Doing what we can on every front,from recycling to solar power.And helping build a more eco-friendly society.

Takasago's plant in France has always been careful to protect working conditions and safety for employees while also implementing environmental measures. Thanks to the implementation of a quality, security and environmental system we succeeded in certifying our site ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 since 2002 and obtained the Group ISO 14001 certification in 2011.

Environment

Takasago's French plant produces blended perfumes, which involves heavy use of water during the manufacturing process (cleaning of the blending tanks). A key challenge was to find a solution to dispose of wastewater.

The plant has therefore installed equipment that treats the contaminated water by means of vacuum evaporation. This effective treatment also reduces the CO2 emissions by avoiding the transport by truck of our waste water up to the treatment area.

Our contribution to environmental protection lies also in different actions plans we implement throughout the year, such as :

  • subscription to a new renewable energy contract
  • reclaimed or recycling process for most of our waste,
  • replacement of our light system by LED light,
  • reduction of our water consumption
  • orders consolidation
  • offering environmental friendly packaging to our customers to reduce our CO2 emissions

T.E.P.L wished to create a partnerships with companies which have implemented strong social and environmental initiatives.

For example, ELISE is a company dealing with household/office waste collection and recycling. ELISE works actively towards protecting the environment by optimizing the collection and recycling of almost all our waste. This company also contributes to develop local and sustainable jobs.

The current staff is primarily made up of persons with disabilities or difficulty of insertion.
