Scroll down to read more

As a market leader, we should set the standard for environmental care and responsible citizenship. That’s why our sustainability strategy focuses on creating responsible chemistry for a better future. In our view, corporate responsibility and sustainability are fundamental to providing superior products and outstanding services. You can’t have the one without the other.


Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Strategy

Stahl’s corporate goal is to achieve a transparent supply chain that continuously reduces its environmental footprint. In particular the focus is on the supply chain into which Stahl sells its products and services. Our strategy is to initiate activities that promote transparency and to introduce low-impact technologies designed to maximize environmental protection and stewardship. A key factor is our influential position as a provider of products and services to manufacturers of different materials used in the automotive, apparel, home furnishing, footwear, garment and other related industries. We see sustainability as a significant opportunity, to gain competitive advantage and to drive operational excellence throughout the company.

The Stahl Sustainability Standard: improving our environmental footprint

We do many things to improve our environmental footprint. These range from developing innovative products to publishing environmental indicators for our activities around the world. A commitment to ethical business practices is central to the Stahl Code of Conduct, and we operate an ambitious global safety awareness campaign about our Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) policy. We have also made exciting technology acquisitions and formed partnerships that are directly linked to our sustainability goals. As part of this, we have identified 5 Focus Areas – The Stahl Sustainability Standard – to guide us. The 5 Focus Areas cover raw materials, responsible operations, trusted partnerships, innovative solutions and people & society.


United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Stahl’s membership in the UN Global Compact and its alignment to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals is a clear indication of its commitment to a more sustainable future. To demonstrate its progress, the Stahl Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Report is submitted each year to the UN Global Compact.


Global Reporting Initiative

In order to report on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) topics that are critical to Stahl and its stakeholders, we report per the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The materiality matrix methodology ensures that Stahl addresses material topics, i.e.: the ones that matter to the company and its stakeholders. This approach ensures that the full scope of the impact of the company's activities are taken into account, from its own operations to its interactions with suppliers, customers, consumers, communities, shareholders, government and NGOs.
