Today, production processes use materials as ingredients, for packaging and to facilitate processes. The wide range of materials increases the complexity and effort of recycling. Parallel to this, the growing consumer market has led to an increased volume of waste. At the same time, more and more consumers demand products that generate less waste. We believe that all substances should be disposed of in the most environmentally responsible manner possible. We strive to keep material usage and process waste to a minimum whilst maintaining stability and quality. Minimizing waste is only the first step, but where waste cannot be eliminated, the aim is to reuse and recycle it. This will enable us to work in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. To achieve this we are pursuing our policy of 'avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle' and working closely with our supply chain partners to identify and eliminate waste wherever possible.
