Environmental protection & sustainability Why sustainability is close to our hearts.
Sustainability is a big word - and one that is often used in our time. Too often? No, we don't think so. Because the responsible use of valuable resources is of inestimable value. But we are convinced that it is important to fill big words with real life. With lived values, real actions and a corporate philosophy that focuses on the climate as much as on the health of its employees, and that upholds not only its own social standards, but also those of its suppliers. We understand sustainability as something comprehensive and holistic, as the great parenthesis that encompasses our aspirations for entrepreneurial action in harmony with ecological and social standards as well as responsibility for our workforce and the region from which we come.
And just as passionately as we burn for our products, we are also committed to sustainability. This is one of the reasons why we are a member of the UN Global Compact, the world's largest and most important initiative for sustainable and responsible corporate governance. Based on ten universal principles and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the "UN Global Compact" pursues the vision of a business with integrity and sustainability. We act in accordance with these principles throughout the company and in the areas defined for us: operational environmental protection, production, health management and social responsibility.
