Codif Technologie Naturelle continues to invest in sustainability

Over the next 12 months, Codif will make a complete carbon assessment of the production activities of their active ingredients

In 2019, 42% of our waste were recycled or reused, 75% of marketed ingredients were obtained by cultivation and 100% transformed with green solvents that comply with ECOCERT standards.

After building the foundations of a sustainable marriage between nature and cosmetics, we must now raise the walls and define the brand’s new challenges.

Controlling the carbon footprint

Over the next 12 months, we will make a complete carbon assessment of the production activities of our active ingredients to identify the volume of CO2 that we generate and also of our plant and algae cultures in order to determine the volume of CO2 that is absorbed.

After obtaining this close-up, our 5-year objective is to significantly reduce our carbon footprint by eco-designing our new active ingredients, optimising current processes and also by increasing CO2 capture through ambitious plant cultivation programmes.

Intelligent waste management

We want to quantify precisely the waste produced per kilo of manufactured extract, ingredient by ingredient.

This will allow us to implement, by 2025, a programme dedicated to achieving a significant reduction in the quantity of waste while continuing to find new solutions for its recycling or reuse.

Ecotoxicity and biodegradability of active ingredients

We have invested a sum of around one hundred thousand euros per year over several years to ensure that any new active ingredients placed on the market have passed ecotoxicity and biodegradability tests. We also aim to extend these tests to our whole portfolio of actives within 5 years.

Sustainable sourcing

We have been working for many years with suppliers who have been harvesters, seaweed growers, fishermen and craftsmen for several generations.

In order to strengthen our links with these sectors, we have committed ourselves to meet each of our algae and plant partners, to better understand their profession, their difficulties and to develop sustainable businesses together.
