Our contribution to climate protection
"We believe that we always have a responsibility to our environment. Especially when we realize that we can make tangible improvements."
This guiding principle also forms the basis for the manufacture of our products. Here we attach great importance to the most environmentally friendly possible use of the necessary resources and materials. In our halls and office buildings - equipped with photovoltaic systems - we rely on solar radiation as a natural source of energy, which is used effectively when filling our products.
Resource and climate protection - step by step towards greater sustainability
In the area of resource and climate protection, we have been working successfully with the environmental service provider INTERSEROH for several years. As a central company of the ALBA Group, Interseroh has been developing tailor-made environmental and system services across all sectors since 1991 in order to specifically improve the sustainability performance of companies. As partners of this group of companies, we now save large amounts of greenhouse gases and primary resources every year thanks to our joint recycling activities and are proud of our successful savings*.
Numerical this means for 2018:Since 2013, a total of 245,143.04 kilograms of resources and 35,445.1 kilograms of greenhouse gases have been saved.
Packaging material - in the sense of sustainability
We also organise our packaging materials towards sustainability. An important point here is the reduction or efficient use of packaging. We are also always on the lookout for new, sustainable packaging materials.
Sustainability through reuse and recycling
In the fight against climate change, the reuse and recycling of already used raw materials play a decisive role.
We are paying increasing attention to the fact that various films or cartons that have already been used are used once again as packaging material. By avoiding additional packaging material, we keep the ecological footprint small. Should you ever receive an order from us with reused packaging material, you are part of our long-term project for more sustainability.

Film packaging - yes, but made of recycled material
Wherever possible, we use easily recyclable material consisting of a single substance. This so-called monomaterial has the advantage over the usual composite materials that the production costs are significantly lower and the disposal is more environmentally friendly.
Constant change for more sustainability
The topic of sustainability is very important to us and we therefore work daily to find an ecologically responsible solution by means of various and new measures.
