Reduced energy consumption and waste production

In VBG Group, we work actively to reduce our environmental impact at all stages of our operations. Products and processes must be designed so that energy and raw materials are used as efficiently as possible, and in a way that minimises the occurrence of waste and waste products during the useful life of our products.

The VBG Group applies the precautionary principle, which means that we avoid materials and methods that could constitute a risk to health or the environment.
