We save 28 tonnes of petroleum-based plastics annually
The Tabac brand has become a real pioneer here: For Tabac Original and Tabac Original Craftsman, we are successively replacing the usual plastic inner parts to protect the flacon with corrugated cardboard from sustainably managed forests. These are made of renewable fibre materials, saving 4.2 tonnes of PET plastic.
The same goes for our gift sets: The reduction of the plastic inner parts leads to a further saving of 24 tonnes of PET. Here too, we replace them with corrugated cardboard blanks made from renewable raw materials.
The carbon footprint of our supply chain is small
The core range of all our products is produced in Germany. In addition, our major customers are located in Germany: The distance between our finished goods warehouse and the central warehouses of these customers ranges from 50 km to a maximum of 530 km – and 95% of deliveries made by truck to these customers are within this range.
We source cardboard from sustainably managed forests
In order to protect our products and to display as much information as possible to consumers, we pack them in folding boxes made of cardboard which are made of renewable raw materials. These organic raw materials, predominantly wood, come from forests or plantations that are traceably cultivated in accordance with ecological and social principles.
