OUR SUSTAINABILITY STANDARDS
PETROFER utilises its quality and environmental philosophy as a strategic instrument for the continuous improvement of its products and services globally. Throughout our constant innovation and high quality standards, a company principle is our environmental consciousness. Every employee stands behind this principle, bringing expert knowledge and enthusiasm to create a better sustainable future. EcoVadis are one of the world's largest and most recognised providers of corporate sustainability assessment and certification. PETROFER approached them to independently measure our sustainability credentials.
We strive for ecological, economic and social balance:
- The conservation of natural resources
- The avoidance of environmental pollution
- The use of environmentally sound and energy efficient processes
- The selection of suppliers according to quality and environmental aspects
OUR CONTRIBUTION TO PROTECTING NATURE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
PETROFER is involved in nature and environmental initiatives to protect bees. We invest in bee colonies that are managed sustainably and naturally using species-appropriate methods. We support breeding programmes for non-commercial bee populations, helping to protect bees against extinction. These projects are part of PETROFER’s commitment to doing business in a way that protects our society and our environment – 80% of our native flowering plants need bee pollination to survive, and a third of the world’s food production relies on bees.
PETROFER BEE PROJECT
Project started 2017 with to date:
- 10 total colonies of bees in Austria
- 2 bee colonies in Hildesheim, more are planned
- 15 trained employees for support of bees in Hildesheim
PETROFER is involved in projects for the protection of bees, nature and environment, and is committed to species appropriate, near natural husbandry of the bee population. We will continue our commitment to projects that aim to protect the environment, preserve human health and conserve natural resources.
By investing in natural and species-appropriate bee-keeping, PETROFER is making an important contribution to protecting our environment and maintaining our ecological balance.
The PETROFER HOPE SCHOOL project supports schools in emerging countries. We donate money to fund new schools, renovations and educational equipment in China and India, enabling children of migrant labourers to attend school and receive an education.
Combining tradition and vision, the company relies on its innovation, quality, expertise and employee dedication. The final product and our customer satisfaction represent the aspiration that PETROFER stands for.
