Sustainability & CSR
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability play an important role within our organisation. In all our activities, we take the impact on the environment, society and people into account as much as possible. We do this by recycling waste and saving energy, among other things. We want to reduce our CO2 emissions to a minimum, both now and in the future.
By reusing a large part of our total foam production and applying sustainable coatings, we want to make the (medical) world a bit more beautiful and healthier. Non-usable remnants are reused for many other applications worldwide. As a family business, we are proud of our social character; the people we work with and cooperate with are of great value to us. We also welcome people with disabilities or of advanced age. We also support charities that focus on the welfare of people and animals.
Because everyone should be able to participate in society, we have been employing people with a disadvantage on the labour market for years. They are trained by us, receive extra supervision and are of great value to our company. Just like our other employees, they play an important role in our organisation. We believe that everyone deserves a fair chance to contribute to society and be part of our team.
Because we only have one world and we want our children to have a bright future, we want to be a green employer. Where possible, we use as few harmful substances as possible during the production process and we save energy and therefore harmful CO2 emissions. One of the ways we do this is by using less environmentally harmful products where possible, such as water-based adhesives without solvents. With an eye to the future, we are making important sustainable investments. For example, we are switching our gas-heated spray booths to electricity and will largely generate our own energy by investing in solar panels.
We recycle a large part of our total foam procurement. To reduce our waste, we shred the cutting waste into flakes. This is high-quality material that can still be used perfectly. These flakes are suitable as filling material for our industrial beanbags or as packaging material. Through close cooperation with our suppliers, we also ensure that clean residue ends up with the right users to be reduced. Our goal is to return at least 80% of the remnants to the suppliers who then reduce the remnants to raw materials.
We consider it important to support good causes, such as the Assistance Dog Foundation. Through the use of an assistance dog and animal support therapy, Hulphond Nederland helps people with a physical or mental care need. Every year we donate a nice amount of money around Christmas time. Furthermore, we support various local and (inter)national charities because it is necessary and because we enjoy helping others.
Teamwork ensures powerful end results and customisation is achieved through far-reaching cooperation. The IFG engineers stand beside the specialists of the customer to develop the optimal solutions together. A working method in which everyone can use his specialties, within a cooperation with very short and fast communication lines.
