How do you recycle?

Environmental responsibility

Industrias Novafilm is aware of the importance of the environment, that is why we have a recycling program for the reuse of waste, which consists of reprocessing and reusing our own waste as a result of the production and collection of cardboard tubes used by our customers to avoid cutting down trees. Today our cardboard tube collection program avoids the cutting down of 12,000 adult trees annually.

Additionally, we have a tree planting program for oxygen generation.  Actually, our program has more than 120,000 trees planted that generates oxygen for more than 7.2 million inhabitants.

Social responsibility

We are a socially responsible company, paying special attention to people with limited resources to improve their living conditions. That is why we have carried out activities, where our staff was involved and have dedicated their time and work to support projects and improve the adverse social conditions of some people.

We are proud to know that we can contribute to the corporate social responsibility program, student scholarships to children and young people who are the future of our country. We support and promote sport. We are convinced that sport is a factor of change for society, which plants important values of life since childhood, such as: teamwork, reward for effort, fulfillment of dreams, companionship and competitiveness, among others. That is why we have sponsored cycling and supported races for changing lives.
