Calmell Group promotes environmental sustainability in its paper purchase management, prioritizing the purchase from suppliers that have the FSC and PEFC certification systems. FSC certification ensures that products originate from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
In turn, PEFC is the most widely implemented forest certification system in the world. The aim of the PEFC is to ensure that the forests of the world are managed in a responsible manner and that their functions are protected for present and future generations. To accomplish this, it draws on the collaboration of owners and companies in the forestry sector, which, betting on the certification of their forests and industries, are ensuring the sustainability of the sector.
For plastic cards, thanks to the result of the development of a new polymer that meets the needs of the market to take advantage of the unique behaviour of PVC (printing, durability,…) and with the aim of providing an ecological alternative, we can offer a biodegradable PVC card: “ECOCARD”. The “ECO” PVC that we use degrades in 3 years, once in contact with the environment, according to the European regulation CE 94/62 (ISO-14855) and maintains all the properties of a conventional PVC card. Both the core of the card and the overlay (protective printing layers) are eco-friendly.
