Sustainability at KROENERT

As a company with a history of more than 100 years, KROENERT acknowledges its responsibilities toward people and the environment. That is why KROENERT pays such close attention to sustainable business practices. This starts with its products, which ensure a precise and the thinnest possible application; in this way they not only help save resources, but also protect the environment.

KROENERT also contributes to sustainability by developing resource-saving processes for solvent-free coatings. At the company’s test centre in Hamburg, customers are offered a unique service: they can explore new formulations and test their application in practice before the machine they wish to purchase is even produced. Various systems and numerous procedural processes are available for coating and laminating web-type materials. This gives customers a sense of security when investing in a new system or machine.

In addition to conserving resources and actively engaging in research and development, the company is also mindful of its responsibilities towards its employees. They are the key to KROENERT’s success and that of its customers. Therefore, the company is committed to providing good working conditions. It offers personal development opportunities to all its members of staff to enable them to improve their career prospects. By providing professional training and working closely with universities of applied sciences, KROENERT offers students a variety of educational opportunities such as internships and support in earning academic degrees. This ensures a new generation of qualified staff for our industry.

Moreover, KROENERT actively supports a number of initiatives and engages in partnerships to keep up to date on industry knowledge by interacting with others as well as to highlight the importance of sustainability.  

This includes the UmweltPartnerschaft Hamburg. Membership is a public commitment to voluntary environmental and climate protection in Hamburg. Active partners may use the logo of the initiative, which in the Hanseatic city is regarded as a seal of quality for outstanding companies.

KROENERT is also Alliance Member of the Sustainability Initiative Blue Competence. Blue Competence is an initiative of the VDMA for promoting and communication of sustainable solutions for the Mechanical Engineering Industry. By using the trademark “Blue Competence”, we commit ourselves to these twelve Sustainability Guidelines of the Mechanical Engineering Industry.
