IWC eliminates the use of plastic wherever possible in order to protect the environment. For years, we have sought innovative ways of avoiding plastic waste and finding suitable alternative materials. Plastic containers used for storing parts have been replaced with receptacles made of other materials, and the plastic content of packaging film has been drastically reduced.
To achieve this objective, we need the help and cooperation of our employees. In early 2015, we launched a wide-ranging campaign to raise staff awareness and reduce the use of non-recyclable containers. To get the initiative under way, we gave all our employees a beverage set comprising a glass drinks bottle and a china cup, both of which are 100% recyclable.
