"The new Gold status is, among other things, a clear message to our customers who attach importance to sustainability aspects when selecting their business partners. The certification of our European sites to ISO 50001 and the certification of our US sites to ISO 14001 were two major milestones for us," said Dr. Ina Werxhausen, sustainability manager at Oxea.
Despite the excellent result, Oxea's goal is to continue to develop further: "In the area of sustainable procurement, for example, we have included new criteria on social aspects in our supplier assessment in Europe. We will continue to actively promote these topics. The dialogue with our stakeholders is important to us, as it shows us how we can continuously improve," Werxhausen added.
In its Sustainability Report 2018, Oxea specifically shows the Oxea employees behind the project with a focus on its successful product Propyls and gives an insight into the success factors in a lively story.
