Comatec catalog (english version) with PlanetScore© ratings

Original and sustainable packaging

Curiosity, Design et Commitment.

What is the principle of rating?

Thanks to the five-letter logo (A, B, C, D and E) each product in the COMATEC catalogue is presented on a five-level scale in accordance with the specified criteria:

• The most environmentally friendly product in terms of its environmental impact (classified by letter A+), for example, WoodBox series (due to its origin from French eco-forests and its combustion, which contributes to high energy regeneration)
• The least environmentally friendly product, for example, due to its material, method of cultivation or absence of a recycling sector (classified by letter E), for example, PLA (cultivation method and lack of recycling sector, carbon print) or PS produced in Asia (carbon print and recycling sector is not yet sufficiently developed in Europe). PLANETSCORE© is the first ever tool in the world of packaging to scale the sustainability of our products and our commitment to ensure greater transparency of the materials we choose and our further actions for improvements.
