Much more than just a promise

We are convinced of the technological versatility of plastics and the resulting advantages for users and consumers in specific applications. In order to develop these, conscious handling – from sourcing to disposal – is a key function.
As a plastics processing company, we are aware of the effects we have on the environment and society and are aware of the resulting responsibilities.

Based on this, for us at POLIFILM, sustainability is more than a rigid concept enriched with emission calculations which we place over existing principles and processes.
For us, sustainability is much more the interlinking of topics that were essential to us long before the concept of sustainability gained relevance in our daily business.

A balance of economic, environmental and social factors has always been the secret of our company’s success.
