Energy and resource efficiency

We record our energy and resource consumption and emissions as part of the EMAS environmental management system. These key figures form the basis for defining measures and targets. One positive effect of this is the constant questioning and optimization of our production processes.

We also have an extensive range of reusable products and systems and show our customers environmentally friendly alternatives.

An important step is researching and testing bio-based raw materials for our dunnage bags. We work closely with our suppliers and external partners in the field of research and development.

However, did you know that our PP and LDPE dunnage bags are 100% recyclable, unlike dunnage bags made of kraft paper? This is because the latter contain plastic inside (inliner, coating), which means that the materials have to be separated at great expense for recycling. However, our dunnage bags can be disposed of in their entirety via the Yellow Bag and recycled as a raw material for high-quality products.

Society and social affairs

In addition to sustainable supply chain management, we are also committed to social justice both globally and locally.

We have been working with Mainfränkische Werkstätten GmbH since 2008. In this way, we promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the labor market. Because our BIG valves are assembled by the people who work there.

Once a year, we also open our doors to our children and grandchildren as part of the Door Opener Day of the “Sendung mit der Maus” program. We playfully explain the basic principles of load securing and offer a variety of stations on the topics of the environment, sustainability and quality.

We are particularly proud of the social business [B] Energy, which develops mobile biogas technology based on our dunnage bags. We have been supporting the inventor and founder Katrin Pütz since 2011. The innovative system offers people in Africa, Asia and Latin America access to clean cooking energy and income opportunities. Because with every biogas plant installed and every biogas rucksack produced, we make an active contribution to improving living conditions and protecting the climate. You can find more information about [B] Energy here.
