Metlac Group considers the sustainability of its Business a priority.
Metlac Group has developed many projects with the focus on sustainability. Step by step the design of the Business Model is based on the six clusters that cover all the activities and functions of the Group.
By November 2019 Metlac Group aligned itself to United Nations Policy (UN Policy) concerning Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
Metlac Group is constantly monitoring and controlling the impact and effect of its activities on the environment, energy consumption, waste production, water usage and sewage, rainwater management and groundwater. Metlac Group goes beyond the conventional approach to environmental thinking by considering the direct customer and, most importantly, the final consumer, the business, people and all stakeholders.
The Six Clusters of the Business Model that contribute to Sustainability development:
- Research and Development
- Supply chain
- Metlac Community
Metlac Group is striving to become a model Company in its industrial sector, focusing in particular on the innovative formulation of its products, the development of new formulas based on Carbon Footprint reduction basics and on reducing raw materials usage coming from fossil sources. The business growth is combined with an impact and effect reduction of its activities on the environment and indirectly on the final consumer, while developing Life Cycle Assessment on products to confirm the performance improvement basics of its products and environmental impact.
