Throughout the entire supply chain we have possibilities to contribute to a good working and living environment, starting with the purchasing of raw materials and ending in a responsible consumption of our products. But together with our suppliers and customers we can make a difference in production and logistics too. Also our associates play an important part in this. They are being given the freedom to take initiatives that have a positive effect on people and the environment. In every area, we focus on specific factors in order to achieve the biggest result. By doing so, we sustainabilize our company in an efficient way, of course always maintaining and improving the quality of our products.
