Corporate Social Responsibility
Our economic activities are focused on sustainability. As a family business, we strive for a future-friendly corporate development with secure jobs in a healthy environment.
We are convinced that only long-term partnerships with our customers and business partners are the key to success. The prerequisite for establishing successful partnerships is trust in the quality and safety of our products and services.
To justify this trust, our understanding of sustainability relates to all levels of the value chain. This includes research and development aimed at eco-efficiency, transparent supply chains, energy- and environmentally friendly production, and international leadership in recycling.
It is the people in our company who develop and implement the processes required to achieve this. We therefore encourage and engage our employees and develop their sense of responsibility for sustainable business.
What does CSR at VEKA mean?
Our CSR concept integrates the importance of economic stability and secure jobs in a healthy environment. Based on this understanding, we have defined three CSR dimensions:
Environment, People and Company.
We want to create a world that is worthliving in, and that is viable and fair for future generations.Since business, society and the environment are interlinked, we always look at themtogether. In other words, for us, sustainability is always three-dimensional.
Latest news on CSR
It is the third time that VEKA publishes its group-wide CSR booklet entitled "Future-friendly". Every two years, the company group makes its sustainability activities visible and explains how it lives up to its corporate responsibility. The new edition looks back over the years 2021 and 2022.
The VEKA Group with its two system providers VEKA and GEALAN has set itself the clear goal of climate neutrality. By 2045, the Sendenhorst-based group of companies aims to operate in a climate-neutral manner across the entire value chain at all locations and across all scopes.
Heavy equipment was recently used at the GEALAN production and logistics site in Tanna: with two cranes, a new silo was erected at the site entrance, visible from afar. The container, which weighs around seven tonnes, was delivered the night before by heavy transport.
In the future, Rewindo material, i.e. PVC granulate from old windows, will be stored in the additional silo.
As Manager Corporate Social Responsibility/ Sustainability, David Beckers drives the topic of sustainability within the VEKA Group and thus fulfils the family-run company's claim to make the world a little bit better. For our distribution in Switzerland, Mr Beckers has now given an interview on the topic of CSR and sustainability at the VEKA Group as part of the magazine "durchblick".
