Contributing to the development of environmentally-friendly products
For over 45 years, SPHERE group has been developing innovative products and technical advances that meet the needs of its customers. SPHERE designs, produces and distributes product ranges to transport, protect, cook and sort across all its European consumer and professional markets.
Its eco-designed products are recycled, bio-sourced or compostable, depending on their use and end of life. Whether it is plastic bags from the circular economy, food products made of paper, film or aluminium, SPHERE group complies with all European standards and carries out regular tests on its products. It also ensures that its suppliers comply with these same regulations. Moreover, all products leaving the group’s factories have perfect traceability.

STANDARDS AND QUALITY
SPHERE is committed to a proactive certification and standardisation process that applies both to production sites and products sold
- In 1994, SPHERE was involved in creating the NF Environment label for the bin bag category with AFNOR, LNE and the Ministry of the Environment.
- Products made of bio-compostable plant materials comply with the composting standards EN 13432 and/or NF T51-800.
- Products certified as Guaranteed French Origin for the French market. The Guaranteed French Origin certification was created in June 2010 after the publication of the Yves Jégo report on Marque France. The easy-to-understand, simple certification is the result of a collective effort by actors who wish to work together to promote “made in France” products and local industrial and artisanal expertise.
