The goal is to identify guidelines that encourage the procurement of sustainable products and services, without compromising the performance of our company. Long-term savings are considered when purchasing products, as opposed to short-term cost savings. We recognize that waste can be reduced by using reusable products and compostable and recyclable materials. By buying organic products, we contribute to creating a pesticide-free world, and by purchasing regional products, we strive to reduce the CO2 emissions from transport. To support this initiative, our company will continuously improve our own purchasing process and ask our suppliers for advice on whether there is an alternative product on the market that is fair trade or eco-certified.
