Our values

A deep respect for our territory

La Rochère is a company that is committed. Surrounded by the flamboyant forests of Haute Saône, sources of inspiration,
we wish, through our products, to transmit lasting stories and values, through lasting action.
For more than 500 years anchored in this privileged environment that it respects, from which it has drawn its resources for centuries,
glassworks participate today in the life of the region, thanks to the men and women who work glass with passion,
sometimes for several generations.

Our values

Living heritage company

La Rochère has been labeled EPV since 2014. “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (EPV) is a state recognition mark which distinguishes French companies for their industrial and artisanal know-how of excellence. Since its creation in 2005, the association of EPV-labeled companies has brought together companies with a unique heritage, which work to reconcile innovation and tradition, know-how and creation, work and passion, heritage and future, local and international.

Our values

Guaranteed French origin

In Passavant-la-Rochère, more than 90% of production is 100% French. More than 90% of the raw materials used are also sourced in France. The sand, which constitutes 60% of the composition, comes from Fontainebleau. It therefore seemed right and necessary to us to defend our know-how and our products (recognized throughout the world) with the one and only label officially attesting to the French origin of our products.

Our values

Limited environmental impact

La Rochère researches and implements all possible improvements to limit its environmental impact. For example, we recover the calories from our oven to heat our premises. We are committed to manufacturing 100% recyclable items in France (excluding ceramics, architectural glass panels and bamboo). Thanks to the electrical energy of our ovens, we have significantly decarbonized glass melting. 100% of our glass waste is recycled. Other waste is sorted and handed over to recycling channels for more than 70%. Our teams are involved in a daily approach to improving our energy performance.

Our values

Regulatory and solid societal actions

In order to deepen its commitment, La Rochère joined the Progrès Environnement Entreprises (P2E) association in 2006. This local association of businesses allows each member to benefit from advice and strategy regarding the industrial environment, thanks to the intervention of an environmental engineer.
