A very successful milestone will be reached by the implementation of our >>> sustainability strategy Our company has been awarded the Silver Medal by EcoVadis for the implementation in the various measures.
As a medium sized, family-owned company in its 6th generation, sustainability is our lived practice. About 2 years ago, we also started to orientate ourselves towards the rating conditions of EcoVadis. Independently of this, we are constantly working on improving our footprint. We will continue to integrate the sustainability issues of environment, labour & human rights, ethics/corporate governance as well as sustainable procurement into our operations.
As a plastics processing company, we know the challenges that come with the production and processing of our raw material. This is precisely why we also work on the use of recycled materials (PCR as well as PIR) for our own items and thus support the necessary circular economy. Of course, our articles convince with a long-life span and could almost 100% recyclable, afterwards. The appreciation of our recyclables is a part of our daily work in our operational teams. In addition, we are also working on return and recycling concepts for our customers, e.g., for logistics/transport containers - where possible.
For many years, we have been generating our own power electricity by photovoltaics. With the completion of the current, extensive investments, we will in addition to the already existing approx. 1,600 kWp add in the future approx. 1,500 kWp, the annual certification according to DIN ISO 50001 proves and verifies our commitment to the resource-saving use of energy and it shows compliance with or exceeding of our annual savings targets.
With our Code of Conduct, we have integrated our employees and business partners about our essential basic principles for economic, social, ethical and sustainable action.
