Sustainability management in practice
Sustainable product portfolio and supply chain
As a chemical distributor, we recognize our special role in achieving a sustainable product portfolio and supply chain. We apply certified quality and compliance standards for ourselves and our partners, provide coherent documentation, ensure workplace safety and care for the environment along the supply chain. We focus our product development on innovative solutions and sources for green chemicals. In our pursuit of a circular economy, we strive to reduce waste and energy consumption and introduce recyclable products. We also promote local sourcing to avoid long delivery routes and minimize water pollution, but also explore alternative transportation options such as trains and e-trucks for our goods.
While we take steps to reduce our emissions and conserve energy to achieve carbon neutrality, we also recognize the carbon footprint we leave today.
We provide a modern work environment that promotes development and ensures equality, while maintaining business practices that show zero tolerance for unethical, corrupt or immoral behavior. We always act in compliance with laws and regulations and continuously improve health protection for the safety of our employees. We participate in programs such as
- Responsible Care®
- UN Global Compact
