SUSTAINABLE HR POLICY
At Depro Profiles we attach great importance to sustainability.
We want to work towards less accidents at work, we have an internal health policy and we have set up “Sentez-vous bien chez Depro” (feel good at Depro).
That way, we want to invest in the well-being of our employees.
A healthy mind in a healthy body is a philosophy we feel strongly about. Sponsoring sporting events, greater awareness and healthier eating habits, how to prevent back injuries, support to those who want to stop smoking, cycling to work, … these are just a few examples of what we would like to achieve.
Thanks to the installation of solar panels in 2013 we can save up to 350,000 kWh of electricity, per year (the consumption of 100 households). We are making major efforts to tackle our waste stream and we use our waste wood (MDF) to create energy. Moreover, the dust that is generated during the production of our profiles is recovered and can be used to generate “green“ energy. In addition, we have optimized our logistics to avoid unnecessary transport
Depro uses MDF with the PEFC label. The PEFC label is a quality certificate that is committed to improve forest management in the world. This PEFC label underlines our commitment to a healthy, safe and sustainable environment. At the end of life, our products are perfectly recyclable. An important asset in sustainability.
