CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Developing, producing and distributing products has an impact on the lives and well-being of people and exhausts the planet. Lanzfeld is aware of this and takes its responsibility by operating sustainably: making a profit that does not come at the expense of people and the environment. Also called corporate social responsibility (CSR).
At Lanzfeld, at least 50% of the employees are women and at least 10% are at a distance from the labor market or have a migration background. Lanzfeld does not use child labor. Dutch labor legislation is strictly followed and Lanzfeld is well insured against illness, accidents and liability. Every year, at least 1% of the net profit is spent on recognized causes with the theme health, freedom and culture.
Lanzfeld has the ambition to become climate neutral in 3 steps in 3 years. The first step is to map out the CO2 emissions as an organization and to compensate them in 2021. The “Climate Neutral Group” helps Lanzfeld to determine the “CO2 footprint” and the compensation.
CO2 reduction program
The second step is to reduce the CO2 emissions of the organization and the production: an improvement plan for energy consumption, raw materials, packaging and waste at our own production location in Delft. That plan will be implemented in 2021.
Suppliers to pass the bar
Finally, it is the turn of the suppliers: they are assessed on their organization, products and certificates, so that ultimately Lanzfeld as an organization, production location and all its products can be certified as climate neutral. The ambition is to achieve this by 2023.
Examples and results
Lanzfeld will move to new business premises with a heat pump and solar panels in 2022.
At the company’s own production location in Delft, only FSC-paper is currently processed.
An environmentally friendly alternative is now available for 50% of the product packaging.
