One of the main goal of RAPIDO Group is to respect the environment all along the camping-car manufacturing process. Now, ecology became a widespread topic and nobody has to ignore its impact on the ecosystem. RAPIDO is in line with this approach, trying to preserve natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The human know-how occupies a central place in the Group’s vision. The technical expertise is a key point to obtain high quality product. We favour an artisanal manual work instead of a massive industrialisation, which uses lot of energy.
The environmentally responsible vision is rooted for many years in the Group’s philosophy. In 2008, during the construction of our new factory in Mayenne, various initiatives have been taken. As example:
But the implication of the Group doesn’t stop here. Indeed, a waste treatment politic was created. Here are some examples:
This same requirement is also for our suppliers. We are trying to select suppliers involved in a eco-responsible policy. For example, as part of our wood supplies. 94% of our European plywood procurement have the PEFC certificate to preserve the forest.
The RAPIDO Group prefers as much as possible local partnership with its suppliers to preserve and promote French economy. That the reason why the Group contribute to preserve the local economy while reducing the environmental impact by long-distance transport.
Camping-car benefit from the latest technological headways. Those are cleaner and use less energy:
Indeed, this one combines the mobility of a car and the comfort of a house, a real “2 in 1” product which permits to be more autonomous and reduce its consumption. Furthermore, all the house energy is not used during the camping-car travel.
To become environmental friendly is still a long way to go. RAPIDO try to move on step by step for being in a perfect harmony with its environment.
