Our Management Approach

We hold ourselves accountable

We believe that sustainability is an obligation - for three good reasons. As a family-run company with an extensive history, we have long been aware of our responsibility to future generations and therefore treat all resources with care. What is more, sustainable working has become an important subject for our customers and the end consumers. Our intention is to provide the market with printing inks that satisfy this expectation and, at the same time, contribute to a product's success. As well as these ecological and economic aspects however, the social consequences of our activities also play a major role, as we strive to be a good employer, partner and neighbor.

A partner to rely on

We look at sustainability along the whole of the value-added chain - starting with the selection of raw materials and the production processes to the finished product and the services we provide. We have been working closely with customers and suppliers for decades, and have therefore created a strong basis for trust. Another key aspect is product safety for the consumer.

What is more, we meet our social responsibility as an employer. A worldwide network of in-house experts is responsible for safety at work and product safety.

To ensure that we are a good partner at all times, we work on the basis of a Code of Business Conduct. For example, this Siegwerk Code of Conduct includes the following:

  • We are committed to fair competition
  • We are committed to integrity in business dealings
  • We are committed to transparent financial reporting
  • We are committed to fair and respectful working conditions
