To improve its environmental impact, Davines acts on the entire life cycle of its products, preserving and optimising available resources, minimising emissions and reducing waste.

2017 Results

The main objectives set in 2016 and the results obtained in 2017.

0
72.4
%

OF SOLID WASTE IS RECYCLED OR RECOVERED

graph01

Objective exceeded through the continuous reduction of waste generation and optimization of waste separation.

It is important to point out that 18% of waste accounted for as non-recycled or non-recovered, are in fact the subject of a virtuous waste-to-energy action that produces electricity and heat equivalent to the supply of 1 house in Europe for 2.4 years.
Adding these two sums together, therefore comes to 90.4% of solid waste recycled or recovered, achieved even through a waste-to-energy process.

OF THE ELECTRICITY (KWH) USED BY THE FOREIGN BRANCHES IS FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES

4 of the 6 branches of the Group are powered by electricity from renewable sources, while the remaining are experiencing difficulties, linked to the access of this type of supply in their specific markets. The Davines Group is committed to aligning all the branches with its Parma office, which has been 100% powered by renewable energy since 2006.

OF THE TURNOVER IS GENERATED BY PRODUCTS WITH CO2 OFFSET PACKAGING

graph02

The target not achieved in 2016 was largely exceeded after one year, thanks to the offset of the CO2 and CO2 equivalent, in the life cycle of both primary and secondary packaging, activated on all the lines of the three brands, with the exception of a few minor references.

ENRICHMENT OF THE “FACILITATION OF RECYCLING ACTIVITIES” IN OUR PACKAGING RESEARCH CHARTER

To promote the recyclability of packaging, the “Packaging Research Card” has been enriched with specific details aimed at:

    • conceiving packaging which permits the use of the product to the last drop, guaranteeing less product residue which might negatively affect the efficiency of recycling;
    • mainly designing packaging made out of a single material to avoid additional processes which, in increasing the complexity of the packaging, reduces the possibility of recycling it;
    • guaranteeing easy separation of packaging components, so that each part can fall into the correct recycling circuit.

OF PLASTIC PACKAGING
IS BIO-BASED OR RECYCLED

bio_based

Objective exceeded thanks to the change of numerous lines containing virgin plastic packaging to bio-based or recycled plastic. This choice was applied to all company references that, after an analysis, were technically compatible with this solution in terms of maintaining the product’s performance and its aesthetic characteristics.

APPLICATION OF THE SLCA ANALYSIS ON NEW LINE LAUNCHES AND RELAUNCHES

Objective achieved thanks to 75% of products (on turnover) to which the SLCA (Sustainable Life Cycle Assessment) analysis has been applied.
The SLCA analysis will continue to be applied to new launches to increase the positive impact of the products.

OUR “CARBON FOOTPRINT”

For the past 3 years, the Davines Group has published data on its “carbon footprint” reflecting its commitment to monitor itself, both to reduce its negative impact and to increase its positive impact. To that end, the Group acts to:

  • reduce the CO2 and CO2 equivalent emissions where possible, avoiding practices and products which generate them;
  • change its processes, aiming towards cleaner alternatives;
  • compensate for remaining emissions by buying “carbon credits”.

For years the Davines Group has been compensating the emissions deriving from its activities and also plans actions for continuing and increasing this practice in the future. Since 2017, the company has boasted a “carbon neutral” production site, an important step and an expression of the company’s wish to achieve an overall impact equal to zero.

A RESPONSIBLE DESIGN FOR OUR PRODUCTS

The Davines Group has been awarded one of the CONAI 2017 awards for the ”prevention of environmentally sustainable packaging”, thanks to the work carried out on the Naturaltech shampoo packaging.

The Group has replaced the virgin plastic bottle with a 100% recycled plastic bottle, allowing a reduction of the overall impact of the product, resulting in a decrease of, 30% greenhouse gas emissions, 20% energy and 40% water used.
