As part of its energy and environment policy, ACOME is committed to:
Complying with legislation, environmental regulations and any other requirements applicable to its activities, from a life cycle perspective;
ACOME's industrial site environmental management system is certified ISO 14001 version 2015.
ACOME has been involved in eco-design since 2006. This global approach includes product life cycle analysis (LCA), recyclability rates and environmental impact indicators.
All information from the LCA is recorded in a Product Environmental Profile (PEP), registered with the PEP Ecopassport® association, of which ACOME is one of the founding members.
To help reduce the environmental footprint of its industrial activity in Normandy, ACOME has also developed a local carbon offset mechanism. The association Normandie Forever, in which ACOME counts among the founding members, offers a solution for CO2 sequestration by reforesting plots unsuitable for agriculture.
Since 2014, three reforestation projects have been carried out. In 2019, new plantations will cover 2 hectares in the Bourberouge forest a few kilometres from Mortain.
