We believe that every gesture, be it large or small, short-lived or long-lasting, represents our commitment to sustainable development and underlines our environmental awareness.
Our finishing solutions are built to respect this commitment, the offices are designed to minimise environmental impact and the staff act in line with the company’s green ethics.
Each year we contribute to reducing our impact on the planet by fully compensating for our CO2 emissions. We do this by planting trees around the world to balance our carbon footprint. Discover more about the PRATI Forest initiative here: treedom.net
