Sustainable development/4Rs

Valoris strongly encourages respect for the four Rs of sustainable development, but when this is not possible we offer an environmental solution to avoid landfill.

Sustainable development implies an economically efficient, socially equitable, and environmentally sustainable development.


Explanation of the 4Rs

1st R: Reduction at source
Avoid wasting raw materials and delaying the appearance of a product in the consumption cycle to produce less waste.

2nd R: Reuse
Reuse an object without major modification to its purpose in order to extend its useful life.

3rd R: Recycling
Recycle certain objects that have been thrown out as garbage. Fibre, plastic, metal, and glass are sorted and processed to be re-introduced into the production cycle of current consumption.

4th R: Recovery
This is a generic term describing the overall processes of reuse, recycling, and reclamation of waste.
