naturesse® is the brand for sustainable disposables and packaging that is developed by the Swiss company Pacovis AG. This company is one of the largest importers of biobased and compostable disposables and packaging in Europe.
The best of
Besides being 100% natural, 100% plastic-free, 100% biodegradable, the naturesse products are now also 100% climate neutral. This is achieved by using only natural and rapidly renewable raw materials and compensating all relevant greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2.

And as naturesse Belgium, we know best the wishes and needs of the Belgian market. This way we can advise you optimally and you can pack your products in 100% climate neutral packaging!
CO2 compensation and reduction of emissions
Producing climate-neutral products is a very ambitious goal. To achieve this, CO2 emissions are first carefully calculated and then fully compensated. In order to offset all emissions generated by naturesse® products projects - from the cultivation of the raw materials to production and delivery, naturesse supports recognised climate protection.
Besides the fact that CO2 compensation is very important for the preservation of the environment, these projects also contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, everyone can check at any time how much CO2 emissions naturesse has compensated via the official ClimatePartner certificate. You can download the certificate via the ClimatePartner page and read more about the supported projects.
And also you can contribute! Buying naturesse® products, you indirectly support the projects below and the climate.
Rice and water - Madhya Pradesh
It is estimated that rice irrigation uses about 24 to 30% of the world's fresh water resources. After all, half of the world's population considers rice a staple food and demand is expected to continue to grow. India has more rice-growing areas than any other country, but at the same time suffers from a serious water crisis.
The project in Madhya Pradesh, India, helps around 70,000 farmers to switch their cultivation techniques. Instead of continuously flooding the rice fields, farmers are now able to flood the rice fields in a controlled and intermittent manner through an innovative and sustainable method. During the rice-growing season, this results in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50% compared to conventional practices.
The projects promote the development and application of new agricultural practices such as reducing the use of fertilisers, improving water management and irrigation, crop planting and harvesting. They also improve agricultural productivity, resulting in a higher standard of living for local farmers. More information about this project can be found here.
Afforestation - Bagepalli region
Forests are not only among the planet's most important carbon reservoirs, they also harbour a huge variety of animal species and are an essential living base for all humans. However, in recent decades, global forest areas have declined significantly as a result of increasing settlement, intensive agricultural use and raw material extraction.
Land productivity in the Bagepalli region of India is very low due to scarce water resources and poor soil conditions for agriculture. The land belongs to the poorest farmers and agricultural workers in the region, who have to make a living from cultivating this land.
The project supports a total of 1,296 farming families from 155 villages in cultivating and reforesting the land. They plant mango, cashew, silver oak, tamarind, jamun and other seedlings. Afforesting new or reforesting degraded areas with fast-growing species significantly increases the capacity to store CO2. More information about this project can be found here.
