ENVIRONMENTAL AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

ESG & OUR CERTIFICATES

The protection of our environment and the health of our employees are important components of our success. “Environmental Social Governance“ (ESG) stands for companies’ social responsibility in terms of doing business sustainably. This includes various criteria such as the environment, working conditions and human rights, fair business practices and sustainable procurement.

We want to leave a CO2 footprint as small as possible and generate a large part of the energy we need ourselves with our photovoltaic system and combined heat and power (CHP) plant – highly efficient, emission-free and environmentally friendly. Read more about this in our leaflet.

 

We focus on clean driving and only buy hybrid or electric vehicles as company cars. Of course, these also have to be supplied with electricity, which works via a charging infrastructure installed on the company premises.

We’re also pleased that our initiatives have been awarded various certificates. This is not only an endorsement of our work, but also a guarantee for our customers of the good quality of our products.

FSC® certification (FSC® C005732)

You’ll find many products featuring the FSC® certification in our catalogues and on our website. This means that our materials are sourced according to the principles and standards for responsible forest management of the Forest Stewardship Council® certification (FSC® certification). This way, our customers can be sure that our products are made from the appropriate raw materials.

We also comply with the ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems. This standard ensures that our products and services meet customer expectations as well as legal and regulatory requirements.

TÜV certificate for ISO 45001

We want our employees to be able to work safely and healthily in all areas.
