As our business grows, our responsibilities grow to all identified stakeholders.
Our way of meeting these challenges is to make sustainability a key part of our operations and to keep it central to our plans for future success.
Ontex has taken its first steps towards sustainability, by implementing some ISO standards and a series of ecolabels.
Now, more than four decades on, the idea of caring for our people and the environment is firmly rooted in the way we work and the products we design and produce.
- We promote ethical behaviour among all our employees and suppliers, wherever they are in the world.
- Social and environmental considerations are included in all decision-making processes.
- Accountability and transparency, legal compliance and long-term thinking are key parts of our strategy.
We published our first sustainability report in 2015, the same year the business was reorganized ensuring social and environmental considerations remain at the heart of future growth.
"The ambition is to get sustainability embedded in our Ontex DNA with clear focus on caring for people and offering products to customers and consumers without compromising the needs of future generations."
