Sustainability – a matter of conviction

The idea of making WBV more sustainable in a holistic approach came from the belief that business should play a crucial role in creating and implementing a more sustainable future. We are aware that packaging is an important part of the modern economy, but it can also have a major impact on the environment and nature. As a family business that has been run for several generations, sustainable and economic action is a core need for us in order to be able to offer future generations a solid perspective.

We want to be an important part of a sustainable future and express this in our corporate actions. Against the background of this claim, the so-called “greenwashing” does not represent an acceptable sustainability solution for us!

The claim to sustainability is a transparent presentation of the environmental influences, the product components and open supplier and customer communication in terms of the environment.

That is why we have decided to pursue a sustainable business strategy based on environmental, social and economic sustainability. We are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment by using the most environmentally friendly materials possible and implementing energy efficiency measures. In addition, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate through donations and volunteerism. It is also our goal to also be economically sustainable by pursuing a long-term entrepreneurial perspective. As a family business, we want to be a role model for sustainability and social responsibility.

That’s what we stand for

As a family company in the fifth generation, it is important to us to deal responsibly with the issue of sustainability in order to be able to pass the company on to the next person. That’s why we try every day to do something for our environment. When selecting our suppliers, we rely not only on reliability and a fair price, but above all on partners who have sustainability standards comparable to ours.

In addition to recycled products, many of our suppliers therefore rely on electricity from renewable energies such as solar and wind energy, short transport routes and well-coordinated water cycles.

FSC-certified carrier bags and waste bags

Vegetable raw materials, especially cellulose, form the basis for our paper carrier bags and rubbish bags. We therefore bear a special responsibility when using these raw materials, which we of course live up to.

Our paper products are made from 100% renewable raw materials, are CO2-neutral and biodegradable. Through the independent certification by the FSC, we ensure the resource-saving use of the raw material wood.

As confirmation, we have had the FSC seal for some time. Incidentally, only certified companies are allowed to label their products with the FSC seal.

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

FSC is the most reliable organization for safeguarding important environmental and social standards in the forest.

With standards that apply worldwide, the unprecedented involvement of all relevant interest groups and the support of well-known companies as well as recognized independent environmental and social organizations, FSC is considered the most credible solution for sustainable forest management.

The Blue Angel

The Blue Angel has been the federal government’s environmental label for over 40 years. Independent and credible, it sets demanding standards for environmentally friendly products and services.

For our garbage bags we use at least 80% recycled plastic waste in production. Our goal is to actively contribute to the reduction of waste and to avoid using fossil raw materials.

This means that we can set an example in the production of our rubbish bags and label them with our Blue Angel certification.
