As a responsible building industry company, we have been committed to sustainable development for more than 16 years.

This approach concerns our partition systems design and manufacturing processes, and also the enhancement of our employees’ environmental awareness.


Since 2010, ABCD International has undertaken the necessary steps to provide "Environmental and Health Declaration Datasheets" (FDES: Fiches de Déclarations Environnementales et Sanitaires). Within the framework of the High Environmental Quality (HQE) approach adopted by project owners and of a "green purchasing" policy, these declarations make a real contribution to HQE management goals in construction projects.

The FDES sheets enable manufacturers to communicate on the environmental and health aspects of their products by detailing their environmental impacts. Our FDES sheets for solid and glazed interior partitions, which show our compliance with the French NF P 01-010 standard, are available to customers on request.

Energy, raw materials, water, emissions and waste aspects are analysed in terms of resource and energy consumption, emissions to the air, water and soil, waste generation, and of course recycling at the end of the product life. The origin, routing, CO2 emissions, environmental impacts, waste generation, implementation, product life, recycling and performance of these products are all assessed.

In addition to these FDES sheets, our R&D Department has produced a complete technical brief including key information on raw materials and the stages in the product’s life cycle, from extraction of raw materials to end-of-life processing, including manufacture, usage and transport.

High Environmental Quality (HQE) is a voluntary approach that aims to make new and existing buildings more eco-friendly: the idea is to provide healthy, comfortable structures whose environmental impacts, assessed over the entire life cycle, are as limited as possible.

This multi-criteria optimisation approach is built upon a fundamental axiom: a building must above all respond to a specific usage and ensure an adequate living environment for its users.

The HQE approach includes three inseparable components.


Construction products, wall and floor coverings, paints and varnishes are potential emitters of volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Through the implementation of the Grenelle Environment Forum, France has made it mandatory to label construction products, wall and floor coverings, and paints and varnishes to inform users about their volatile pollutant emissions.

Emission characteristics are formalized on a four-class scale from A+ (very low emissions) to C (high emissions).

To reduce the emission of indoor air pollutants at their source, we select only materials classed as "low VOCs" (A+ or A rating) for our demountable partition systems.


France’s anti-waste and circular economy model law dated February 2020 obliges building companies to include waste management information in their price quotes. Failure to comply incurs fines.

The French Building Federation (FFB - Fédération Française du Bâtiment) has written a document to help formulate this information in price proposals, along with a guide entitled "Improving waste management on construction sites".

The Ministry of Ecological Transition has unveiled a new timetable for the implementation of an "Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Channel for Construction Products or Materials in the Building Sector". The roll-out date was 1st January 2023.

Manufacturers who install demountable aluminium partitions are impacted by the EPR legislation, since it obliges them to control the end-of-life cycle of their products. The long-term goal is to attain 100% waste recycling.
