Sustainable product development

    When our development team makes decisions about the properties of a new product, its production process and the raw materials to be incorporated, the team considers potential environmental impacts.

    All development projects are managed and documented through our quality assurance system to ensure efficient, targeted and sustainable development that takes into account all relevant issues. The use of sustainable raw materials is prioritized, as evidenced by our deep commitment to the RSPO and EPOA sustainable palm oil initiatives.
