Sustainability . Compliance
With the current edition, POLOPLAST presents its sustainability report in its sixth edition. The report, written according to international standards, shows a comprehensive portrait of a company that has anchored sustainability in its core values. It records how POLOPLAST acts sustainably in the economic, environmental and social fields.
At POLOPLAST, we all have one thing in common: We live and breathe sustainability. Every day. We need not compile a huge programme for that, as numerous examples from our daily work routine show. For us, sustainable is what allows us to be successful in our business, what secures our jobs, and what helps to save resources. Economic, social and ecological targets are all equally significant. We consider sustainability not as a trend, but as a vibrant part of our corporate culture. As we have done for more than sixty years.
Volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous: Market globalisation, almost inscrutable financial flows, incredibly fast product and trend cycles, digitisation, new concepts of mobility, etc. - we get the feeling that the world is turning faster and faster. There is a term that describes the increasingly complex and dynamic nature of the business world: VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). In times of VUCA, our corporate compass by the name of sustainability helps us to maintain our bearings. Our value-based credo gives us orientation and stability. This “SPIRIT” is the one constant that helps us to navigate safely when the sea is rough, and to remain on the track towards our common goal.
WE TRUST IN GENERATIONS. WE ACT SUSTAINABLY. WE EMBODY ENTREPRENEURSHIP. WE BUILD ON PEOPLE.
We thrive on the trust of our customers, employees, owners and the public as well as on the performance and integrity of our group. An important pillar of our success story ist that we have always regarded responsible and lawful conduct as an indispensible part of our corporate culture. We don‘t make any compromises when it comes to morals, ethics, the environment and safety. Only if we act in accordance with rules and regulations at any time and any place we may expect social acceptance for our businesses and projects. The integrity of each individual is essential and key to the success of our business. Lawful and ethical behaviour protects against serious legal and economic risks and strengthens our reputation and trust in our business. Our Code of Conduct gives the basic principles for ethical conduct in accordance with the regulations.
Not only the responsible and lawful behaviour of our employees is indispensable for us, but also that of our business partners. Every business partner is part of our responsible corporate strategy and shapes the reputation of our company through their appearance, behaviour and actions. In our Supplier Code of Conduct, we have therefore set our principles for the purpose of legally secure, sustainable and responsible cooperation, compliance with which we expect from our suppliers.
Compliance with laws, rules and internal regulations is a top priority at POLOPLAST. We can only protect our company, our employees and our business partners if we act in accordance with the law and with integrity. Our whistleblower system, which is called "Tell it Cody", picks up concrete indications of (potential) misconduct or malpractice in our organisation. This includes, among other things, violations of our Code of Conduct, antitrust law, criminal law or human rights violations. Your information helps us to improve our organisation and minimise risks. You are free to submit your report anonymously or transparently with your name and contact details. The report will be forwarded to the Compliance Department and the responsible Compliance Ambassador, who will process the information confidentially and reliably. Your report will be treated with absolute confidentiality. You do not have to fear any negative consequences as a result of your report, provided you have reported in good faith. Not only employees of our company, also business partners, customers and other third parties have the opportunity to submit information on violations of the rules.
