Our Enviromental Policy - Guiding Principles

Marabu's overriding goal is to protect the natural world and conserve its essential resources – air, water and soil. Minimising the environmental impact of our production activities is an ongoing task that constantly presents us with new challenges.

1. Responsibility
Safeguarding human life and the environment is integral to all our business processes. We oblige all our employees to comply fully with all relevant duties and policies.

2. Products
We develop state-of-the-art products with low emissions across their entire lifecycle.

3. Use of hazardous materials
We choose all our raw materials with the greatest care. Where technically feasible, we avoid the use of hazardous substances that require special safety precautions. Wherever possible, we employ less harmful substitutes that pose much lower risks.

4. Resource efficiency
Responsible consumption of raw materials and energy-efficient production processes help conserve primary natural resources while improving the cost-efficiency of our business. We prioritise the use of renewable energy and wood from sustainably managed forests.

5. Assessment and improvement
We continuously assess our environmental management practices and the outcomes, both in terms of risks and quantifiable key performance indicators. This enables us to identify potential improvements and take corresponding action.

6. Investment
Ongoing investment in state-of-the-art plant and equipment supports efficiency in the development, manufacture and use of our products.

7. Communications and transparency
We engage in open dialogue, both internally and externally. The knowledge and experience of all employees play a key role in achieving continuous improvement. We take account of the requirements of stakeholder groups and respond transparently. Our commitment to health and safety, and to the environment, is also reflected by our participation in chemical industry associations.
