UN Global Compact

The support of sustainable development and social commitment has great importance to us. Therefore we decided to participate in the UN Global Compact since 2016. The UN Global Compact is a voluntary association, which determines principles and obligations with regard to human rights, fair working conditions, environmental protection and prevention of corruption. The ten principles of the UN Global Compact are consequentially supported, promoted and implemented.

Markets & Products

Environment, Energy and Sustainability

Our plants are located in areas of ecological value, and this requires a location-related environmental and energy policy which is consistent with our business interests. We duly assume responsibility for the preservation and protection of the environment. For us, compliance with legal and agreed environmental standards goes without saying. We maintain cooperative contact to the authorities in charge and the members of the general public concerned. We respect the interests of our neighbors. We always endeavor to use fewer resources. This applies for our production processes and for our products. We pay close attention to clarifying aspects relevant to energy and the environment as early as in the development phase, and we take account of these aspects as far as possible. Reducing or avoiding waste has top priority.

We use appropriate means and the best technologies available in order to reduce environmental pollution to a minimum, even beyond the scope of applicable regulations. We are progressively reducing our energy consumption. We have also integrated our suppliers in this process.

Executives act as role models and encourage their employees to protect the environment and resources when performing their activities. Our business divisions take account of responsibility for the environment.

Environment

Management System

The Executive Board informs itself by means of internal and external audits about the functioning of the integrated management system, provides relevant means for the purpose of realization and makes sure that a continuous process of improvement is in place. We thus ensure that our corporate policy is effectively implemented.   

Integrated management system

Staff and further education

We focus on people: we are a responsible employer, and in turn expect our staff to assume responsibility. This gives our employees the opportunity to influence the development of their personal career themselves. We support our staff in a corporate culture based on cooperation and esteem. Staff qualification and regular advanced professional training are target-oriented measures.

We allocate appropriately qualified staff to all the activities which have an influence on products, the environment, the consumption of energy, safety at work and quality. We support advanced professional training for the relevant activities with internal and external training courses and on-the-job training.
