Environmentally friendly production
Saving resources and achieving comprehensive environmental compatibility are the focus of our production. Even today, Wieland is developing methods to use existing raw materials as fully as possible, and to recycle waste. The success is considerable: production of plastics with 99 per cent granulate usage has already been achieved.
Environmental protection and social responsibility
In addition to achieving economic goals,
responsible conduct with mankind and the environment is an integral component
of our company philosophy. As a worldwide operating company, we commit
ourselves to our environmental, social, and corporate obligations. To send a
clear signal of this obligation to responsible business actions, in 2008 we
voluntarily joined the Global Compact of the United Nations, and support the
principals of this initiative within the framework of our business activities.
In 1997 we introduced an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001 and EMAS, and improving it continuously underscores the high value we place on these endeavors. Within this framework, compliance with all statutory requirements for our products regarding hazardous substances is an important corporate objective.
