We do: Rethink materials

We focus on recycled and bio-based materials

tesa has set itself the goal of significantly increasing product sustainability and is working on this every day. Over the next few years, for example, we will be developing many new products that make a sustainable contribution to our top product ranges in the automotive, electrical, and construction industries, as well as for our consumers in the office and home. In doing so, we are focusing on the reduction of non-recycled fossil plastics and will increasingly use recycled and bio-based materials.
