Our sustainability standard

Sustainability Is in Altropol’s DNA and in Every Individual Product.

A stable employer for our workforce, a reliable partner for our customers, and a sustainable company that already takes environmentally friendly production into account during the development of new products—sustainability at Altropol has many sides.

Sustainability has played a significant role at Altropol for a long time and decisively shapes our day-to-day actions. At our family-owned company based in Stockelsdorf, we’ve been committed to using renewable energies for decades to best protect nature and energy resources for future generations. Acting out of conviction, we take responsibility for our environment and use this guiding principle to pave the way for our product development and production. Working in a sustainable manner isn’t just any empty promise for us, but is simply business as usual—we’re actively helping to shape our planet’s future!

With our company philosophy, we don’t only want to conserve Earth’s resources; we also want to accept social responsibility for our employees. Our future-oriented ideas and activities will therefore also safeguard jobs for generations to come and create an environment in which everybody can develop freely and realize their full potential. The fact that we highly value a health-promoting atmosphere and offer our staff a modern workplace—keeping pace with the times both in administration as well as in our production facilities–is not just done in vain.

We also apply our high standards of sustainability when we work with our customers from a wide variety of sectors in order to actively promote the establishment of long-term relationships and, thanks to our profitable growth, offer our customers a reliable supplier for duromeric resin systems. Today, tomorrow, and in the future!

For several years now, Altropol relies on regenerative energy sources. In order to do so, in 2013 we installed a photovoltaic system. With this system we managed to produce 73,000 kWH of solar power in 2021, which is equivalent of 37% of our annual energy consumption.

For more than 20 years now, we have products based on renewable materials in our portfolio. The product make up to 48% of our annually sold products. Thus we contribute to the preservation of natural ressources and the protection of the enviroment as a whole.

The recycling of packaging material is part of our processes for several years now. For example we saved 11 tons of resources an 1.4 tons of carbon dioxide alone through these efforts.

Last but not least, we installed a pond on our factory site, which serves as a habitat for many birds, insects and amphibic animals.

With "GLS KlimaProtect" we send all parcels within Germany 100% climate neutral, thus contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions and also improving our own environmental balance. In this way we make a valuable, active contribution to climate protection and to sustainable, future-proof parcel logistics.
