Sustainability

As a balance between economy, ecology, and social responsibility, sustainability has a long tradition at Bischof + Klein. The family-owned company's orientation to economic standards is supplemented by a sense of responsibility towards its employees as well as conscientious interaction with the environment, the climate, and resources. When developing sustainable packaging solutions, B+K concentrates on four aspects: the use of regranulates, the creation of recyclable laminates, reduced material inputs, and the use of renewable raw materials. Today, we are able to offer a sustainable variant of each of our products.

Executive Board Statement

360 degrees – that is our perspective when it comes to flexible packaging and technical films made of plastic and laminates. We think in all directions and for all concerned, whether they be customers, suppliers, logistics providers, consumers, fillers, or disposal companies. Bischof + Klein also won the German Packaging Award in 2021 for this all-round vision.

Economy

Represented around the world, Bischof + Klein remained wholly owned by the founding families in 2021, for whom sustainable corporate development is of central importance. At Bischof + Klein, we regard the challenges surrounding the core issues of complexity, process standardization, and digitalization as an opportunity. Due to the continuation of the pandemic, the collapse of supply chains, and geopolitical uncertainties, the reporting year presented us with additional challenges that we were able to successfully overcome.

Ecology

As a sustainability pioneer, we have been undertaking professional sustainability management at B+K for over 25 years now. We systematically analyze our environmental impacts and use the results as a valuable decision-making basis for our activities. Each year, we have the improvements in our environmental performance audited by independent environmental experts according to EMAS*. This year has seen the addition of further certification that underscores our pioneering role.

Social Affairs

The coronavirus pandemic continued to pose challenges to our work together during the 2021 reporting year, too. B+K took health care into consideration by successfully implementing an effective infection protection system. We also seized the opportunities presented by challenges in this process: the increase in working from home has demonstrated that digital communication within the company, but also with partners, is efficient, sustainable, and progressive.
