SustainabilityEconomic success with an eye on tomorrow
At the same time, we are guided by the three columns of sustainability: social awareness, ecology and economy.
We were one of the first in the sector delivering a CO2-neutral packaging machine by compensating for emissions by reforestation in our own forest in in Rheinshagen near Berlin/Germany.
But we associate more than climate protection with sustainability. For this reason, the Brundtland Report, the definitions of the German Council for Sustainable Development and the twelve sustainability principles of the mechanical engineering industry guide us as well.
In addition, the careful use of resources as well as fairness, respect and responsibility play an important role in our business.
We advise our customers on the use of packaging material in a resource-conserving manner and assist in compliance with the statutory regulations regarding the recyclability of packaging material. As a solution provider, it is our aspiration to be capable of using your chosen packaging material on our machines.
But we also see sustainability as an opportunity to question ourselves. We are constantly trying to minimize the energy consumption of our solutions. In addition, we will generate part of the electricity consumption in production by using photovoltaic systems.
An example of our commitment outside our sector is our collaboration with Plan International Deutschland e. V.. Within this framework, we have assumed responsibility for sponsoring children in Laos and Vietnam.
The Blue Competence
Hastamat has been a partner of the Blue Competence sustainability initiative for many years. This initiative was originated by the Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e. V. (VDMA) in order to promote sustainable activity and trading in the mechanical engineering industry.
