About 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, which is why the earth is also called “the blue planet.” Greiner Assistec is committed to protecting this planet and its inhabitants. That is why sustainability is very important to us and does not just start with the final product. Rather, it is much more important to us to see the big picture.
“blue solution” is our promise to act in an ecological, economical, and socially responsible manner toward the environment, society, and toward our customers. That is because, as we see it, sustainable development is possible only by implementing all three aspects simultaneously.
Our environment is our past and our present, and we must all ensure that it still has a future in store for us! Greiner Assistec gladly accepts this responsibility!
As part of an industrial enterprise, it is very important for us to emphasize visible and sustainable aspects. We do not just respond to environmental changes – we make it our goal to act proactively in means of sustainability. This effort is focused on three core sectors:
There are many ways to save CO2: Short delivery distances, reuse of released energy sources, renewable energies, etc. At Greiner Assistec, we set numerous priorities that are good for our environment as well as our cost efficiency. For instance, we use the principle of heat recovery to heat our industrial sites.
Another example is the
which we signed in 2014. As an official pact partner, the company voluntarily entered into a binding commitment to comply with the Austrian climate protection goals.
These are: to reduce CO2 by 16%, to increase energy efficiency by 20%, to meet at least 34% of total energy needs using renewable sources of energy, and to achieve a 10% share of renewable energy sources in the mobility sector.
As business unit of a large firm, we can be an important role model for the responsible use of raw materials and resources. This is an opportunity we do not wish to pass up!
We therefore strive to use as few plastic parts in our products as possible, for instance by using fillers such as stone meal, cellulose, or wood-plastic composites. For packaging solutions, we use cardboard-plastic combinations to reduce the plastic portion.
We also campaign for the use of recycling materials as a third component. For instance, our plastic pallets are made purely of 100% recycled material.
When manufacturing goods – whether individual parts or entire assemblies – we place great emphasis on safety.
At our customers' request, we therefore offer a range of tests in which our manufactured goods are put to the acid test. We establish the test criteria together with our customers beforehand.
For example, we offer the option of conducting drop tests. When requested, we also conduct chemical laboratory tests on the raw materials used and examine raw material formulations. This is how we ensure the highest standards of safety.
Greiner Assistec can look back on a long company history as part of the company Greiner Packaging – characterized by steady growth. For us, sustainable company management means long-term entrepreneurial thinking! This gives us a sense of responsibility toward our customers, our employees, and our natural environment. We offer our customers supply security, and our employees secure jobs and fair working conditions!
As for sustainability, we place special importance on the relationship between ecological action and economical use. Contrary to the traditional point of view, corporate environmental protection measures at Greiner Assistec are seen as potential areas for economic sustainability. This approach provides a win-win situation that results in reduced ecological burdens and greater economic benefits.
As a business unit of a native Austrian and sustainable company, Greiner Assistec sets a high bar for working conditions and safety standards not only at home, but at all of its international sites as well.
At the same time, Greiner Assistec is aware of the great significance of regionality! Each site must be seen as being part of a region. We place great value on this by creating secure jobs that will contribute to the economic and social welfare of the regions where the sites are located.
