We are very proud that no waste generated by the production activities in the Otopeni factory ends up in the landfill. 70% of the waste is recycled externally and 30% is used for energy production.
In the factory in Otopeni, we have two wastewater treatment plants—the newest has NTPA 001 standard. We are in the process of updating the standard of the second wastewater treatment plant from NTPA 002 to NTPA 001.
In 2020, the Philip Morris Romania factory received the international Alliance for Water Stewardship standard, version 2.0. This standard is requested voluntarily by the company in order to certify the compliance with the highest standards of sustainable water use.
Our target: carbon-neutral footprint
We have set ourselves an ambitious goal: to become a carbon-neutral factory by 2023. We also support reforestation activities through voluntary actions involving our employees.
