Sustainability

Riflex Film is committed to sustainability and we take care about the environment. Hence, we comply not only with ISO 9001 (quality management) but also with ISO 14001 (environmental management).

PVC has always been regarded as a resource efficient material due to the long-lasting nature of most of its applications. It contributes to make our lives safer, more comfortable and more enjoyable. In addition, few other materials can match its positive cost-performance ratio.

We have in place programs to improve energy efficiency and reduce consumption of electricity and water in our production. Riflex Film are continuously working with improving the energy efficiency and have managed to reduce the energy consumption by almost 20% during the last years, mainly by changing to new technologies in drive and pump systems but also by replacing fluorescent lights with LED throughout the plant.

PVC products need minimal maintenance, and hence very limited additional consumption of energy, raw materials and chemicals is necessary to ensure their continued functionality. As a result, PVC has the advantage of remaining in use for a long period before it enters the waste chain.

PVC is a climate friendly plastic. It is one of the few plastics that cause the lowest emissions of carbon dioxide during manufacturing. PVC is the plastic that uses the least energy.

We are members of Vinyl Plus, an organisation working for PVC to remain as a sustainable alternative.
