Responsible product formulation
Motul has for long been concerned about the environmental dimension of its activity, both in the formulation phases of its products and in the means made available to its clients in some markets to manage their wastes.
The technical development teams provide genuine responses by developing products which are environmentally friendly in their formulation and use, yet which have equal and sometimes even higher performance.
In this way, materials are favoured that come from renewable vegetal sources such as in the ester-based oils of which Motul is the specialist, or else which come from recycled or recyclable materials for packaging.
Thanks to the development of Eco Fuel formulations, a decrease in fuel can be promoted and emissions reduced with lubricants compatible with the new exhaust gas post-treatment technologies. Also the risks of pollution can be made to disappear with 100% biodegradable lubricants, intended for instance to grease chainsaw chains, or else with biodegradable oils for 2 -stroke marine engines.
Since the mid-1990s in Germany with the 'Grüne Dach' and in France with 'Eco Service', Motul has been offering its clients the possibility of delegating the management of all the waste from their activity.
By taking care, on behalf of its clients, of the administrative and regulatory follow-up of each of the collection and processing activities, Motul allows them to focus on their core interest while resting assured of meeting their legal obligations.
Motul has been endeavouring for many years to get its Quality Management System recognised by international certifications.
Quite logically therefore, a certification process has been launched for the French production site by choosing the FD X 30-205 normative document which is used in the '1.2.3. Environnement' operation.
Under this scheme, ISO 14001 international certification is obtained in 3 progressive steps, which are expected to be completed as of 2012 at the Motul production site. Obtaining this certification is seen by Motul merely as the end result and recognition of daily work, the fruit of the involvement of all, both in their collective efforts and individual commitments.
