As a long-standing stakeholder in sustainable development, Eurotab is committed to an eco-design approach for hygiene and home care tablets.
Régis Desroches, Chairman of Eurotab, spoke at the 4th Assises de l'Economie Circulaire 2020 (Circular Economy Conference) about our commitment to eco-design.
More than 800 participants attended the Eco-design workshop at the Assises de l’Economie Circulaire (Circular Economy Conference)! Many thanks to all of you!
For Régis Desroches, our Chairman, "eco-design is a tremendous innovation accelerator!"
Eurotab has used a Life Cycle Assessment tool developed by independent experts, EVEA, since 2016.
This has been a highly valuable tool for implementing our eco-design approach for tablets. It allows us to measure the environmental impact of our products from the raw material to the packaging.
With each new eco-designed tablet, we carefully measure four impact criteria that we deem to be priorities. Through changing raw materials and components we can see how to reduce these four impacts thereby enabling us to identify areas for improvement and prioritise our eco-design actions.
Thanks to the LCA tool, the selection made with suppliers and the improvement of powder compression techniques, we have reduced the weight of the All-in-one dishwasher tablets substantially to 12g.
We have also made significant gains in packaging!
Our cardboard boxes are much more compact with a better tablet filling rate. They require 25% less cardboard for a capacity of 75% more boxes per truck.
The aim is to be as compact as possible to reduce our environmental footprint!
