Best Practice Achievements
2016: COCO-MAT operates in the industrial zone of Xanthi, in the wider region of Thrace, Greece. The infrastructure of the area allows the company to manufacture its products without any adverse noise pollution. The machinery is certified with the sign C.E. and as far as the level of noise is concerned, its contribution to the general noise is less than the limit imposed by E.U. legislation. The operation of COCO-MATâ€™s factory has the minimum possible harmful impact on the environment. The liquid waste of the factory is only that generated by the people and by ordinary cleaning. Concerning the operation of our stores in the U.S. we have eliminated light consumption according to the new technologies along with energy consumption. Our plan is to invest on increasing the use of daylight.
2016: COCO-MAT places great emphasis on the protection of the environment, a commitment that is evident in the use of ecological materials and in the avoidance of the use of chemical materials. In addition, all the packaging materials that are used by the company are recyclable and are collected by the company upon delivery of its products to the customers, for returning to the factory for recycling. more specifically, plastic package of the mattresses has been replaced with cotton cases. According to this philosophy furniture is delivered in wooden boxes. Our target for the next year is to use reusable packaging for all our products.
