As a group of manufacturers, we impact the environment by utilizing natural resources and energy during production and by generating waste and emissions in the process. In considering areas for greatest positive impact and in line with related UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are actively engaged in the initiatives above. The boundaries of these material topics include direct impact on the raw materials and the power our manufacturing plants use, as well as indirect impact on our raw material and packaging customers, government ministries and municipalities, end consumers, and local communities.
Our management approach performance is monitored through such external standards as ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and EU Ecolabel, as well as Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) and EcoVadis CSR Scorecard audits.
