Our environmental commitments
Decreasing CO2 emissions

The introduction of the biomass boiler in 2013 reduced CO2 emissions. PDV invests annually in equipment that is more efficient and uses less energy. Our energy consumption (electricity, steam, gas ...) are monitored and additionally an energy management system was put in place in 2017.

Preserving the aquatic environment

PDV is constantly looking for production methods to extract as little water as possible from the natural environment.

Effluents are treated in a physico-chemical station and then in a biological station in order to make the water as clean as possible in Vologne. Sewage sludge is converted into compost.

Responsible procurement

The wood pulp that we use comes exclusively from certified forests , it’s a guarantee of responsable management of forest resources. Papeteries des Vosges are also certified FSC® FSC-C023778 (Forest Stewardship Council®) and PEFC 10-32-2155 (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). The majority of manufacturing broke is reintegrated into the manufacturing process with the balance being recycled with office paper.

Did you know ?

The wood fibers use to produce paper can be recycled average 5 to 8 times before losing their qualities. To allow the paper industry to produce recycled paper, it is necessary to use virgin fibers (no-recycled). PDV use only virgin fibers to meet the requirements of its costumers and guarantee the quality of its papers. By using and recycling PDV papers, you contibute to the sustainability of the production of recycled papers.

Working conditions at the centre of attention

We are concerned about the well-being and safety of our employees, this is reflected among other things by obtaining the international Highly Protected Risk label. We are investing a significant amount in personal protective equipment and improving working conditions and safety. On the other hand, occupational equality between men and women is a major concern for us. We belong to a sector of activity known as heavy industry. Thus its population is predominantly male. We are no exception to this reality, in 2020, 15% of our employees are women. Our remuneration systems are constructed in such a way that they are non-discriminatory. We guarantee equal pay and qualifications for men and women, with the same skills, level of responsibility, career paths and profiles for the same job.
