Cretacolor Green Mission

CRETACOLOR. A brand with a sense of sustainability.

Sustainability and protecting the environment are number one priorities at  CRETACOLOR. More than 60 % of the energy that is being used in production comes from renewable sources, mainly wind power energy, which over the years led to the reduction of several thousand tons of CO2 emissions at Brevillier Urban & Sachs. Furthermore the company has a focus on using wood from sustainable forestry as well as water-based lacquering to actively push the environmental agenda even further.
