Eco responsibility

Alsapan is committed to meeting the needs of the present without compromising those of future generations*.

Eco-responsibility has been part of Alsapan’s lifeblood for some decades now.

  • We use panels made from roundwood: small-diameter logs, branches, rejected logs and also recycled wood and by-products such as woodchips from other industries working with wood, including sawmills, carpentry shops and furniture manufacturers.
  • A lot of our energy we produce ourselves by burning our waste products
