In 1994, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 16 September the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, commemorating the date of the signing, in 1987, of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (resolution 49/114).

States were invited to devote the Day to promote activities in accordance with the objectives of the Protocol and its amendments. The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the rays of the sun, thus helping preserve life on the planet.

In Furniture Ros we use biodegradable paint. Two-component polyurethane varnishes to water produced and sold by ICA Spa. These varnishes are the result of technological innovation project by LIFE, funded by the European Commission for its important efforts in environmental protection. 


Another important project that we have done is the EcoInnovation CONVERTIBLE COT-BED Project. Pioneering project in Spain, where Ros1 and another four companies (not from the furniture industry), carried out a study with the CENFIM, Centre of Technological Diffusion of Fusta i Moble de Catalunya, the USC University of Santiago de Compostela and the ICTA, L'Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals. A laborious project, focusing on the environmental study on the life cycle of a convertible crib bed, in the case of Ros1. The study covers the life cycle of production of the convertible crib bed, including energy consumption and production of various elements used in its manufacture. About transport, it is considered as a set, that includes the transport of raw materials to the factory, the final transportation to the shop, to the point of use or home, and the transport to the rubish disposal. The project aims to incorporate the best available techniques and clean technologies to the production process of the the Second Transformation companies of the timber industry, minimizing the CO2 emissions to reduce their environmental impact and get greater efficiency consumption of raw materials and reducing waste generated in timber companies.
