02. Challenges

Main pillars of positive products

Safe for people and the planet

By developing the least harmful products for health and environment, by acting either on the composition, banishing or limiting controverted substances, focusing in particular on the indoor air quality, reducing packaging waste, etc.

Made from responsible and recycled resources

By reducing the extraction of new raw materials and by favoring the use of sustainable, natural, recycled resources at any time possible.

Produced responsibly

By accompanying workers, suppliers and their factories in order to support them, respect their living conditions while limiting their impact on the environment.

Made to last

By helping customers to keep and use their items longer, through a proper care, repair or other alternative solution. It reduces the need to permanently buy more new tools.

Bring sustainable functions and features

By saving energy and water, by reducing waste production when using the proper tools. By educating customers to choose products with less environmental & social footprint.
