The priority of the production activity of Lesaffre Polska is a constant improvement of the environmental impact. The plant of Lesaffre Polska in Wołczyn is one of the most modern,  and thus the least energy consuming factories in Central Europe.
 
The company can pride on the Cleaner Production Company Certificate   awarded in 1999, and then confirmed in 2005 by the Association of Polish Movement of Cleaner Production and European Ecological Organization: Professional Development in Environmental Management and Cleaner Production in Industry, after the implementation of the project within the trainings cycle „Environment management in small and medium size companies. Practical aspects of environment management systems implementation”  
 
The Certificate of the Cleaner Production Company proves the pro-ecological policy of the company that within the last 10 years introduced many modernizations that contributed much to the decreasing of the impact of the factory on the environment. It also increased environmental awareness among the employees.
