Invisible Power, Visible Green!
Industrie Chimiche Forestali (ICF) is an international source for the production and marketing of high-tech adhesives and fabrics for the leather goods, footwear, automotive, and packaging sectors. The research carried out by the company to propose innovative and high-quality products is accompanied by an ethical commitment to social and environmental protection issues. This is proven by the numerous certifications it has obtained in its over one hundred years of history.
One example is the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study carried out on ICF fabrics. It analyses the environmental impact at a resource consumption and emissions level taking the entire production chain into consideration. The GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certification is a new project that promotes responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector through recycling and the dynamics of the circular economy.
The new Forebio fabric line boasts excellent materials that have obtained FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification, proof of the correct management of forests and the traceability of the ensuing products. The same line, in one of its specific versions, has obtained “4 out of 4 stars” of the “Ok-Biobased” certification for the high percentage of raw materials coming from renewable sources.
With the approval of its 2019 financial statements, ICF also presented the first Sustainability Report on a voluntary basis to ratify the commitment of the entire company in pursuing objectives that respect the environment, people, and company profitability.
Industrie Chimiche Forestali has no intention of stopping: it looks to the future with the ambition of constantly evolving, but without diverting attention from what is happening at the present time.
