Sustainability at Heubach
Successful economic activity means sustainable economic activity. In light of increasingly scarce resources, demographic change and global warming, we want to take responsibility for both people and the environment as part of our business activities so that we can develop the best possible solutions for a future worth living in.
EcoVadis Silver Medal 2020
Heubach GmbH was awarded the EcoVadis Silver Medal in December 2020. EcoVadis is a ratings platform that assesses companies’ sustainability performance based on 21 criteria in the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
We support the UN Global Compact
We have been participating in the United Nations Global Compact since 2017. In doing so, we make a commitment to uphold the Compact’s 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment, and corruption prevention.
Our sustainability program defines the most important measures and goals that we have set ourselves within the company. From protecting the environment and our actions throughout the entire supply chain to responsibility for our employees and our commitment to initiatives, associations and cultural events in locations where our company is based, we do everything we can to act in a long-term and sustainable manner.
Increasing sales figures is not everything. Sustainable action is an integral component of our corporate strategy. As part of our sustainability strategy, we anchor our corporate responsibility in management processes and have formulated them into three guidelines: ensuring a high standard of quality; protecting the environment; energy-efficient action, safety and health protection.
Sustainability at Heubach - worldwide
Our comprehensive product portfolio ranges from high-quality organic and inorganic colored pigments to various pigment preparations and customized color shade solutions. Our sustainability efforts affect all Heubach sites.
From research and development to production and disposal, we focus on product responsibility. In addition to integrating sustainability aspects more closely in our product development, this also means actions such as drawing up a do-not-use list for our most important product lines.
Economically sensible actions must always be ecologically sensible as well. We are working to improve the energy efficiency of our production and to significantly reduce pollutant emissions and waste volumes. Through the measures we put in place, we want to assume responsibility for protecting the environment. After all, cross-generational thinking is part of our corporate history.
Employees & Society
Trust, respect, diversity and fair cooperation in the workplace are vital. By adopting a responsible approach to working conditions, we want to ensure a corporate culture that is characterized by dialog. After all, it is primarily our employees who contribute to Heubach's economic success with their expertise and commitment.
