Sustainability is an issue that concerns us all

Sustainability is on everyone's lips these days – but what does it actually mean for Vetropack as a company?

Our strategy embraces five strategic thrusts, and Clearly sustainable is the first of them: it represents our ambition of becoming Best in Class in Sustainability by 2030. As we journey towards this destination, we are holding all areas and hierarchical levels of our company accountable; we are setting ourselves binding goals, and integrating sustainability into our business activities.

Vetropack has the ambition to be Best in Class in Sustainability by 2030. Our Clearly sustainable strategic thrust guides us along the path towards this goal.

We intend to be known for our innovative, ecologically compatible and socially acceptable manufacturing processes and our safe glass products of high quality. To protect the environment, we endeavour to conserve resources and water, close substance cycles, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to an inclusive corporate culture and development of our employees based on continuous learning, Vetropack should be appreciated as an Employer of Choice. 

Our 2030 strategy sets ambitious sustainability goals

«To achieve our sustainability goals, we must hold all hierarchical levels accountable and we have to integrate sustainability into our daily business.»

The material topics are the core elements of our sustainability work, and they provide the basis for the related reporting. As stipulated in the legal requirements and standards, we review these material topics at regular intervals: the most recent review was undertaken ahead of the reporting for the 2023 fiscal year. Our appraisal included changes to the regulatory environment, and we aligned the topics even more closely to our core business activities and processes. As in the past, we continue to establish specific links between our material topics and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). 

For reporting purposes, we structure our material topics according to Economic Impact, Environmental Impact, Social Impact and Governance.
