We take responsibility

We accept Responsibility

The exploitation of our planet’s finite resources is reaching its limits. All of us must consistently change our actions in order to leave the earth to subsequent generations in the best possible manner.

We support the 17 goals of the United Nations for sustainable development and have anchored the policies of the Green Deal (European Union) and the Bioeconomic Strategy (Germany) firmly in our company agenda. Our corporate philosophy is aimed a sustainability and we have minimised our ecological footprint. We have been a climate-neutral company since 03/2021, by recording all of our company’s emissions and we have compensated unavoidable emissions via a project.
We are convinced that our measures for sustainability, which we have implemented in all of our company divisions, lead to entrepreneurial success.
Economic, ecological and social targets belong together!

With the global climate protection project by Plastic Bank for marine projection we are making a contribution to the UN targets:

Climate neutrality


Our climate-neutral activities have been worthwhile:
We are a CLIMATE-NEUTRAL COMPANY and therefore a huge step further on the way to the major target of the climate-neutral economy.

Climate-neutral company, that means:
We have recorded our greenhouse gas emissions, reduce them continuously and have Climate protection projects compensated.

Our steps in detail:

1. Calculating emissions
Together with ClimatePartner, we have calculated our CCF – Corporate Carbon Footprint, i.e. the CO2 footprint of our company. In doing so, we take emission sources, such as energy and heating, into consideration, as well as business trips, office supplies and all emissions that we cause as a company.

2. Avoiding and reducing emissions
Our CCF clearly shows us where we can further reduce CO2. We update it on a regular basis, so that we have an overview of our success in reducing and identifying other parameters.
reduced the unavoidable emissions through measures that we have implemented:

• Switch to green electricity / gas
• Installation of a photovoltaic plant.
• Recycling of thermal energy.
• Lighting with LED technology.
• Efficient systems for generating refrigeration and compressed air.
• Modern building insulation.
• Promotion of electric mobility.

3. Compensation of emissions
However, there are still a lot of emissions that we are currently not able to avoid. We consistently compensate them by supporting a climate protection project from the ClimatePartner portfolio: Stopping the flood of plastic. (www.climatepartner.com/1087 - Implemented globally by Plastic Bank. Technology: Marine conservation.)

Money in return for plastic – this is the approach of Plastic Bank. In Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil and on the Philippines, people are collecting plastic waste. In local collection centres, they can exchange these for money, food, drinking water, mobile phone credit or even school fees. The project ensures that less plastic ends up in the ocean. Instead, it is recycled and processed into so-called Social Plastic, which serves as a raw material for new products, such as packaging. The CO2 compensation takes place via a gold standard climate protection concept, the wind farm on the Philippines: www.climatepartner.com/1091 or our wind turbine project on Aruba: www.climatepartner.com/1040. For each compensated ton of CO2, 10 kg of plastic waste are collected.

We, as a manufacturer of plastic packaging, have committed to the goal of conserving valuable resources and submitting plastic packaging to the cycle. We intend to prevent littering and are therefore enthusiastic about this project and support it with full conviction.

Therefore, we also promote the achievement of the global sustainability targets (Sustainable Development Goals), such as combating poverty or the improvement of living conditions in emerging and developing countries.

4. Creating transparency
With our" Climate-Neutral Company" label and the ID tracking number, we can trace our climate neutrality:


Circular economy

Resources – whether fossil or biogenic – have a very high value for us.
Our goal is to keep valuable materials in the cycle. We have the solution for closing the flow of materials.

With Maag I pro-tect, we analyse the product lifecycle of packaging from the end perspective and include the reuse in our packaging development.

We thereby fulfil all of our preconditions for circularity, as a wide range of reuse occurs for our PP solutions in numerous downstream markets.

Resource Conservation


With the introduction of the LEAN management philosophy in the process and production, we are continuously optimising:
Production based on your requirements in small batches (our “SuperMAAGt”) avoids surplus quantities and the destruction rate is reduced. In printing pre-stages ad the production process, automation and robotic systems ensure efficient procedures.

At the product level, with Maag I pro-tect, we reduce packaging material and conserve resources through circularity. The Pius Check (production-integrated environmental protection) for resource efficiency attests to our very good results.


In addition to economic and ecological sustainability, social sustainability is also a part of sustainable development. We take our social responsibility very seriously and make our
contribution to further increase the development of our company in UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Fair business practices, employee-oriented human resources policy and responsibility locally, as well as along our supply chain, are the basis for our social sustainability.
We create a positive working environment for our employees and do a great deal for their further development:

  • Own vocational training in three training professions
  • Project cooperation with local higher education institutions
  • Support programme for highly motivated employees
  • Commitment to the environment, education, health, sport, art
  • Extensive social activities

In 2017, we had ourselves certified for the first time as a “Family-Friendly Company” and the certificate was extended for another three years in 2019. The reconcilability of family and profession is anchored in our corporate mission statement. This creates trust and motivation for employees in all areas of the company.


A trusting, transparent and long-term partnership with our business partners is our aspiration.

We have ourselves certified on a regular basis in the areas of production, sustainability and social responsibility. This way, we can continue working on ourselves! We are proud of our good results. Our certifications are available for you to download !
