Why Sustainability is important to us

The desire for health and a future worth living connects people. Sustainable action is the foundation for this. As a global, plastic-processing medical technology company, we bear a broad range of responsibility whilst helping to shape our future.

Greiner Bio-One can look back on 60 years of history. Through management based on long-term durability, we are paving the way for sustainable development and the continued existence of our company. This allows us to support the medical care of patients worldwide, contribute to progress in medicine and safeguard our employees’ jobs.

Both the legal requirements and society's expectations are constantly increasing and spur us on to find sustainable solutions to the global challenges of our time.

Sustainable development requires responsible action from several perspectives. It is our goal to give equal consideration to ecological, economic and social aspects.

Our commitment is therefore very broadly based. An excellent supply of high-quality products is just one of our particular values; it is also important to us as a plastic-processing company, that we are energy-efficient, sustainable, and protect natural resources.
We believe that sustainability and plastic  can go hand-in-hand. As a responsible employer, we are also responsive to the needs and demands of our employees, whose commitment and passion make the difference.

We give you an insight into the activities we are implementing here at Greiner Bio-One in line with our responsibility to help create a sustainable environment.

CEO Greiner Bio-One International GmbH

“We are proud of what we have achieved so far.
However, we still have a lot to do. We will continue to look for new ways to make our future a little more worth living.”

Ilke Panzer, CEO Greiner Bio-One International GmbH

3 sustainability action areas at Greiner Bio-One.

At Greiner Bio-One, we see sustainability as an overarching goal to be achieved through activities in three action areas: environment, people and ethics. The boundaries between these action areas are inherently fluid. What is important is the holistic view of all our company’s areas of influence, so that we can move closer to our goal, a sustainable future for us all, with each individual step.
