At Placasa, we view challenges as great opportunities.Two of them are the challenge of social change and a commitment to the planet, which lead us to define and set out future responses and solutions with sustainable alternatives.

We feel a social responsibility to use resources more efficiently and to lengthen products’ lifecycles as much as possible.

All of our departments work to make Placasa a company that is economically and environmentally responsible.This is endorsed by the presence of the circular economy as a cross-cutting core area in our strategic policy to provide a response to the challenge of sustainability.

How do we do it?

Our commitment to sustainability and the environment leads us to collect and recycle all waste throughout the production cycle of our products, giving them a new life by re-incorporating them again as a raw material for new articles.

Post-consumer recycled (PCR)

We manufacture products with high percentages of PCR.We employ raw material from certified suppliers that guarantee the quality and post-consumer sources.
