The Schroll group is totally committed to sustainable development

Reconciling economics, social progress and ecology to draw these three issues into a virtuous circle means choosing a form of development that is economically efficient, socially fair and ecologically sustainable. This is the model the Schroll Group has chosen to adopt. Because when it comes to sustainable development, saying what we do and especially doing what we say is essential.
For your information, our ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications were renewed on 5 May 2012 for the Schroll sites in Colmar, Pfastatt and Strasbourg. These certificates were issued by the SQS certification body.

Economic responsibility

Giving priority to economic relations with our geographical neighbours

We assume our economic responsibility by forming strong partnerships with our geographical neighbours: we give preference to local users of our recycled raw materials. We have signed the "Idée Alsace" charter, thereby marking out attachment to: compliance with the values of sustainable development, maintaining regional know-how, supporting quality and social progress.

Listening to the market and our customers

To be competitive, we must stay one step ahead and ensure we maintain our quality of service. This means listening to what the market expects, anticipating how it will develop and finding innovative technological solutions that take account of the environmental, economic and socio-cultural constraints.

Innovating and guaranteeing quality

Whether local authority or private company, craftsman or industrialist, public administration or shopkeeper, the Schroll Group offers every one of its customers solutions adapted to its needs: a comprehensive, customised service that meets all the relevant standards, with a commitment to measurable results.

In 2010, we treated 493,000 tonnes of materials.

Environmental responsibility

As a recycling professional, the Schroll Group feels that it has a duty to work effectively  to protect the environment.Our very job is to take on responsibility for the environmental: recycling reduces the volume of final waste needing to be treated and saves natural resources directly, but also indirectly, by generating significant savings on energy and water consumption in production processes.

It is our duty to take strong initiatives in the field of sustainable development, with for example, (e)CO2, our carbon compensation scheme for waste transport.

We also make every effort to support our customers in their policy on providing information and promoting recycling.

Our installations regularly receive numerous visitors, which is a way of contributing to raising awareness of the need to recycle.

Finally, by striving every day to limit the ecological footprint of activities, we are fully assuming our environmental responsibility: for example, we prioritise the use of energy saving bulbs, we recycle our office waste, we train our teams in energy in fuel efficient driving and we use local suppliers whenever we can.

The Schroll establishments in Strasbourg, Colmar and Pfastatt are ISO 9001 and 14001 certified by a certification body.

Social responsibility

The Schroll Group's actions in favour of sustainable development are based not only on recycling, but also on permanent innovation and the protection of local jobs.

By investing in new state-of-the-art equipment for the Strasbourg, Colmar, Pfastatt sites or the Citraval site in Rombas, without reducing jobs, the Schroll Group improves working conditions for its employees.

The Schroll Group also participates in return to work schemes for the long-term unemployed for example, working with specialised organisations.

The Schroll Group's commitment to the local jobs is therefore total.

…and duty of information

 The implementation of a waste management policy also involves complying with a complex set of laws and maintaining a constant technology watch.

The Schroll Group informs you through visits and meetings on the new eco-organisations, on new laws, the creation of new outlets for recycled waste, developments on the markets, new collection techniques, etc.
