SUSTAINABILITY

 

BENBARTON HOFMANN GMBH is a family company with a long history and high standards.

As a premium manufacturer in our industry, we are very aware of our responsibility. We embrace this responsibility towards our own company, customers and suppliers, as well as the environment and society as a whole. Acting sustainably and making decisions whilst taking into account social, economic and ecological concerns have always been high priorities for us:

  • BENBARTON has been awarded the ECOVADIS gold medal
  • Non-toxic: we are OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified. Learn more at www.oeko-tex.com
  • Made in Europe: more than 90 % of our goods are made in Europe. In addition to many benefits, this allows us to minimise transportation and improves our carbon footprint 
  • Social sustainability: we are a member of the AMFORI BUSINESS SOCIAL COMPLIANCE INITIATIVE BSCI. Our suppliers and producers are tested for social standards and have earned exemplary marks. Learn more at www.amfori.org
  • We are signatories of the United Nations’ GLOBAL COMPACT. Learn more at www.globalcompact.de/en
  • We are guided by the ILO Core Labour Standards, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
  • We are constantly expanding our range of products and our expertise with innovative, sustainable solutions

 

Sustainability is an integral component of our activities and objectives. Our actions and our team are guided especially by the values of integrity and fairness.

We have created a CODE OF CONDUCT that establishes our understanding of sustainability and compliance, as well as the requirements we have of our suppliers and third-party providers.

In 2018 we faced the independent, internationally recognised ECOVADIS rating for the first time and are proud to announce we earned a gold medal.
This also documented our leading position in the area of sustainability, and we use this rating as a basis to further optimise our services.
