Sustainability

Sustainability and responsible business activity are an integral part of our company strategy.

 

Spheres of activity which contribute to MULTIVAC´s sustainable development. 

 

Our products

In the development our our machines, we always have the complete material cycle in mind. This applies to their manufacturing as well as to their resource consumption in operation.

And last but not least, good packaging in itself serves sustainability, since it protects and preserves the packaged product securely over long distances and during extended storage periods.

 

Digitalisation

We support our customers in operating their equipment as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, allowing them to produce packs with maximum quality. 

We provide our customers with smart services such as condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, and OEE analysis. 

With the MULTIVAC X-line, we offer our customers a new dimension when it comes to packaging reliability, quality, performance, and future-proofing.

 

Supply chain & procuremement

Thanks to our proximity to our suppliers, we have an influence on the availability, quality, and sustainability of the products we buy. 

Over 50 % of our suppliers are based in our region. This means we are strengthening the regional economy, reducing traffic pollution, and minimising the risk of infringing human rights. 

For the evaluation of our suppliers we also take into account sustainable procurement policies.

 

Our employees

Our employees are our most valuable asset and the most important investment into our future. They are all proud to be part of the MULTIVAC family. Some 6,000 people worldwide work in our Group, all of them with the objective of producing the optimum packaging solution for our customers in the widest range of applications.

Our HR strategy is based on a long-term approach. We offer a comprehensive range of training and further education, and we take into consideration demographic change, diversity, as well as work-life balance.

We also support our customers in the development of sustainable packaging concepts in order to be able to fulfill current packaging legislation.
