respect for our suppliers and the reduction of our environmental impact.
Eco-design at Pierre Fabre means thinking both globally and specifically about each brand. Eco-design must be a solution to both reduce the impacts of our business on the environment and to create value, while guaranteeing product safety and efficacy and the respect of certain requirements linked to our pharmaceutical culture, including suitable usage and coherent information and delivery in terms of the product's safety for consumers.
Formed in the early 1990s, green chemistry aims to design chemical products and procedures that make it possible to eliminate or reduce the use and synthesis of substances that are potentially harmful to humans and the environment. It involves 12 principles that we take great care to follow when developing and applying our processes.
Pierre Fabre pays particular attention to reducing the environmental impact of its industrial activities. For many years we have been committed to policies that reduce energy consumption (electricity, gas, oil, etc.) and resource consumption (paper, cardboard, plastics, solvents, water, etc.), as well as policies that manage waste and unwanted materials. The company has also embraced an experimental HQE approach for its three most recent industrial investments.
As consumers of energy and resources, we are developing actions designed for our employees to raise their awareness about small things they can do to reduce their environmental footprint during their everyday tasks.
