As a company, we value corporate social responsibility, both to society and towards our employees. Taking care of the environment is therefore a recurring element in our daily business operations. Separating waste, using recyclable packaging materials, co-developing 100% natural products and Lean & Green transport are some examples of this.
Sustainable Development Goals
Our sustainability approach is based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) initiated by the United Nations in 2015. These 17 Sustainable Development Goals provide a shared blueprint to end poverty and to protect the planet to ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, now and into the future. Because we want to contribute to achieving these goals and are committed to making our planet future-proof, we actively support them.
Royal Utermöhlen currently focuses on the SDG’s that are closely aligned with our core business: Good health and well-being (SDG 3), Quality education (SDG 4), Responsible consumption and production (SDG 12) and Partnerships for the goals (SDG 17).
What we are exactly doing, is described in detail in our Sustainability Report.

Every year we all throw away many kilos of plastic, far from all of which is recycled. To make an important contribution to a better environment, we are introducing more and more products in cardboard packaging with an FSC label. And we will continue to do so in the coming years. We will analyze the possibilities for each product without compromising the sterility, quality or safety of the product. Together, we will keep many kilos of plastic out of our environment every year.
