Sustainability at SCHAEFER KALK

As a family-owned company with more than 160 years of tradition, our top priority is to safeguard the long-term future of the company. For us, acting sustainably does not only mean a temporal dimension, but also the comprises the responsibility for economic, social and ecological issues at all times.

In that regard the seven guidelines of the Association of the German Lime Industry (Bundesverband der Deutschen Kalkindustrie - BVK) which express the sustainablility principle in the German lime sector are not only obligatory bat are a matter of course. The guidelines are based on the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the core labour standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

EcoVadis, a recognized and independent sustainability assessment platform for global supply chains, evaluates our sustainability management in accordance with international standards for economic, environmental and social responsibility. We have received a silver award for our sustainability management.
