3A Composites AirexBaltekBanova says that the carbon footprint reduction and sustainability programs in its Ecuador operation have been awarded the United Nations Global Compact Award for Sustainable Development. The Awards are part of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) chapter. 3A Composites’ activities reportedly helped achieve the sustainable consumption and production, climate action, and life on land goals.

The United Nations Global Compact initiative has recognized 3A Composites long-term efforts to offset its carbon footprint, protect, restore and promote the sustainable use of land ecosystems, manage its balsa forests sustainably, reverse land degradation and desertification, and curb the loss of biodiversity.

‘This recognition supports our global strategy to become a carbon neutral company by 2020,’ said Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials division. ‘What we are doing in Ecuador is a successful extension on what we seek to do everywhere: developing and supplying ultra-performing composite solutions from sustainable resources to help industries become greener, while conducting our business in a sustainable way.’
