The principles of sustainable development pervade all our strategic choices and form part of our everyday work. Beyond the economic and environmental factors, it is the “human” factor that lies at the very heart of our priorities. Since 2009, Schmidt Groupe has worked with the SOS Children’s Village Association to support aid projects for children in France. When it comes to the environment, our factories do all they can : we fast-track investments that cut energy consumption; we pursue a “zero landfill” policy with as much waste as possible being processed and recycled; wherever we can, we use responsible, recyclable natural materials; we limit pollutant emissions thanks to our investment in a volatile organic compound (VOC) incinerator.
