Working Groups & Associations

Achieving More Together

At the heart of the industry

Whether at a company or personal level, at POLIFILM, we are passionately dedicated to our work. That’s why our colleagues throughout the Group companies engage in various diverse ways with numerous associations and initiatives. This ranges from participation in international working groups to active involvement in shaping DIN standards. Being at the centre of the action for us, means being involved in actively shaping it. Therefore, we are often not just silent members but active participants contributing resources to over 23 associations,

industry groups and working collaborations. Our colleagues share their expertise in combination with customers, suppliers, and competitors. They are dedicated discussion partners, interested stakeholders and advisors. Because they understand that tackling the major issues that affect us, such as the circular economy, responsible internationalization, and conscientious resource management, is fundamentally better when achieved together.
