Our Responsibility

Driving progress towards a sustainable future

The world’s limited resources are becoming increasingly depleted and the environmental footprint of humankind is already more than the planet can sustain. That’s why we’re committed to driving progress towards environmental responsibility and sustainable development.

Our company’s efforts to promote sustainable development include defining concrete goals that are relevant for our operations and introducing management systems in line with leading international standards for environment, health and safety. We collect and analyse data from our production sites and use it to continuously improve efficiency and occupational safety, while also reducing energy consumption and minimising waste.

In February 2020, the company announced that electric and hybrid engines will be included in the fleet of Grünenthal's cars for managers at its site in Aachen, Germany. The decision is part of the Grünenthal's ongoing commitment to promoting sustainability by reducing the environmental footprint of its operations.
