This site gives no hint about landfill waste as A.D. Compound’s products are recyclable and made with recycled materials.
Every kg of virgin raw material releases 1,5 kg of CO2*emissions. A.D. Compound products are made with industrial waste, drastically cutting down such emissions along with water consumption and waste production.
A.D. Compound uses electric power certified for zero greenhouse gas emissions**, preventing 0,4 kg of CO2 being released for every kWh consumed***.
Purchasing our products is helping the planet.
Our commitment to sustainability for the future of the planet
The 2030 agenda is the UN’s global action program for Sustainable Development. It is considered global not only because 193 ONU members signed it, but also as it commits us all to change our society for a more equal, just and safe future.
We proudly consider ourselves an active part of this project, but we are also aware that we can do more. That is why we studied the 17 Sustainability Goals of the 2030 Agenda program to identify those closer to our business reality and values, highlight the results achieved so far and set new ones.
