Sustainability, health and process excellence


Lohmann provides customised adhesive tape solutions around the world for a wide range of applications and in many sectors of industry. As an international company, the Lohmann Tape Group is in constant contact with a vast number of different people and organisations, and hence to representatives of a wide variety of interest groups. Sustainable working calls for a common understanding of the different influences being exerted on the company and of the different interest groups.

For this reason, environmental and quality policies were used as the basis to issue guidelines for all employees, which they can use to derive their own individual objectives and as orientation in their day-to-day work. The guidelines also clearly explain to interest groups such as customers, suppliers and neighbours how our values, vision and mission are manifested in our actions. As a member of a registered chemical industries association (Verband der Chemischen Industrie e.V.), we take an active part in the worldwide initiative "Responsible Care". Our engagement for the environment

In the interests of sustainable business, areas such as quality, hazard prevention, safety at work, transport safety and environmental protection are always under scrutiny. This involves actively evaluating diverse requirements and regulations and ensuring that they are met. Irrespective of this, the continuous further and re-development of products and production processes is to be used to efficiently improve resource usage and for the prevention or reduction of risks. After all, as people working at the company, we must be aware of our responsibility.
