EcoVadis Silver Medal: Award for sustainable commitment
Braunform receives silver status in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) ranking of EcoVadis and is well above the industry average given by rating experts.
Social responsibility is becoming more and more important in society, but also in industry. As a global company Braunform attaches great importance not only to successful but also to sustainable business practices. Responsible action and sustainable solutions play an essential role here. "We develop and produce injection molds with which our customers manufacture end products for which - according to the current state of the art - plastic as a raw material has no alternative or is more resource-friendly than the possible alternative. The award confirms that we are on the right track with our sustainability statement and is also an incentive to further improve our performance.", says owner and Managing Director Pamela Braun. The goal of the medium-sized company is now to implement the optimization potentials discovered by the evaluation in internal improvement measures in the future.
