Our long-term goal is to become completely independent of fossil-based raw materials.
We comply with regulatory requirements with regards to the environment, energy, and quality, and secure continued customer satisfaction and constant improvement through our systematic environmental and quality efforts according to ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
