Sustainability

Our way to become greener

Smart multi-way systems

With our reusable systems, you save costs and valuable resources. Because by smartly linking your locations at home and abroad via app, you and our environment benefit. If you are interested, please contact: nachhaltigkeit@rothschenk.de .

Green Products

We offer you environmentally friendly alternatives for our standard products grouped under the headline Green Products. Did you already know that you can save pure energy by using battery-operated filling systems instead of air-powered ones?

Quality and innovation

Product ideas, material research, special solutions for their application - in our innovation round we are creative and contribute our experience and expertise. Because we want to be designers and create solutions. In doing so, we never lose sight of your and our quality requirements.

Made in Germany

We deliver genuine "Made in Germany" and are convinced that as a company we bear responsibility for our society and the environment. And it is precisely for this reason that we have an integrated management system at our site in Aub and are certified according to EMAS, EMASplus and DIN EN ISO 9001.

Energy and resources efficiency

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

However, we provide a comprehensive range of multi-way products and -systems and show environmentally friendly alternatives to our custoumers.

An important step is the research and testing of bio-based raw materials for our dunnage pads. Here, we work closely with our suppliers as well as external partners in the field of research and development.

However, did you know that the recyclability of our PP and LDPE dunnage is 100%, unlike kraft paper dunnage? This is because the latter contain plastic inside (inliner, coating), so that a complex separation of the materials is necessary for recycling. But our dunnage can be disposed of in its entirety via the yellow bag and recycled as a raw material for high-quality products.

Society and Social Affairs

Beside a sustainable supply chain management, we advocate for both global and local social justice.

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 working there.

Once a year, we also open our doors as part of the "Türöffner-Tag" (door-opening day) of the "Sendung mit der Maus" (show with the mouse) and face the critical questions of our children and grandchildren. We playfully explain the basic principles of load securement 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 airbags. We have been supporting the inventor and founder Katrin Pütz since 2011. The innovative system provides people in Africa, Asia and Latin America with access to clean cooking energy and income opportunities. Because with every biogas plant installed and every biogas backpack produced, we make an active contribution to improving living conditions and protecting the climate. You can find more information about (B)energy here.
