Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsNateva is a company in the natural regional park of Vercors, in a surrounding at the same time confined and privileged. The territorial anchorage of the company is real. The company of about 35 people realizes the transformation of aromatic and medicinal plants and had 10th anniversary on 09.06.2016. The proposed products are mostly biological. Nateva works in partnership with producers and pickers on a local and national level, but they are also active in projects of international dimension. Nateva is very anchored to its territory and work for the preservation of programs of study of parfum and herbs on a local level. Nateva privileges also long-term engagements with commercial partners. They have the following activities:
- Trading with aromatic and medicinal plants, extracts, essential oils and vegetal oils.
- Extraction of medicinal and aromatic plants.
- Distillation of essential oils and floral water.
- Production and conditioning of food supplements.
In 2016 the local people and the organization of the company have made progress as the company has made an acquisition of a local storage in the neighborhood and they have included to the existing building offices, laboratories and a recreation room. The working conditions are improved by this. Nateva is in line with the French labour law and applies the collective convention of the chemical industry and reserves a flexibility in the working hours. For the third year of FFL certification the company reinforces taking care of the preparation and follow-up of the audits. The environmental impact on wild flora was minimized by a continuous replanting. Tracking of energetic consumption was installed and analysed and considered in the production unit related to projects of reductions. The selective selection confirms with new revaluations. The implication of Nateva for the sector Fair for Life in the Congo has not weakened. There are regular contacts and promotion. The volumes have increased again. New products have been certified in 2016 (thyme linalool and thuyanol, lemon eucalyptus). The economic impact is important in a region where it has little or no possibilities to work.
