Waste recycling

95,8% in 2017

Expressions Parfumées constantly needs to work with nature and this is why our teams are very careful in their use of the raw materials that they handle on a daily basis. These are recycled by numerous good practices, such as partial or total recycling. We currently recycle 88% of our waste!

Energy consumption

Optimizing our production flows and realising energy-efficient manufacturing processes is a priority. For the benefit of all, and in the first place of our clients who thus benefit from adjusted costs in the elaboration of the formulas. The energy used on our production chains fits into the global procedure of manufacturing process optimisation, which is studied to be as functional as possible.

Our technical teams on the site are sensitised to energy management issues and regularly trained in this perspective. The company therefore adapts its activity to the entire scale of the various practices.

Reducing the environmental impact

Expressions Parfumées makes every effort to drastically reduce the impact of its facilities on the natural surroundings. Our ornamental garden in Grasse is much more than a symbol, it is the expression of the company’s entire ecological policy. The idea of living in harmony with nature is a capital value for us and the source of a strong commitment.

Other initiatives are being set up, such as:

  • The implementation of an ecological management of the printing supplies used by our IT service. Everything is recycled to be reused.
  • All our marketing documentation is printed on recycled paper, which is recyclable, made in France, and Reach and Ecolabel certified.
