BIOS LINE’S COMMITMENT

Zero Impact®

Bios Line is involved in the LifeGate’s Zero Impact® project. The CO2 emissions created by the company’s activities are compensated by carbon credits generated by the creation and the protection of growing forests.

Since 2008 we have been part of Zero Impact®, the LifeGate’s project. The LifeGate’s® project calculates, reduces and offsets the CO2 emissions generated by activities, products, services and events by contributing to the creation and protection of forests growing both in Italy and around the world. We have therefore made our business Zero Impact® for the past 8 years, contributing to the protection of an annual average of 74,000 m² of forest in Costa Rica and Madagascar.

Zero Impact® has given us the opportunity of being fully aware of the environmental impact of our business, improving our sustainability path communicating it at its best and, obviously, offsetting our CO2 emissions by supporting projects for the creation and protection of growing forests.

Zero Impact® Web

Bios Line also adheres to the Zero Impact® Web project to contribute to fight global warming. The emissions deriving from the visits to our website will be compensated by the creation and the growing forests in Costa Rica.

As a matter of fact, even if it has already done a lot to reduce CO2 emissions, the Internet pollutes too. According to a Greenpeace report, with today’s growth rate, in 2020 data centers and communication networks will use about 2,000 Kilowatts/hour of electricity, more than three times their current consumption. For this reason Bios Line has decided to make also its website zero impact. Another way to create awareness and reduce the environmental impact of our daily actions.

Frame

Bios Line intends to promote the knowledge and clarity of the information concerning to animal testing. The total ban on testing and marketing cosmetic ingredients and products tested on animals came into force all over the European Union on 11 March 2013 with the new cosmetic regulations No. 1223/2009. After a long process of gradual bans that lasted almost 20 years, the official NO to all tests on animals in the cosmetic sector finally came into being.

Bios Line does not test and has never tested on animals (neither raw materials nor finished products – L. 713/86 and subsequent amendments).

To guarantee quality, effectiveness and products safety to its customers, Bios Line uses methods other than tests on animals, carrying out in vitro or dermatological tests in cooperation with the best Italian universities and supports FRAME – Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (www.frame.org.uk). And since 2012 has been supporting FRAME.

FRAME is an independent charity with the ultimate aim of the replacement of animals in medical and scientific research, education and testing.
Bios Line FRAME

In addition to researching alternatives to animal testing, it is dedicated to the development of new, valid and ethical scientific methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals.

Bios Line recycles packaging and uses cardboard instead of plastic when filling the cartons. It also promotes the recycling of the used packaging by the points of sale and end consumers. Every time you choose a Bios Line product, you contribute tangibly to safeguarding our Planet.

Clean Energy

Bios Line has installed in its headquarters a photovoltaic system with 300 polycrystal solar panels with a 60 kwh power, capable of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 36 tons a year.

Moreover, Bios Line purchases electricity and gas only from renewable sources (GSE-certified – Gestore dei Servizi Energetici).

KM0 Suppliers and collaborators

Bios Line prefers km 0 suppliers, or suppliers as near as possible to the company’s headquarters, with the aim of cutting down on waste and containing CO2 emissions. The same logic is followed also in the choice of collaborators and employees: in fact, next to the high professionalism required to become part of our team, residence near our site is an important plus.

Bios Line promotes the recycling of the used packaging by the points of sale and end consumers. In its headquarters, thanks to the photovoltaic panels it can reduce carbone dioxide emissions by about 36 tons a year.
