What we do today has a major impact on the future of generations to come. This is why, in addition to commercial objectives, CSC JÄKLECHEMIE also pursues values that relate to the sustainable development of society and the environment.
To do this, we align our Corporate Social Responsibility – i.e. how we act in the market, and how we interact with the environment, employees and other interest groups – based on clearly defined guidelines. Clear evidence for our commitment, which often far exceeds the legal requirements, is our involvement in renowned regional and international alliances, for example:
The FECC Ethical and Business Principles of the FECC European Association of Chemical Distributors – a voluntary declaration of commitment for compliance with ethical and business principles that we co-signed in 2011.
The Umweltpakt Bayern(eco-pact in Bavaria) hosted by the Bavarian State Ministry, which has long established itself with voluntary, cooperative environmental protection as a fertile ground for innovations and best practice methods. We have been a member since 1998 and have already been appointed an Umweltpakt ambassador in recognition of our long-standing commitment.
The Responsible Care programme of the Verband Chemiehandel e.V. (Chemical Trade Association), which we have taken an active role in from the beginning and is independent of legal requirements. Its standards, which are constantly being refined and improved on, provide us with guidance for the optimisation of our different areas of work – environmental protection, product responsibility, occupational health and safety, transport safety and dialogue.
In addition, we are also constantly re-developing our flexible offerings to improve work-life balance and ensure that family life and work life are compatible with each other. This is because we know that satisfied employees are more motivated and more capable. Completely in keeping with the notion of team spirit, we also encourage our employees to take part together in leisure activities – for example with our very own chess team or at sporting events like the inter-company B2Run in Nuremberg.
