3A Composites AirexBaltekBanova’s carbon footprint reduction and sustainability programmes in its Ecuador operation have been awarded the United Nations Global Compact Award for Sustainable Development. 

The United Nations Global Compact initiative has recognised 3A Composites’ long-term efforts to offset its carbon footprint; protect, restore and promote the sustainable use of land ecosystems; manage its balsa forests sustainably; reverse land degradation and desertification; and curb the loss of biodiversity.

The Awards ceremony was held in Quito, Ecuador, on 21 November, organised by Global Compact Colombia and Global Compact Ecuador.

“This recognition supports our global strategy to become a carbon neutral company by 2020,” says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites’ Core Materials division, the producer and manufacturer of the AirexBaltekBanova core materials products. “What we are doing in Ecuador is a successful extension on what we seek to do everywhere: developing and supplying ultra-performing composite solutions from sustainable resources to help industries become greener, while conducting our business in a sustainable way.”

The United Nations Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to voluntarily align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues.
