Practical actions for a better future

Safety, equality, products, energy saving

The growth and evolution process of our company takes place through investment planning, the use of human and financial resources available and the orientation towards technological development; all in a process in which all the elements of the system are on the same wavelength, meeting current needs without a negative impact on humans and environment and not precluding future generations from meeting their own needs.

Franplast TPE’s commitment to sustainability focuses on different basic issues such as gender equality, safety, products, water and energy saving.

UNI EN ISO 14064-1:2019 certification

In 2023 Franplast obtained the UNI EN ISO 14064-1:2019 verification declaration for the calculation of the carbon footprint.

Franplast has calculated the lifecycle emissions of its products. The result obtained is reliable and certified by a third party according to the ISO 14064-1 standard.

The next goals are to progressively decrease pollutant emissions by optimising business processes and to reduce the organisation’s CO2 equivalent emissions.

Gender Equality Policy
