The current climate challenges requires real change. Our industry is committed to achieving ambitious goals that require a transition to sustainable solutions. Sustainability is not just about our company and our products. We want to be one of the players offering dedicated solutions that have a positive impact for the end consumer, our company, the planet and future generations.
Over time, the company has based its development on the responsible use of the resources it needs:
After being used, the paper/paperboard products are largely recuperated, then sorted by quality.
We use these recycled materials to make our pulp.
We source within a perimeter of 250 km which allows us to contribute to a circular economy approach in our region by promoting short circuits
Pulp and paperboard production requires the use of water at many stages of the industrial process. Water acts as a support for the fibres throughout the manufacturing process and contributes to their proper distribution during sheet formation.
Most of the water used in the paper process is recycled.
The preservation of water and its use are among our main objectives. The various actions implemented have enabled us to reduce our water use by 40% per tonne between 2008 and 2018, 528,000 m3 saved while we increased our production by 30%. It should be noted that we have our own water treatment plant that is able to treat water for a population of 5,000 inhabitants.
Papermaking processes require the use of energy. Two types of energy are used in the manufacture of pulp and board: electricity as the driving force for the machines and gas used to produce heat for drying.
Our action plan enabled us to reduce our gas consumption by 30% between 2008 and 2018, or 36,000 kt/CO2eq of CO2 saved, and a 20% reduction in our electricity consumption over the same period.
At OUDIN, all our decisions are taken in line with our values and our strategy while maintaining a financial balance.
The company is committed to people through the passion of its profession, respect for tradition, the transmission of values, actions for the territory and the preservation of resources.
