Quality and environment

Responsibility for people and environment

We take our responsibility for people and the environment seriously

Responsible actions for the benefit of society require the consideration of social and ecological values in thought and actions in addition to economic aims.

This objective, to harmonise ecology and economy, is an integral part of the corporate culture at PAPSTAR and anchored firmly in our daily work. This sustainable approach is evident not only in the use of renewable raw materials for our products, but also in the consistent review of our business processes with regard to ecological criteria.

Our whole focus is the development of future-oriented product line and marketing concepts for our customers, as well as the professional processing of the entire service chain from ordering to order processing to the management at the point of sale.

An integrated quality management system sustainably ensures the service expertise of PAPSTAR GmbH.

PAPSTAR - the green Brand

Since July 2018 PAPSTAR is allowed to wear the seal "Green Brand"!

A re-validation took place in December 2019 and was successfully passed with a significantly increased performance in terms of sustainability. We have been wearing the Green Brands with the 1st star since January 14, a sign of possible commitment to global climate protection.

GREEN BRANDS are brands with the seal of approval (companies, products, service providers, food and personalities) that make a significant contribution to protecting the environment, nature and the climate.

GREEN BRANDS produce environmentally friendly, always act with regard to their own responsibility for the preservation of natural resources and commit themselves to a high degree to the preservation and balance of nature and sustainability.

Our consumption of energy, metals, raw materials and the production of greenhouse gases are beyond the planetary limits. It cannot go on like this. Prosperity and a good life for all human beings is possible only if we do not destroy the resources of the earth.

Accordingly, at PAPSTAR we have anchored sustainability as a central element in our vision. Sustainability is our top priority and it becomes the core message of our brand PAPSTAR.
