SUSTAINABILITY AT VERTICAS

Thinking about the future together. In view of climate change and the increasing scarcity and price of natural resources, the focus is increasingly shifting to improving resource efficiency in production. We can improve our resource efficiency by optimizing both the production process chains and the life cycle of our products. Not only individual components, but also entire process chains are becoming increasingly energy-efficient. We pay close attention to important standards and optimization processes with our partners. Keywords are here: Optimization of the use of materials, long-lasting life cycles of products and energy recovery in production processes.

 

SETTING AND PURSUING GOALS

The compliance with social and ecological standards is an important concern for us. Our way of working and the selection of our suppliers, factories and service providers is shaped by this attitude. We support the principles of the UN Global Compact of the United Nations, which in our view provide the basis for a worldwide social and ecological working method. We have also committed our suppliers and partners to these principles in order to clearly differentiate ourselves from other competitors. We do not ourselves produce in countries such as Bangladesh, Pakistan or India, where we cannot guarantee and control minimum social standards, even though the cheapest prices are a great temptation.

Verticas GmbH was awarded the bronze medal in 2020 in recognition of its CSR rating by EcoVadis.

  • since 2009 member of UN Global Compact
  • since 2009 member of Charta der Vielfalt
  • since 2020 member of EcoVadis
  • since 2020 member of Climate Partner

PRODUCT RESPONSIBILITY

The climate change is on-going and the natural resources are limited – the economy needs to act more resource efficient.

We can influence the resource effectiveness as well as the production processes and the product life cycle. Processes are optimized and together with our partners we respect important standards.

Additionally Verticas draws its attention to the production of the textiles, promotion and merchandising products to secure that they are manufactured under good social and environmental conditions. By complying with the code of conduct we take responsibility for our products. On top of that we do safety tests. We trust the competences of our partners TÜV Rheinland, LGA Nürnberg, Prost & Partner and Fürth. Based on our customers’ requirements we have set our criteria on the “major-and-minor-mistakes” and the AQL Levels.
