Sustainable development is a form of economic development compatible with the cpmservation of the environment and free goods for future generations.
Achitex Minerva, aware that production processes and the final use of the chemicals produced have an impact on people and the environment, makes compatible economic growth one of its core values. It is therefore strongly committed to the development of innovative products that provide environmentally compatible and acceptable eco-toxicological characteristics, in compliance with the strictest international standards, during both production and application.
Achitex Minerva also involves its employees, suppliers and customers in its sustainability policy, giving them all a role in the common well-being.
For Achitex Minera “sustainability” means:
- Compliance with the laws on the environment and safety: REACH, CLP, control of atmospheric and wastewater emissions, occupational health and safety;
- Engaging in actions above and beyond those required by law: planting of 10,000 m2 of forest to compensate for the building of the new plant, internal water treatment plant, reduction of water and electricity consumption, reformulation of products;
- Satisfying Customers by means of voluntary certifications: Oeko-tex, GOTS, Zone Vert Excell and membership of private RSL labels.
- Promotion of environment-friendly solutions: cold bleaching, urea-free digital printing products, ready-to-use pastes with low polymerisation temperature, cold pigment dyes....
Achitex Minerva has applied for and obtained UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Certification, underlining its implementation of a management system capable of monitoring the environmental impacts of its operations.
