Lucart and the Environment
A major focus of the group is the sustainable development of its product range, particularly with the introduction of its Eco Natural tissues, manufactured from recycled beverage cartons, and most products sold by the company carry either the EU’s Ecolabel accreditation, or PEFC accreditation, the world’s largest forest certification organisation.
