In fact, the Group’s cardboards are more than 90% recyclable and biodegradable according to the technical standards EN13430 and EN13432.
In making its products, the RDM Group uses over 50% secondary raw materials: these are materials derived from the recovery and recycling of end-of-life products or residues from processing raw materials. By recycling, we reduce the amount of material heading for the landfill and limit the use of virgin raw materials taken from nature.
When virgin raw materials must be used, we utilise materials mainly from renewable resources. Overall, more than 80% of the materials that enter our industrial processes and that we use for plant maintenance derive from renewable resources.
On the total material that we use for producing our cardboard, their packaging and plant maintenance: 58% are recycled materials, 87% are materials from renewable resources.
