Based in Makati, Philippines, Altum is a true pioneer in using sustainable technology. Since it's inception in 1983, this organization has been an industry expert when it comes to ethical business practices.
What made us fall in love with Altum was their innovative technology and zero-waste design integrity. Each material is made of scraps with sophisticated technology invented by their very own team.
These one-of-a-kind pieces are made of non-timber forest debris, recycled wood, and an exclusive water-based binding agent.
Using recycled paper scraps, these pieces are a testament to their drive for innovation. Its design-friendly quality makes it a great alternative to traditional raw materials.
Derived from crushed limestone, they are able to turn design into a piece of art. It's material is both robust and versatile.
Smooth modern finishes can be achieved with this polymer material, meticulously hand-casted for luxurious finishes.
Their commitment to sustainability is profoundly impactful and mirrors our efforts towards creating a sustainable future.
SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIAL
Agro-forest debris is used as raw material for products with proprietary water-based odorless binder. Absolutely no cutting of trees.
Altum is committed to increasing their energy consumption efficiency by using bio-fuels for semi-mechanized production machines and upholding the Green Procurement Policy.
Majority of the production are made by hand with very minimal use of ground water. Products are dried using natural air + heat from the sun.
SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
A waste monitoring segregation system is in place with a materials recovery program which is also implemented to maximize resource-use.
Rainwater is used for water testing products with a catchment system filling large reservoirs with a combined capacity is 25,000 gallons!
