Sustainability and environmental protection

Sustainable action is part of our corporate identity. Sustainability is understood as a triad of ecological, economic and social aspects that are equally taken into account when achieving goals. Our corporate goal is to use resources responsibly to satisfy the needs of our customers and stakeholders and thus preserve our world for future generations.

 

We maintain long-term partnerships! In order to be successful in the market together and to be able to exist as a company in the long term, we rely on long-term, fair and partnership-based relationships with our customers and suppliers.

 

For us, resource conservation and environmental protection are top priorities! In our company, environmental protection is an important part of corporate policy. We are aware that our activities affect the environment. It is therefore our duty to reduce these adverse effects on the environment to the minimum possible within the scope of our economic and technical possibilities and by means of well thought-out processes.

Based on our shared responsibility towards people and the environment, we have set ourselves the goal of reconciling profitable production and environmental care by improving environmental performance and avoiding or reducing environmental pollution, where this is technically and organizationally possible and economically feasible. It is a matter of course for us to comply with the legal and official regulations and other environmental interests as well as the environmental protection requirements we have set ourselves and, where possible, to exceed them. Our environmental management system is based on the requirements of ISO 14001: 2015. We have already implemented numerous measures with the aim of protecting our environment. We have been generating a considerable part of our energy needs from our own photovoltaic systems since 2000 and when purchasing new company vehicles we give priority to alternative drives. When choosing our suppliers, we give preference to regional companies in order to avoid unnecessary transport routes. Our company premises were planted extensively with local trees and bushes. One of the main materials for our products is aluminum. As a packaging material, it guarantees absolute protection against external influences such as light, foreign aromas or oxygen. Our customers’ products are protected and made more durable. Aluminum is completely recyclable without any loss of quality.

 

We take social responsibility! We apply ethical behavior to all of our business activities. The focus here is on honesty, respect, and fairness in dealing with one another, with our customers and employees, and with our business partners. We speak out resolutely against child and forced labor, discrimination and corruption and commit ourselves to respect, protect and promote our employees. We also make these demands on our business partners! Furthermore, we support regional and social projects and thus make our contribution to social development.
