Our eco-friendly factory

Our eco-factory has obtained ISO 14001  certification. Located within our long-established site in Lagorce, in the Ardèche region, it was designed to have a minimal environmental impact.

The Melvita eco-factory has always been here, at "the heart of nature."

With its wooden façade, the factory blends into the surrounding environment. It includes 1,800 m² of green roofing, 12 light wells, 80 m² of solar panels (to heat water), 10,000 m² of willow trees from Finland (to purify production wastewater), 240 m² of photovoltaic panels (to produce solar electricity), and has the capacity to collect 160 m³ of rainwater.

                                                                                         

                                                                                            See the interview with Elsa, our CSR & Environment Project Manager.

The building has obtained HQE (Haute Qualité Environnementale) certification, achieving the "excellent" rating for its program and design phases.
This certification attests to the building's performance in terms of eco-construction, eco-management and employee comfort and health.

That's something to be proud of!
