On a global scale, there are several crises currently in progress, which are a challenge for everyone. At Bostik we are fully aware of these challenges, which is why sustainable development is the central pillar of our strategy. For us, sustainability is not only about preserving the environment, it is also about building a sustainable and balanced economic and industrial model at all levels, particularly in our building methods, in the management of resources and energy, in our manufacturing process and in the organization of our supply chain.
It is our responsibility as an industrial company to act and to implement concrete projects in order to pass on a preserved world to future generations. This is why one of our main commitments is to deliver sustainable solutions motivated by innovation.
SO SMART to show our innovation, new products and services we have developed for our customers.

We are happy to be back in the field during various events and tradeshows to promote our new range and get in touch with our customers.

SUSTAINABILITY to explain our strategy and the concrete projects we are conducting towards a more sustainable future.
We use a framework developed by our parent company Arkema, which is anchored in the UN Development Goals, we systematically evaluate our flooring solutions so that a growing proportion contributes to green building, the circular economy and the health and safety of people. In our magazine we've highlighted some other ways in which we're improving on the subject of sustainability. For example we've created a new range of recycled packaging for our products, made from at least 50% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled).
