Transparency & Sustainability

Together with our customers, we design transparent procurement and tender processes. We identify the relevant cost drivers, develop options and evaluate them in terms of opportunities, risks and costs. The choice is yours!


Fair working conditions, electricity from renewable energy sources, paper from sustainable forestry, reduction of CO² emissions: Social and ecological standards are the basis of responsible action and are not perceived as added value by our customers, but are taken for granted.

Our Code of Conduct prevents discrimination and promotes a sense of community, respectful cooperation and environmentally friendly behavior in our working conditions.

We procure papers of various quality levels for our international customers and provide them with comprehensive information on sustainability reporting. To this end, we record all environmentally relevant parameters in an audited database, e.g. certifications of the paper suppliers as well as the proportions and origin of the raw materials used.

We place special emphasis on the use of recycled fibres in paper production and we also know from which sustainably managed forests the timber used for our paper qualities originates.
