Corporate Social Responsibility
Within our field of expertise, we cannot escape a certain degree of emissions. At Vadelo, we work diligently every day to take societal responsibility. Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are not strategies that you implement overnight. It's a process that starts small and grows. We plant seeds and take pride in our growth.
We conduct our business with a focus on the three P's:
Attention to people, employees, and stakeholders. Within our culture, employees take center stage. We operate under the belief that happy employees form the foundation, which then leads to customer satisfaction and good results. Positive outcomes fuel our motivation and subsequently impact employee happiness. It's a continuous process where the components influence each other, making each aspect important.
Our exceptional policy is based on a two-way street, fostering good employee practices and good employer practices. This includes the involvement and approachability of the management, flexibility towards employees, and investment in employee development through training and external education. It also encompasses the opportunity for active participation in important decisions. Vadelo pays attention to:
• Socioeconomic issues
• Placement of employees with a distance to the labor market
• Health and safety
• Diversity and opportunities
• Direct economic values
Sustainable business practices and Profit go hand in hand. Profit involves creating economic value by companies and affects the feasibility of decisions concerning People and Planet.
We are a proactive, flexible enterprise that adapts to changing market needs. As a result, we hold a strong position as a company and maintain financial health. As a rapidly growing company, we are generating jobs in the local community. The profits are reinvested in new sustainable developments and processes. The ultimate outcome is a result of our collective effort.
We have only one world, and we must take care of it. A better environment starts with yourself. At Vadelo, we consider how we can contribute to this cause. We focus on the environment, society, resources, and alternatives. This is what we are already doing:
- Recycling: When packaging material is still sturdy enough, we reuse it. Boxes don't automatically go into the paper recycling; instead, they are repurposed as packaging material.
- Packaging Minimization: By not adding extra boxes around our products, we reduce the amount of packaging and can manage logistics more efficiently.
- Producer Collaborations: Together with our producers, we critically examine the current packaging of our items. As a result, our new private label, Hynex, now contains the same number of gloves in a smaller package. This reduces waste, not only in terms of packaging but also lowers logistical impact.
- Products: We not only consider current packaging but also our product range. For this reason, we've introduced ecological, recyclable disposable gloves. These gloves are made from ecological plastics, making them more environmentally friendly. We've also included cash register rolls and paper with the FSC certification in our assortment.
