Certificates & Responsible entrepreneurship
An overview of the certificates that Nedac GmbH has earned while active in the German market.
The promotion of environmentally friendly, socially beneficial and economically viable management of forests. That is the mission statement of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC). The globally active, non-profit and non-governmental organization was independently founded in 1993 as a result of the Environment and Development Conference in Rio de Janeiro. Today the FSC is represented in more than 80 countries with their own national task forces.
The FSC label on wood or paper products is a clear indicator that the product comes from responsible forestry. Consumers who purchase FSC products actively contribute to the sustainable management of forests around the world. FSC labelled products secure the use of forests to meet the social, economic and environmental needs of present and future generations. The label also ensures that the product hasn’t been mixed with non-certified (i.e. uncontrolled) wood or paper at any point during the processing or trade chain.
Der Grüne Punkt
The Dual System Germany GmbH (DSD) has launched and organized the world’s first dual system to end-user friendly and high-quality recycling of sales packaging. Founded in 1990, the DSD is now a leading provider of take-back systems. In addition to household-related collection and recycling of sales packages, the range of services offered by DSD includes the environmentally friendly and economical recycling of electronic waste and equipment and transport packaging. The Der Grüne Punkt brand, created by DSD for the recycling process, is protected worldwide and is one of the most internationally recognized trademarks. It is used in many countries as a financing symbol for package recycling.
By continuously optimizing services and processes, we constantly strive to keep more and more recyclables in closed circuits, therefore making a decisive contribution to conserving environmental resources and limiting greenhouse gasses.
Our products have a long-standing tradition of being carefully selected and produced. That is why we attach great importance to sustainability transparency and the careful use of resources among our business partners. Membership of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) a voluntary cross-industry initiative of retailers based on the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UN Global Impact and the UN Declaration of Human Rights, is therefore mandatory for us. We have set ourselves with the permanent task of monitoring these binding social and environmental standards, as well as those of our suppliers and manufacturers.
