The role of our business is to deliver value to all our clientes and stakeholders.
At Apholos we are commited to bring goodness to our environment, our community and our customers.
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 Responsability, and we do not use conflict minerals assuring what is established in the Dood Franck Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Art.
We are keeping the environmental impact as low as possible while maintaining a solid control over the entire supply chain and being aware of production material origin.
We offer more than 50 eco-friendly metal colors with the lowest environment impact.
In 2019 72% of our raw materials ( zinc, brass and copper) used in our production were recycled. The copper and brass used in our products comes from a local copper recycling plant that processes ours, and other industries’ scrap, to re-laminate our raw material. As for zinc alloy, the recycling is done internally within our in-house recycling facility. This guarantees a low carbon footprint material.
Sustainable products are those that provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and the environment over their life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials up to the final disposal.
Through the use of a closed loop water-system and a state of the art filtering technology, the consumption of water in our plating plant has been reduced by 90%. In addition, we partner with suppliers that provide us with chemicals and technologies that are free of contaminants such as cyanide and hexavalent chromium.
