Non siamo solo un produttore leader a livello internazionale nella produzione di pellicole plastiche di alta qualità e di altri prodotti in materie plastiche, bensì anche un datore di lavoro di portata mondiale e locale. Siamo quindi consapevoli della nostra responsabilità nei confronti dell’ambiente, della società, delle dipendenti e dei dipendenti di RENOLIT sia nelle nostre sedi sparse per il mondo che nella nostra sede centrale nella regione metropolitana Reno-Neckar e prendiamo attivamente parte a varie iniziative per assicurare competitività, sostenibilità e successo futuro.
We see our responsibility as reaching across generations, not just financial quarters
Committed to sustainable development
We feel a special commitment to sustainability and responsible action is firmly integrated into our corporate culture. Our understanding of sustainability extends holistically to the three dimensions of ecology, economy and social issues.
As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality plastic films and other plastic products, we feel a special commitment to the topic of sustainability. Responsible business has many different aspects, which is why our understanding of sustainability stretches across the three dimensions of ecology, economy and social responsibility, and is firmly anchored in our corporate culture.
Our annual sustainability report provides information on our activities and progress in the past financial year.
In addition, we have been publishing a sustainability magazine since 2019, which compactly shows how RENOLIT lives its responsibility. Selected key figures combined with vivid highlight projects make the topic of sustainability a tangible experience.
„We deliver sustainable and innovative polymer solutions“
Our commitment to greater sustainability is anchored in our corporate strategy ONE RENOLIT 2025 and set out in the mission statement of the RENOLIT Group. As a member of the "Circular Plastics Alliance", or CPA for short, we voluntarily committed ourselves in 2020 to defining and successively implementing measures that are intended to contribute to greater sustainability by, among other things, increasing the amount of recycled plastic, thus actively contributing to the achievement of the CPA's goals.
VINYPLUS and VINYLPLUS Deutschland e.V. Committed to PVC
VinylPlus is a voluntary commitment by the European PVC industry for sustainable production and use of PVC plastic. The programme creates a long-term framework for the sustainable development of the PVC industry by addressing a number of critical challenges.
The commitment, which focuses on accelerating the transition to a circular economy, sustainable production and decarbonisation of the value chain, as well as engaging civil society and NGOs, will apply in the EU-27 plus Norway, Switzerland and the UK.
Thus, the VinylPlus 2030 commitment is based on three pathways:
- Expanding the circular economy in the PVC value chain.
- Progress towards carbon neutrality and minimising our environmental footprint.
- Building global alliances and partnerships for the SDGs.
Among others, the target is set to increase PVC recycling to 900,000 tonnes annually by 2025 and one million tonnes annually by 2030.
We see the voluntary commitment as key to the sustainable development of the PVC industry - as a founding member of the Vinyl Foundation, RENOLIT co-finances the sustainability initiative.
RENOLIT is also heavily involved in the "VinylPlus Deutschland" (formerly AGPU) community.
The working group "VinylPlus Deutschland" has the following tasks:
- As a service partner, it advises member companies on the topics of the environment, sustainable development and consumer protection.
- It conducts dialogue with decision-makers in politics, business, trade and NGOs (non-governmental organisations).
- It collects and condenses information from the above-mentioned areas and makes it available to member companies and external decision-makers in a way that is appropriate for the target group.
- It bundles and represents the interests of the German PVC industry in Germany and in Brussels. The aim is to position PVC properly among decision-makers and thus to strengthen the confidence of the target groups.
Circular Plastics Alliance
The Circular Plastics Alliance (CPA) is an initiative of the European Commission that aims to promote the circular economy for plastic products in Europe and to recycle and reuse recycled plastic into new products in the EU internal market.
In September 2019, RENOLIT signed the Circular Plastics Alliance Declaration to promote the use of recycled plastics in Europe through voluntary measures. To date, more than 282 associations and companies have joined the CPA, demonstrating their commitment to the circular economy in the plastics industry. The associations and companies have set themselves the goal of incorporating at least 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics into products and packaging in Europe by 2025.
By signing, we have committed to working with the other signatories, within our own competences and responsibilities, to implement the content of the Circular Plastics Alliance Declaration.
Human rights always in our focus
As an internationally active company, we are aware of our responsibility with regard to the observance of human rights - both in our own company and in our business relationships. How RENOLIT fulfils its due diligence and what measures are taken to further protect human rights is shown in the following Policy Statement on Human Rights signed by the Executive Board.
In addition to numerous projects and internal initiatives, RENOLIT is actively involved in the following industry initiatives and associations:
