Sustainability

Novacel, a Chargeurs company, continues to promote high values for a green planet.

Chargeurs signed the Global Compact on June 29, 2017  

The Global Compact initiative and its ten core principles bring together the world's most innovative companies in terms of sustainability, companies committed to exceeding the standards of excellence defined through thematic initiatives that will make a lasting difference.

“Membership of the Global Compact supports our Game Changer strategy in niche industrial markets. Chargeurs now ranks amongst the most innovative companies in the world in sustainable development, raising its standards and the entry barriers to its businesses even higher", said Michaël Fribourg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

COP 21 Métropole Rouen Normandie

On December 14, 2018, as an influential local industrial player, we signed the "Rouen Climate Agreement" with the Rouen Normandy Metropolitan authority. This agreement summarizes the actions implemented to date and the objectives still to be achieved to reduce the environmental footprint of the Déville-lès-Rouen site. Here are some examples:

  • Cutting VOC emissions by half within 5 years.
  • Increasing the proportion of green electricity supply to 27% by 2020, and to 40% by 2030.
  • Replacing the electric motors of end-of-life equipment with high-efficiency units.
  • Implementing RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidation) and using the energy generated to meet site needs – by 2021.

Novacel Committed for a Green Planet

Novacel continues to strongly promote an eco-responsible value chain.

Surface protection’s primary purpose is to reduce waste and surface rejections at every stage in the supply chain: manufacturing, distribution and installation.  Customers all benefit from Novacel products. Protecting the refrigerator, dishwasher or window with just a few microns of Novacel’s recyclable film dramatically reduces the risks of scratches or other damage, delivering a pristine product all the way to the end-user. Novacel’s surface protection is your tool for limiting waste and damage issues.

Novacel products are recyclable, and the message is being delivered loudly and clearly. Novacel continues to initiate new and innovative ways of communicating on the recyclability of Novacel’s films.

Did you know? Green products are available from Novacel. Did you know?  Novacel holds technology patents specifically for creating environmentally friendly products. Just a few examples:  paper, recycled plastic, biosourced, biocompostable films. And coming soon, the same surface protection but with substantially less plastic.  And all earth-friendly.  Novacel’s Research & Development teams are vigorously pushing the boundaries of societally acceptable protective films, working every day to achieve - and achieving - exciting results.

Novacel – delivering the innovation you need to protect your products, your business and the world.
