Sustainability and Responsibility
We take our corporate responsibility very seriously and want to make ourselves strong for people and the environment – Corporate Social Responsibility is therefore a central component of our strategy. Here’s proof of our commitment:
Safety in the workplace
The safety of our employees takes the highest priority: Through extensive preventative measures, we create a safe working environment that minimizes the number of workplace accidents. All of our production locations worldwide are certified for their occupational health and safety management.
It’s important to use natural resources sustainably. For example, we reuse 66 percent of the waste that we generate. Additionally, we have implemented efficient water and energy management at our manufacturing locations: At some locations, we save energy by obtaining the water to cool production machines from our own wells.
Furthermore, our products save more energy than is used during their production: They increase the ecological efficiency of the end products that contain them, and therefore help to save 52.4 million tons of CO2 equivalent throughout their lifetime.
Societal and social engagement
We see it as our task to make a positive contribution to society. Thus we help in times of natural and humanitarian catastrophes, invest in educational initiatives, and support local social projects. At our location in Malacca (Malaysia), the “Charity Run” raised over €3,000 (~ $3,885) – these collected donations benefited the “Melaka Cancer Society,” which helps cancer patients in need.
These are only a few examples of how we do business sustainably and responsibly. Have we piqued your curiosity? Find out more here: Corporate Social Responsibility
