Wasteless Production

«Екологічна ефективність для корпорації є не лише викликом сучасного стану довкілля, але й можливістю зекономити і вивільнити додаткові ресурси. В умовах здорожчання сировини для компанії це - вигідно, а для людей і довкілля - безпечно. Щороку ми працюємо над вдосконаленням політики раціонального і відповідального використання ресурсів».
