ESG

Our Sustainability Journey

In the light of the enormous environmental, social and governance hurdles ahead, Insulcon has made a profound and ambitious commitment to sustainability. This commitment was inspired by a very clear decision: to place ESG at the heart of our business process. We firmly believe that safeguarding the planet, our workforce, and our business is not only vital for the company's success but also a collective obligation shared by all within the Insulcon community. 

We are committed to ensuring that ESG matters are considered and supported throughout the group, serving the best interests of all those impacted within our company, including customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders and the communities we live in. 

ESG is a journey and there's still a long way to go. As we are moving forward, our ambition increases and new challenges present themselves along the way. But we are convinced: together, we (can) make a difference.

We believe that our suppliers play a crucial role in helping us achieve this goal. We are committed to working with suppliers who operate responsibly and share our dedication to environmental & sustainability standards. Conducting supply chain due diligence is an important part of our overall sustainability efforts.

We expect our key suppliers to acknowledge and sign our Supplier Code of Conduct and to complete an annual self-assessment questionnaire, in order to verify their policies, commitment and initiatives.

We are committed to working with our suppliers to ensure that they meet the standards set forth in this code of conduct, and to continuously improve our collective environmental, social, and ethical performance.
