“We started looking for a partner for a new project for the Perpetua brand and we immediately spotted one with which to create an innovative synergy. Those of us who have been dealing with sustainable innovation for over twenty years know how essential it is to create a network that is consistent over time, with shared vision and values.”
This is why in Alisea we choose partner companies based on their care for the environment. We choose to work with who shares our values in order to offer our customers excellence, innovation and sustainability. Partners to be proud of, like Gmund.
Gmund has been producing paper since 1829, always keeping the attention to the environment at the centre of all they do. In the Gmund structures it is possible to find the most recent technological innovations in the sector alongside active machinery since 1837.
– Water. Gmund is the only company that treats its industrial waters with ozone and entirely without the use of chemicals. (Water consumption is continuously reduced through efficient optimization measures.)
– Raw material. Gmund uses only the cellulose pulp from sustainably managed forests and environmentally responsible stakeholders and treats employees responsibly. The Gmund card is FSC®-certified (FSC-C006462).
– Waste. Thanks to a large-scale waste prevention initiative, Gmund managed to reduce the residual waste incidence by 82% over the last 10 years.
– Power. Thanks to internal structures, Gmund self-produces more than 75% of the electricity through water, solar and thermal power coupling, without generating CO2.
