Acting in favor of Sustainable Development is a real desire for the Vicard Group. The various entities of the group are PEFC® certified. Through this program, the company contributes to the sustainable management of forests.

Vicard fully revalues its raw material losses and manufactures its own pellets, making its toasting tool self-sufficient. This reflection on "zero waste" has also led to the creation of alternative products and eco-responsible barrels made with parts of oak hitherto unexploited in cooperage.

The company is also committed to reducing its packaging to address a waste management issue that many companies are seeking to resolve. As a first part of the answer, Vicard reduced its plastic packaging by 66% by using films of 10 microns (instead of 30).

For all local deliveries, the cardboard wraps have been removed and the barrels protection heads are now collected during unloading. New packaging solutions are under study.
