At last! Our current sustainability report is here. And the subject of sustainability is more topical than ever. Never before have so many people gone onto the streets for a rethink of climate policies. However, we also find that the term “sustainability” is being used almost in an inflationary way. More and more products are coming onto the market advertised as sustainable. Finding out what is really sustainable is not so easy at times.
This is exactly where our sustainability report starts. We explain and clarify what sustainability means for us at HALFAR®. For this, we create transparency around our processes and give insights into our world of work. The report shows what exactly makes our products sustainable products and how we position ourselves as a company, what drives us and what we strive for.
Reporting on sustainability enters the next round
We first comprised a list of our implemented projects in 2017. The first real sustainability report followed in 2018. This contained a developed reporting structure reflecting the three sustainability dimensions for the first time. What fitted onto just over 30 pages at the time, has now grown to over 60 pages. An indication of the impact achieved through our joint work.
In order to further structure this year’s report, to make it clearer, and more practical, we have integrated the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) in this year’s report. An SDG matrix, created in collaboration with B.A.U.M. Consult, presents all measures in a compact and clear way.
The following flipbook shows you our SDG matrix. In reading mode you can also download the matrix. Just click on the respective button.
So what is HALFAR® doing now, in order to be able to call itself sustainable?
The answer is: A lot! It starts where ideas are created – at our company location, and projects with other committed people, all the way through to our products and decoration processes.
Moreover, our new workstations with height adjustable desks and our new “New Work Area“, which is distinguished by its open-plan interior design, are on the right path within the context of sustainable and healthy working. And don’t forget our new logistics centre, which provides many benefits for our customers, the environment and logistics processes in equal measure.
HALFAR® says thank you!
At this point, we want to thank everyone who wrote this report with us, who implemented the many measures and projects or supported us with this. The results, the positive feedback and the dynamics around the subject of sustainability show us that we are on the right path in our work. Furthermore, we are motivated to work ever more efficiently and sustainably and to show what else is possible!
