In 2010, Sandler published its first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, being one of the first nonwovens manufacturers and one of the first medium-sized companies in the region to do so.

In this report, the company addressed the topics of sustainability and corporate responsibility, providing a comprehensive insight into projects geared towards saving energy, conserving resources and safeguarding the health and safety of employees.

Personal approach

With the new edition of its CSR report, the company believes it is taking an even more personal approach: A young member of the Sandler team invites the reader to join him in discovering the company and finding out how the rather abstract concept of sustainability is a part of everyday business for Sandler.

From quality assurance and product safety, environmental protection and energy management to logistics, through to apprenticeships and professional training, health management and regional commitment—this report shows that sustainable business concerns all areas of company life and can be implemented only through the support and commitment of each individual staff member.

Employees in focus

Therefore, it is Sandler employees who present the various topics; subjects for which they themselves take responsibility in their daily work. They also show that corporate responsibility is by no means a management topic only.

The report’s new imagery demonstrates that sustainability und responsibility are not solely dead serious subjects, but that contributing to the preservation of our environment can also be great fun.

Commitment to sustainability

For Sandler the commitment to sustainability has long since been self-evident, the company reports. In line with this philosophy, the new CSR report comprehensively presents the company’s commitment to generations.

”Formed and shaped by the Sandler family and operated by our staff, for 135 years, we have been strongly linked to entrepreneurship – regionally rooted but globally active. At our company headquarters in the heart of Europe, we implement ideas and new developments quickly, and have a flexible approach to dealing with client needs,” says Dr Christian Heinrich Sandler, Chief Executive Officer.

Employing 650 people, the company makes products for various markets, such as hygiene, wipes, automotive, filtration, engineering, and home textiles.
