The choice of ethical and responsible development.
Since the year 2000, we have been working alongside the Syndicat des Energies Renouvelables (SER – French renewable energy industry association) and the Agence De l’Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l’Energie (ADEME – French environment and energy management agency), committed to playing our part in protecting the environment. The “Flamme Verte” label borne by our products is a guarantee of high-performance appliances that are economical, use less wood, and cause little pollution.
Our R&D Department is constantly at work, seeking the best possible results for our products, and an unwavering eye on the development of European standards guarantees that our brand is in full compliance with all regulations in force.
A continuous watch on the development of European standards guarantees to the production of our brand a full compliance with current regulations.
Keeping faith with our product environmental policy, our production plant is equipped for waste reprocessing and recycling, with a full water recycling system used during the production cycle. Highly effective systems have also been set up to optimise production and facilitate employees’ working conditions.
Another sign of our strong commitment to the quality of the environment is the investment we have made in renewing our computer network, 95% of which now consists of “green” computers meeting specific criteria with regard to design, energy, and recycling (less harmful components, lower energy consumption, easy disassembly upon retirement, recycling by the manufacturer, etc.).
Furthermore, in order to avoid wasteful printing of large numbers of documents, we favour the use of digital tools (e-messaging, internet, intranet, CDs, etc.) and use recycled paper to print our catalogues.
We design heating appliances that use wood as fuel – a renewable energy source. Its use encourages the upkeep and preservation of the natural resources provided by our forestland, whose natural expansion accounts for some 85 million m3 per year, more than 50% of remains standing. This is a major resource, and the use of wood as a heating fuel is therefore recommended.
