Green attitude and eco-design
Figueras knows that respect for the environment is a competitive tool. That's why the company introduced an environmental management system in 2003. Figueras strictly complies with ISO 14001 – a global, officially-recognized, voluntary standard that certifies the company’s good environmental performance.
Figueras also works with the principles of eco-design in mind. Eco-design is a way of improving the quality of products by increasing their durability and functionality and making them easier to repair or recycle. The approach provides a more detailed understanding of each product and its environmental impact.
Eco-design involves taking environmental criteria into account right from the first stage of creating a product, emphasizing the use of recyclable and mono-materials, and using the least polluting industrial processes possible.
