At 3A Composites, we are continuously looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact – so you can focus on your business priorities without having to compromise on sustainability. The ever-increasing demand for resources means it is crucial that we find ways to reduce waste and reuse what is already available. That is why sustainability is one of the key priorities in our new corporate strategy.

As a team, we design and market products and system solutions which make the world more beautiful, safer and more sustainable.


We develop, produce and market high-quality plastic sheets, lightweight paper boards and aluminium composite materials. By 2035, all our products should be manufactured using carbon-neutral production, providing products which are 100% recyclable and offering solutions which leave a minimal ecological footprint.

Mission statement

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself: My name is Haro Coolen. I have been working for 3A Composites for 10 years now and I am the new person responsible for streamlining and driving forward sustainability activities at 3A Composites in Europe.

In cooperation with our management, we have defined four fields of action to bring our our mission to life.

Fields of action

Reducing the carbon footprint

Achieving carbon neutrality is an incredibly ambitious goal. This means that we are continuously working to reduce emissions in all areas of our business activities as well as along our value chain.

Developing sustainable and innovative products

At 3A Composites, our special focus has always been on “research & development”. Our engineers are passionate about making existing products better or creating new products that offer our customers greater benefits in terms of quality, functionality, processing, environmental impact and life cycle.

Driving forward the circular economy

In terms of sustainability, one of the most important aspects is contributing to environmental protection by saving valuable raw materials and avoiding waste. In addition to pre-consumer recycling, which is practised at our sites, we are committed to establishing and achieving a closed loop system for our products after the end-of their service-life .

Fostering profitable business with customers and employees

Our focus is firmly on you as a customer and your needs. In the course of working towards the best possible products and first- rate solutions for applications, we are able to innovate and break new ground together. Our employees' great dedication and passion for their work form the basis of this success.

From now on, I would like to share with you our #sustainabilitystories from one of these four areas of activity at regular intervals.

You are welcome to share your suggestions and feedback with me by e-mail to

Transparent acrylic sheets made from 100% recycled material

Détails de l'actualité 3A Composites GmbH

CRYLUX®re and PERSPEX®re are acrylic sheet materials which are made using 100% recycled methyl methacrylate (rMMA), obtained from PMMA scraps and waste. The rMMA is gained from depolymerisation of acrylic sheets and liquid waste coming from our own production.

The recycled material can be reused (over and over again), which not only saves raw materials but also avoids waste. Depolymerisation takes place in Europe, in close range of our production facilities, which further minimises the CO2 footprint due to the short transport routes.
