PRESERVE OUR PLANET :
FERTIL ACTS FOR THE CLIMATE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Fertilpot carbon footprint to Zero
Fertil's ambition is to actively contribute to the protection of Nature, while maintaining the growing performance of plants.
We want to show that all vegetation is a fragile resource to preserve.
This study was prepared in accordance with the specifications used to assess the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of goods and services.
FERTIL, certified by PEFC and helps to safeguard our forests.
PEFC certifies the sustainable management of forests and brings together a multifunctional and balanced vision of the forest in 55 countries around the world.
For 20 years, PEFC France try to maintain a balance between the environmental, societal and economic dimensions of the forest through guarantees of sustainable practices and the involvement of 74,500 forest owners and over 3,100 companies in France.
FERTIL takes into account all the factors inherent inputs of the FERTILPOT production process :
The raw materialPEFC wood : renewable and respectful of forests.
ElectricityFERTIL continuously invests in new machines that consume less electricity. Our target is to produce ourselves our 100% green electricity.
Waterfor making pulp, recycled in our own circuit.
Gasgradually eliminated from our energy consumption.
TransportsFERTIL invests in the efficiency of its logistics and the packaging of products and goods. Our carriers are also committed to an environmental approach.
For a standard pot of a given volume, a FERTILPOT pot is heavier than a pot in plastic Polypropylene , but in terms of carbon footprint, it is less emissive. Indeed, a pot with a volume of 769.5 cm3 will have emissions of 26.38 gCO2e for the FERTILPOT and 40.75 gCO2e for the Polypropylene pot. At this given volume, the FERTILPOT issues nearly 1.5 less of CO2e than an alternative in Polypropylene.
Comparison of emissions from different materials
Based on this calculated pot emissions, the carbon footprint of the production of FERTILPOT is reduced by more than 80% compared to that of plastic of fossil origin.
