With respect

for the environment

In order to fulfill our mission while respecting our values, we are now committed to a process of continuous improvement of the environmental management system and compliance with the regulatory requirements applicable to our sites, which is the key to controlling our greenhouse gases and our carbon footprint in all of our activities and sites.

Control of water

and energy consumption

- Some of the buildings are heated by recovering the energy emitted by the fumes from the boilers.

- The entire process of cooling the conductivity probe of the steam generator has been reviewed, leading to a saving of nearly 20,000 m3 of water.

- The decision to replace the boilers on our sites has reduced energy consumption by almost 20%.

- The insulation of the technical ducts has been reinforced, thus reducing energy consumption.

- All installed light bulbs are gradually being replaced with LED lighting. 

- Gradually, the fleet of service vehicles is being replaced by electric vehicles and charging stations are being installed.

Waste management on the

production site and in the hospital

- All bio-waste from the company canteen on the Lyon site is collected by the local waste disposal company “Les Alchimistes" and transformed into compost in Villeurbanne Office.

- Waste is sorted and recycled by the ESAT “ELISE” which creates local jobs and is inclusive to people with disabilities or experiencing integration difficulties.

- Our industrial waste such as our plastic containers and cardboard are recycled in specialized channels.

- Our plastic corks are passed on to the "Solidarité Bouchons" association.

- In factories, disposable gowns have been replaced by re-usable gowns.

- Our ready-to-use injectable products have demonstrated reduced hospital wastage compared to hand-prepared emergency medications. (1)
