Polopique uses all the necessary resources to the industrial process in a sustainable manner, which means using the necessary minimum, generating the minimal residue possible, which will be processed in a way that lessens its environmental impact. This purpose is accomplished not only through the recycling of water and paper but also through the growing investment in the usage of renewable energies.
With a process, as ecofriendly as possible, the substances to process as residue in the end of the process and CO2 emissions suffer drastic reductions when compared with a conventional productive process.
