SUSTAINABILITY

Introducing Eco-Friendly technologies and processes is our main concern, as we consider it a vital part of our business model. An example of that can be found in the application of technologies based on the electro-deposition of metals which allows for 80% reduction of water consumption. It is important to emphasize that the raw materials we use for our products are below 90 ppm of total lead content in compliance with international regulations. At APHOLOS we are committed to our CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, and we do  not use conflict minerals assuring what it is established in the Dodd-Franck Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, section 1502.
