Sustainability Management

We do not see sustainability as a “risk to be mitigated”. With our sustainability management system, we aim to be a net positive contributor to the world we live in. Considering increasingly scarce resources, demographic change, and global warming we take responsibility for people, the environment, and we conduct our business responsibly and reliably.

Join us towards a sustainable future. Together, we can make the world a brighter place.

At Heubach sustainability initiatives are more than just rhetoric. We optimize our own processes by saving energy, reducing our footprint, and sourcing our raw materials sustainable. At the same time, we offer our customers innovative and high-quality products that help them save resources and achieve their sustainability goals.

“At Heubach we want to make the difference. Sustainability as a central element of our strategy and as a driver of innovation: with our sustainable products and solutions, we offer our customers real added value and help to conserve resources at the same time.”

At the core of our sustainability initiatives lies the dedication to environmental stewardship as the production of pigments and pigment preparations is particularly energy intensive. In view of climate change, we see it as our responsibility to reduce our emissions as much as possible. The increase of energy efficiency and the switch to renewable energies is therefore one of our top priorities.

We work continuously on production and process technology and innovations to reduce our use of energy and resources while lowering our emissions. This includes reducing energy consumption, optimizing waste management practices, and adopting eco-friendly technologies.

Our commitment extends to social responsibility. We believe in fostering positive relationships with our employees, customers, and the communities in which we operate. Our workplace practices prioritize safety, health and employee well-being. We know that an inclusive environment, that leverages its diversity, leads to a more enjoyable and productive workplace.

By investing in employee training and development, we aim to create a work environment that nurtures talent and innovation. In addition, we actively engage with our local communities through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and volunteer programs. We understand the importance of contributing to the betterment of society and strive to be a responsible corporate citizen.

Reporting and Continuous Improvement

We recognize that transparency is paramount in demonstrating our commitment to sustainability. Regular reporting on our ESG performance is a key component of our transparent communication strategy keeping our stakeholders informed about our progress, challenges, and goals. Through this transparency, we invite constructive feedback and suggestions, fostering a culture of continuous improvement.

Public Commitment

We underpin our Engagement and commitment publicly. Through cooperation with renowned and recognized institutions and organizations. Heubach has signed the UN Global Compact and thus publicly committed itself to upholding the 10 principles in the areas of human and labor rights, anti-corruption, and environmental protection. We furthermore collaborate with Responsible Care, the chemical industry’s global, voluntary initiative which aims to improve safe production, handling and use of chemicals across the supply chains.
