Silver medal for commitment to sustainability - Kiefel among top 25%
06 Aug 2021
EcoVadis, the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings, has awarded us and our subsidiaries a silver medal in the overall ranking.
This places Kiefel among the most sustainable 25% of all companies tested by EcoVadis. Cornelia Frank, Head of Sustainability at Kiefel, explains: “We are very pleased about this international award, as it proves that we are already doing a lot right from a social, ecological and economic perspective. Our holistic sustainability management is bearing fruit and this shows that we are taking an active role for a better future."
The excellent evaluation was in due to the good working conditions at Kiefel, safety and health protection, energy saving measures and environmental protection as well as actions to avoid corruption and information security.
At Kiefel, we aim to exploit sustainability potentials even more efficiently with our innovations and, in particular, to support our customers on their way to increasingly sustainable solutions. We aim to offer you the ideal complete solution for your application from a single source. To this end, we continuously optimize materials, technologies and processes in terms of resource efficiency and conservation. The constant expansion of our materials expertise, most recently thermoforming of natural fibers in addition to conventional, bio-based or recycled plastics, is part of this. Furthermore, Kiefel is finalizing a group-wide sustainability strategy together with the other Brückner group companies. “The certification also gives us a good indication of the areas in which we can improve even more. That helps us to get better and better” emphasizes Frank.
