SUSTAINABILITY AND VALUES

RESPECT: an essential value

The respect for the environment and for humanity is part of our project and, according to these principles, we manage the entire production cycle, observing not only the laws but also something we believe in.

ETHICAL VALUES OF THE COMPANY

Managing our production consciously is one of the cornerstones of our company.
We have been adopting some rules from the very beginning, such as:

  • A selection of wood coming from forests managed through the rigid environmental standards of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®).
  • Creation of a regional suppliers’ network that share our vision, in order to reduce CO2 emissions, due to long journeys.
  • Test our equipment with periodic checks in order to reduce harmful emissions and to permit our employees working in safety, in a healthy and safe environment.
  • We favour sustainable finishes, natural treatments, handicraft processing and working times, that ennoble the human work and limit energy wastes.

SUSTAINABILITY: A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

The model of linear economy, i.e., extract, produce, use, and throw away, which was a milestone of our economy, nowadays is no more sustainable.

Altacorte believes in a new way of doing business, which cannot aim only to profit, but which takes interest in the environment as a valuable asset which must be protected, in order to improve the life quality of our planet and of the people and animals, that live there. A blend between social responsibility and doing business to create value, creating networks consciously, trying to change the world, making it a better place to bequeath future generations.

THE IDEA OF WASTE DOES NOT EXIST: THIS DOES NOT MEANS IMPOSSIBILE

The circular economy is founded on the three R principle:
1. Reduce
2. Reuse
3. Recycle

According to this fundamental principle, Altacorte tries to approach the Eco Design, developing an eco-design of its items using 100% recyclable materials such as wood, iron, glass and rock.

Our items are thought to last as long as possible in order to be repairable in the future and then, at the end of their life cycle, taken apart with the aim of giving to each part a new life.

 

In the near future all our products will be equipped with a recyclability index: a label that specifies the quantity of recycled material we used for the realization of our items and also how much material will be recycled at the end of its life.

 

 

The trend must change, let’s try to make the difference together. Are you ready to join the world of Altacorte?
