Since 1992, Parfums Christian Dior has been practising selective sorting at the source for all its wastes at its Saint Jean de Braye site. Non-hazardous industrial waste materials (paper, cardboard, plastic, etc.) are sorted by type in identified containers and are removed to recycling plants. Hazardous industrial waste (toxic waste from labs, car and small batteries, etc.) are handed over, pursuant to regulations, to specialists who reprocess or recycle the materials. In 2003 the company designed and distributed a pamphlet to train all employees in selective sorting at its site in Saint Jean de Braye.
